After releasing two posters and motion posters, the makers of Half Girlfriend have released a character introduction video of Madhav Jha aka Arjun Kapoor.
Arjun Kapoor plays a Bihari guy, in the film, and is seen reading excerpts from the book ‘Half Girlfriend‘ of which, the film is an adaption. It was earlier reported that Arjun went to stay in Bihar for over 10 days before they began shooting for the film. Just so that he could get the dialect and mannerisms right, he interacted with the localities there.
And not just that, Arjun also hired a language coach to help him with the diction and also to understand how someone from Bihar, who is not very fluent in English, would speak it.
