Reportedly Mohit Suri has roped in Sushant Singh Rajput for his next which is touted to be the Bollywood adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's popular novel 'Half Girlfriend'.
The 'Kai Po Che' actor had even auditioned for his role of Madhav. Mohit was quite keen on getting Katrina Kaif on board to play the female lead. However now as per a 9XE report, it is Kriti Sanon who has bagged the coveted role. Rumours suggest that Katrina couldn't be a part of this film due to some issues.
'Half Girlfriend' is a coming-of-age romcom set in rural Bihar, Patna, New York and New Delhi and revolves around a Bhojpuri-speaking Bihari boy and a rich, beautiful Delhi girl whom he’s fallen in love with. The girl agrees to be his ‘Half Girlfriend’, but later, gets married and divorced. How they finally come together in New York and get married is what forms the crux of the story.
The film is expected to go on floors early next year and will be jointly produced by Ekta Kapoor and Chetan Bhagat. Meanwhile Kriti will be next seen in Rohit Shetty's 'Dilwale'.
