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 girl.
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.
