Talking about the film, Arjun in his statement to a daily said, “There is pathos and drama in Half Girlfriend. It’s not just a frivolous rom-com (romantic-comedy). It’s a drama. That film has a journey. It’s a romantic journey and for me that is very exciting.”

He added, “I have never done film where there is a rise and fall in love of a boy. If anybody has read the book, then they must be aware of the journey of Madhav Jha (his character). In the film there is a time lapse (of about) seven-eight years between the beginning of the film and the end of the film.”

Shraddha will be seen playing a high profile Delhi girl. The film will hit theaters in 2016.
