Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Half Girlfriend’ is all set to hit the theaters. The duo are at present promoting the film on all major platforms. Recently the makers of the film relaunched the book on which the film is based on. The book now has Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor on its cover.
Present on the occasion was author and producer Chetan Bhagat, Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and ‘Half Girlfriend’ director Mohit Suri. The director revealed that ‘Half Girlfriend’ is the first Indian film to be shot in the United Nations for free of cost.
Mohit Suri said, “When we had gone to New York and were hunting for locations to shoot, I randomly uttered if UN could give us the permission to shoot for our film, and when I went to them and said, ‘The character in my film works in United Nations with the Bill Gates Foundation to earn money to make bathrooms in his college in village, and this is the fundamental reason why girls don’t go to schools in rural areas,’ and that is why we got that location free.”
He further added,“We got to shoot in such a place where most of the people in the world do not enter and not even get security clearance.”
‘Half Girlfriend’ is slated to release on May 19.
