The book Half Girlfriend will have a Delhi girl character, Riya and buzz is that actress Alia Bhatt is most likely to be roped in for the role in the film adaptation.
One leading daily quoted a source saying, "It's a role tailor-made for Alia and both Mohit and Chetan believe that Alia who had earlier played Ananya Swaminathan in 2 States based on another Chetan bestseller, will do complete justice to Riya. Alia herself is keen to work with Mohit who is her cousin."
However, the report also quoted the director Mohit Suri saying, "Alia is an amazing actress. I am currently developing the script and have not reached the casting stage. All I can say at the moment is that she would be great for the part."
