NEW DELHI — He is a rural boy from Dumraon, and she is a rich and beautiful girl from Delhi. They meet through basketball and form a unique relationship. This is the premise of the Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer “Half Girlfriend,” which began shooting here June 8.

Directed by Mohit Suri, the film is based on the novel of the same name by Chetan Bhagat about a Bihari boy in a quest to win over the girl he loves.      

“Finally, the story comes to life. Big day as #HalfGirlfriend begins shoot! @mohit11481 @arjunk26 @ShraddhaKapoor,” Bhagat, who is one of the producers of the film, posted on Twitter alongside a picture of a clapperboard from the shoot.      

Arjun Kapoor, who plays a basketball player named Madhav Jha in the film, wrote, “And so it begins... #halfgirlfriend #basketball @mohitsuri @shraddhakapoor Let’s Play!!!”      

The 30-year-old actor also shared a video clip from the sets of the film.

Suri’s wife, former actress Udita Goswami, tweeted, “So, finally the day is here we start a new life for the next few months where you live breathe #HalfGirlfriend. Own it genius! @mohit11481.”     

“Half Girlfriend” is slated to hit theaters next year.
