The movie is based on Chetan Bhagat’s Novel 'Half Girlfriend', directed by Mohit Suri and features Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles. The movie, set in rural Bihar, New Delhi, Patna, and New York, is the story of a Bihari boy in quest of winning over the girl he loves.
The movie divulges the sentiments and linguistic struggles of a backward rural Bhojpuri-laced Hindi-speaking boy from Bihar as he enrolls himself at the prestigious English-medium St. Stephen’s College, New Delhi, and falls in love with a "high class English-speaking rich Delhi girl" schooled at Modern School, New Delhi. The girl does not admit the relationship but agrees to be his "half girlfriend".
'Half-Girlfriend' divulges into a unique phenomenon, where boys and girls are not clear about their relationship status with each other and journey of the lead characters thereon!
