Actor Arjun Kapoor says his character in Half Girlfriend has been emotionally taxing.
The 31-year-old actor, plays the role of Madhav Jha, a young boy from Bihar, in the Mohit Suri-directed film which also stars actress 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. Hopefully, people will enjoy the film as much as we have enjoyed making it,” Arjun said.
The movie is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name and the author is also a co-producer.
“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.”
The actor has also been part of the movie adaptation of Bhagat’s novel “2 States” and even though he will love to collaborate with him in future as well, he will not push Bhagat or the filmmakers to cast him in the movie version of his other books.
Half Girlfriend will release on May 19, 2017.
Arjun says his choice of movies is influenced by the kind of cinema he has watched growing up.
Arjun’s next venture is director Aneez Bazmee’s comedy movie Mubarakan. The project brings him and his uncle Anil Kapoor together for the first time. The actor says the cast will start filming for the movie in November and he is excited to work with Anil. – CINEWS
