Chetan Bhagat's new novel, a rural-urban love story about a boy from Bihar falling for an English-educated Delhi girl, is set for release this October. Since a lot of his novels have been turned into Bollywood films, I am sure that within no time filmmakers will be lining up to buy the right for this novel as well.
So I wondered, who would be cast in this Bollywood film? The story of Half Girlfriend goes like this, "Half Girlfriend is a simple love story. It is about a boy who doesn't speak English well and brings out the issues related to English in the country today. It is a rural-urban love story that not only touches the heart, but also inspires the reader," Bhagat said in a statement.
"A boy from Bihar with big dreams who falls in love with the beautiful Riya, a rich lass from Delhi," he added. Bhagat's 'Five Point Someone' was adapted into blockbuster 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead and '2 States' was adapted into another blockbuster by the same name starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor. He even scripted the screenplay for the recent Salman Khan starrer film Kick.
Chetan Bhagat took to Twitter recently and tweeted, "Hi all! Happy to announce my next book titled Half Girlfriend." Ever since that a number of jokes went viral on the Internet, but no matter how much fun people are making of him and his book, one has to agree that his books do sell and the movies so turn out to be blockbusters.
So only time will tell as to which producer or director will be visiting this writer to adapt his novel into yet another movie and if it does happened which actor-actress combo will star in it. Here is a list of our choices for the film, 10 couples who will be perfect for the film, if it ever gets made.
