New Delhi: Author Chetan Bhagat's ‘half girlfriend' has been in news much before its release for being adapted into a film. Speculations were made as in who will play the role of the lead characters – Madhav, Riya, Rohan and Rani Sahiba?
Since Alia Bhatt has earlier given an award winning performance in 2 States (Chetan Bhagat's another book turned in to a film), so Alia Bhatt became the right choice for the film. In just few days, another name popped up, it was ‘Heropanti' actress Kirti Sanon.
But after reading the book, we have zeroed-in on a few names that are just apt for playing the lead roles.
Madhav Jha - Our hero he's crass and rustic but tall and handsome and of course a prince at the same time, only Arjun Kapoor in the current lot can justify this role. As he is tall, handsome and has done movies like Ishqzaade, Gunday and upcoming Tevar, so he has a rustic touch in him, essential for the role.
Riya Somani – Our heroine, who else but leggy lass Deepika Padukone will suit for this role. If we go by the author's description, Riya is five feet, nine inches tall, plays basket ball, has a long neck, long arms, and legs has brown eyes and long hair. Our Dippy who's also tall and plays badminton is just perfect for this role as she matches the description given in the book with athletic body and sharp features.
Rohan – Rohan Chandek, who is Riya's husband in the story, should be played by Aditya Roy Kapoor. As this versatile actor has an elite personality and great acting skills. Aditya will be able to manage the role of London-based hotelier well.
Rani Sahiba – Nobody else but Ratna Pathak Shah can play the role of Rani Sahiba. Ratna who recently won hearts with her performance in Sonam Kapoor's Khoobsurat can very well play the role of an elegant lady, who may have not left with anything royal, but still carries the legacy forward.
