[tps_footer]Film ‘Half Girlfriend’ seems to be jinxed with its star cast lately. Many actors have been in news for being cast as the main lead of the film ‘Half Girlfriend’. After Sushant Singh Rajput dropped the film, reports suggest that actor Shahid Kapoor might fill in the shoes of the lead actor. Sushant walked out of the movie and soon actor Arjun Kapoor gained headlines for the same. However, no official confirmation came about in case of Arjun’s casting in the film.
Speculations making rounds now suggest that actor Shahid Kapoor has been approached to play the lead role in ‘Half Girlfriend’. The makers of the film have been heard sharing that Shahid was the original choice for the film but the actor did not have dates then. However, things might fall into place now with Shahid Kapoor on board.
The film ‘Half Girlfriend’ has been in news for its change in casts and replacements. Not only the lead actors have been changed and replaced, also there have been many reports about the female lead of the film. The last update on the leading lady of the film ‘Half Girlfriend’ was that actress Kriti Sanon was being considered for the role.
The Mohit Suri directorial film ‘Half Girlfriend’ is an adaption of Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name. The film is being helmed by Ekta Kapoor. According to a source, “Shahid was to play the Bihari loverboy. Then Shahid’s Shaandaar bombed and the film’s producers went to Sushant. Unfortunately for them, he had already given away those dates to Dinesh Vijan for his directorial debut. Shahid is now back in the project. It seems the role was destined for him.”
Shahid Kapoor is currently prepping up for Vishal Bhardwaj’s film ‘Rangoon’ and is also tied up with the film ‘Udta Punjab’. Now whether Shahid Kapoor will surely be seen in the romantic flick or no only time will tell.
