Rumour Has It: Is Sushant Singh Rajput Katrina Kaif's Bhojpuri Love Interest?
Chetan Bhagat truly has as a knack for writing successful movie scripts. His 2 States did really well, and now that Half Girlfriend is being made into a film, Bollywood actors were all willing to pitch in for the parts of the lead actors. Among the contenders were Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone for the female lead as per a report in bollywoodlife.com. But the film finally went to Katrina Kaif.
A source close to Deepika confirmed this news and told a portal, “Deepika was approached to play the female lead or the Half Girlfriend. It is a coming of age romcom set in rural areas. As the girl comes from an elite, polished background both Deepika and Katrina suit the role.”
However, when it came to the Bhojpuri speaking lead actor in the film, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and Fitoor star Aditya Roy Kapur were considered for the role. But the current rumour is that Sushant Singh Rajput has bagged the project!
We hear that Mohit Suri will take the movie on floors in 2016, though we're still waiting for the makers to confirm if Sushant has bagged the film.
