After ‘Two States’, another Chetan Bhagat book is being turned into a film. His 2014 publish, ‘Half Girlfiend’ by popular production house Balaji Motion Pictures starring Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
While we’re all looking forward to the reel life execution of this novel, the making of the movie has hit a roadblock. The kind of roadblock that is going to make things tough for entire film’s cast and crew! Our khabri keeda told us that Balaji Motion Pictures is facing a major hindrance due to the production house’s financial status.
The ‘Half Girlfriend’ budgets are facing so much of a major setback that Arjun Kapoor, the lead actor and Mohit Suri (director) are facing a major pay-cut! And it doesn’t just stop there – our keeda also told us how the food on the set is being compromised upon due to the budget cut. The film was also set to shoot certain scenes of the film abroad – but due to the money gods not being in full favour of Balaji Motion Pictures, that too was cancelled.
Many in the film industry have claimed that Balaji Telefilms might decide to take their focus off movies and give all attention to television. The reason being setbacks with their films like ‘Great Grand Masti’ and ‘Kya Super Cool Hain Hum 3’ and a legal issue in regard with ‘Udta Punjab’.
We wish Ekta Kapoor and the other producers of the film all the best!
