Director Mohit Suri who is busy with Humari Adhuri Kahani with Vidya Balan is set to direct the film adaptation of author Chetan Bhagat's upcoming novel Half Girlfriend, which is about a Bihari boy falling in love with a girl from upper class society.
"Delighted to announce super talented Mohit Suri @mohit11481 (Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain) will direct the film based on my next book Half Girlfriend (sic)," Bhagat tweeted Sunday.
This will be Chetan Bhagat's sixth novel to be made into film. The earlier films are 3 idiots based on 'Five Point Someone', Hello based on 'One Night @ The Call Centre', 'The Three Mistakes of My Life' as Kai Po Che, 2 States based on '2 States: The Story of My Marriage' and a yet-untitled upcoming film based on 'Revolution 2020'.
Mohit Suri has Humari Adhuri Kahani and the remake of French film Intouchables in his kitty.
The cast and crew are yet to be finalised. Mohit Suri too confirmed about this and said, "I liked it because of the simplicity and the identifiability with the story. The girl's character is that of a musician in the film. It's not a love story for perfect people, but it's about how normal people fall in love and how we hurt people whom we love the most. The story is simple and yet I cried at two instances."
Let's see who will play the lead characters of this book adaptation.
