Mumbai: Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif was the first actress who was approached as the leading lady in Mohit Suri’s directorial venture ‘Half Girlfriend’ which is a reworked copy of Chetan Bhagat’s novel by the same name and have finalized Arjun Kapoor in the main lead.
However, when Katrina denied from working in the movie, the director went on to sign Shraddha Kapoor as the leading lady opposite Arjun Kapoor.
On the other hand, the ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ actress didn’t intend to offend the demand of the script instead she liked the script and the idea of the movie but the reason behind saying no to the movie was something else.
Report had it that, Kaif told Mohit Suri about casting another actress in the lead role as she wasn’t fit for the college-girl role and would look older than Arjun. This honest confession made by her impressed the director and considering her point he went on to sign Shraddha in the main lead.
While director Mohit wishes and hopes to team up with Katrina in his next venture.
