With plum projects, endorsements and mega blockbusters under her belt this Bhatt girl is here to stay. Busy shooting with Shahid Kapoor for Vikas Bahl’s Shaandaar, Alia Bhatt could land up being a part of Half Girlfriend as well.
Well, Chetan Bhagat is all set to turn producer with the big screen adaptation of his next novel, Half Girlfriend. The author has joined hands with Mohit Suri and Ekta Kapoor who will be on board as co-producers.
The book is being launched on October 01, 2014 in Mumbai and Delhi and if all goes well then Alia Bhatt could be essaying the character of Riya, a posh girl from Delhi, who is the book’s protagonist.
Though the book is yet to release, a source close to Alia Bhatt states that, “Riya is a student at St. Stephen’s and has an air of self importance around her. But that is just her exterior. It’s a role tailor made for Alia and both Mohit and Chetan believe that Alia, will do complete justice to Riya. Alia herself is keen to work with Mohit, who is her cousin.”
As far as Mohit Suri is concerned, he is busy scripting the film and says that he has not yet reached the casting stage on Half Girlfriend but does not rule out the possibility of Alia Bhatt being the part of the project.
“Alia is an amazing actress. I’m currently developing the script and haven’t reached the casting stage. All I can say at the moment is that she’d be great for the part.” states Mohit Suri.
Half Girlfriend will be launched tomorrow (October 01, 2014) by Kriti Sanon and Huma Qureshi.
Here’s wishing team Half Girlfriend all the best and we do hope that both the novel as well as the film would be a huge success.
