Mumbai: Arjun Kapoor has revealed that working on his upcoming movie ‘Half Girlfriend’ has been emotionally grueling but fun. The 31-year-old actor plays the role of Madhav Jha,  a young man from Bihar, in the Mohit Suri helmed film, which has Shraddha Kapoor as the female lead.

"It has been an amazing experience working on ‘Half-Girlfriend’. I loved working with Mohit and Shraddha and the entire team. It has been a difficult film for me emotionally because of the character I am playing. I have really enjoyed myself putting out there. Fingers crossed, hopefully, people will enjoy the film as much as we have enjoyed making," Arjun was quoted as saying.

 

The film, based on Chetan Bhagat's novel of the same name, has the author as one of the producers on the project. Arjun also divulged that Chetan was very cooperative, refraining from interfering with the making.

"The best part about Chetan is he is non-interfering. He has never once come and told us that 'I feel it should be this way and not that'. He is very collaborative. He takes a back seat and has allowed us to take his material and make it our own. It's been a very good collaborative experience," Arjun said.

 

The actor, who had also starred in the reel adaptation of Chetan’s ‘2 States,’ confessed that though he’d love to star in the future adaptations of the author’s books, he wouldn’t push Chetan or the concerned to producers to cast him.

'Half- Girlfriend' is scheduled to release on May 19, 2017.
