Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor are currently shooting for
their upcoming film Half Girlfriend and we all know that both Arjun
and Shraddha are basketball players in the film. Now if you thought
that Shraddha will only be an athlete and nothing else, then you've
got it totally wrong. Not only is she an athlete, she's also a glam
doll who has worked her way up and is a high society Delhi
Director Mohit Suri opened up to Mid-Day by saying, "There's a
lot of conjecture around how Shraddha's character has been adapted
from the book. She has worked hard to become the high society Delhi
girl. We have gone all out to glamorise her and is nothing like the
girl-next-door that you have seen so far."
When asked about the practice sessions of the game, Mohit Suri
opened up by saying both Arjun and Shradhha are quick learners and
have got the basics of the game right with a lot of training. He
said, "Shraddha would train for hours on end every day for over a
month. While Arjun is a basketball pro, Shraddha was supposed to
play a university girl, who is damn good at it. It was important
for her to get the basics right. She is a quick learner and also
receptive to feedback. The DU girls, who play basketball, would
play a game or two while we weren't shooting."
Mohit also confirmed that special women coaches from NBA flew
down from the US to train Shraddha Kapoor. "International coach
Natalia Andre and her team were always present on set to help her," he said.
