walked into the room for the interview little could we judge that once they were just two regular co-stars who met on the sets of the Mohit Suri directorial and their friendship came through along with their onscreen characters of Madhav Jha and Riya Somani “Shraddha and I had this very basic social acquaintance We get along with each other socially but there is no bond Somewhere Madhav and Ria helped develop a bond in the course of the film” Arjun explains Also read |Half Girlfriend director Mohit Suri: Can’t deny Baahubali 2 effect but my film has a big heart if not big budget The sizzling chemistry between these two actors in the film adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s book by the same name might be the talk of the town but Arjun and Shraddha spilled the beans about their real life connect during a candid chat with indianexpresscom Here are the excerpts from the exclusive interview On Shraddha featuring in all Mohit Suri films (Aashiqui 2 Ek Villain and now Half Girlfriend) Shraddha: It’s really difficult to describe our relationship because we end up completing each other’s sentences The way he is as a person and the way he directs you have to see him on the set it’s incredible The kind of cinema that Mohit makes it touches people’s hearts and I feel very proud to be a part of it I would’ve been quite heartbroken if he hadn’t offered me this film He actually takes it very personally when offering me a character because I know he’ll offer me something that’s iconic and memorable I really look up to him just the way he is Shraddha Kapoor plays the character of Riya Somani a rich Delhi girl in Half Girlfriend On expectations from playing a character which is already a part of a book and known Arjun: You are trying to be honest to the material you are not really looking at what people have read You assume that it is a fresh perspective Also films appeal to a much larger audience Films are consumed at a more convenient level So we need to connect with people who don’t read books It’s happened with me in 2 States so I’m of firm belief that if you make a good film you are automatically doing justice to the written material Shraddha: Also there is an added responsibility because the writer has seen the character It was a very good thing that Chetan was there on the sets so if he had any kind of input to give Mohit would always take it You want the writer to be happy at the end of the day To get into the skin of his character of Madhav Jha Arjun Kapoor stayed in Bihar to understand the local mannerisms for Half Girlfriend On Madhav hailing from Bihar and Arjun’s arguments as to why he is acting in a particular way Arjun: For Madhav Jha we chose the Hindi speaking-side of Bihar So if anyone wants to have the conversation about it I have the answer as to why we chose this accent for Madhav We have kept his dialect which is dominated by Hindi because that’s the area he comes from It’s very naive on people’s part to find silly faults I’m not saying we are perfect but our intent is honest We don’t want to manipulate people by putting on an accent We have not made it caricaturist Half Girlfriend lead actors Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor during the film’s promotions in Delhi On the growth and graph Arjun and Shraddha’s characters show in the trailers Shraddha: Our characters go through a graph There is a time lapse and both our characters evolve with time Arjun: It is such an internal film for her actually and to put that out is the toughest part for an actor I was really excited to see her character It is a new dimension to her that people will get to see because I could sense that she was trying to find the internal Riya Somani On Arjun and Shraddha’s new found friendship during the course of Half Girlfriend Shraddha: I call him my friend now I feel actually really comfortable around him and I’m really fond of him I don’t think I’ve ever told him this What I love about him is that he does not put up any kind of a face and that’s something you find so rare these days Also it was terrific to see how hardworking he is I love that he is so eloquent he speaks so well he expresses himself really well He is not selfish about his work When he is on the sets he is looking at the larger picture and I think that’s really awesome Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor have been paired up for the first time in Half Girlfriend which has been adapted from Chetan Bhagat’s book by the same name Arjun: Subconsciously we shot the film linear So getting to know each other interacting with each other all that adds to the Madhav-Riya chemistry It’s an outdoor film and you start bonding This was important for doing those passionate scenes where we need to have that extra comfort So the growth of the characters comes also from the subconscious dynamics that we both got Today I can say we are on backslapping terms like I can complete her sentences she can speak on my behalf The camaraderie of two actors seems to have surely evolved along with their characters Madhav and Riya While they looked totally at ease with each other we hope that it transcends on the big screen too when Half Girlfriend hits the theaters this weekend For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Tavleen Singh | Published: February 14 2016 12:49 am BJP President Amit Shah and PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti Express Photo by Tashi Tobgyal New Delhi 240215 Top News If there is one Indian state in which we cannot afford to have a government in suspended animation it is the state of Jammu & Kashmir And the government there has been in exactly this state since Mufti Mohammad Sayeed died a month ago The reason for this indecision is his daughter and I hope that by the time you read this Mehbooba Mufti will have made up her mind It should be easy to do She is a political heiress in the fine Indian tradition of democratic feudalism so if she does not wish to run the government she inherited from Daddy she can appoint someone who does I can think of at least two people in her party who would make excellent chief ministers and there must be able candidates in the Bharatiya Janata Party as well What we cannot abide much longer is uncertainty or this ludicrous talk of ‘CBMs’ Confidence building measures are used to lessen hostilities between countries not between provinces in the same country If Mehbooba thinks this kind of talk will improve her image with those of secessionist proclivities she is playing a dangerous game She knows that there is not the faintest chance that Kashmir will one day become an independent country and she needs to come up with a CBM of her own by making this clear Or she needs to be declared unfit to be chief minister Having said this may I say that although she is behaving very badly she has reason to be angry with Delhi for having delayed flood relief for so long that by the time the ‘package’ arrived it was irrelevant Had it gone in the immediate wake of the floods that ravaged the Valley in September 2014 not only would desperate people have benefited but so would the Prime Minister’s image Having spent some time last year wandering about Srinagar’s worst affected areas I can report that ordinary Kashmiris had hoped that Narendra Modi would use his vaunted skills at governance to bring real relief to people who were left homeless and forsaken when the waters of the Jhelum receded This did not happen and nobody seems to know why What we do know is that it did serious damage to the Prime Minister’s personal image This is unfortunate because when the Bharatiya Janata Party became part of a Kashmir government (for the first time in history) there was real hope that a lasting solution to our domestic Kashmir problem was possible Personally I believe that Jammu and Ladakh have problems that are so completely different to those of the Kashmir Valley that it could be time to detach them into separate entities But that is another story and this is not the time to discuss it At the moment what should be discussed at the highest levels of political authority is how to revive the government that has been in suspended animation for weeks It is silly to talk about ‘CBMs’ when there is not even a chief minister to talk to While I was writing this piece I turned on the news and happened to stumble upon General Pervez Musharraf’s interview to India Today The General was as filled with belligerence and bluster as when he used to be a military ruler and president and what struck me was the number of times he mentioned Kashmir as the ‘core issue’ He dismissed Rahul Kanwal’s evidence of Pakistani involvement in 26/11 and Pathankot as ‘hysteria and hype’ and said such attacks would continue until the core issue of Kashmir was not solved The reason why Musharraf’s own ‘hysteria’ cannot be dismissed as the ranting of a has-been is because he reflects what the Pakistani army continues to think today So if we are going to renew the process of dialogue then we need to make it clear at the outset that we have no intention of discussing Kashmir It is not Pakistan’s problem it is ours but we can only say this if we manage to solve the domestic side of this problem A solution is not hard to find if the Prime Minister makes it clear that he has a clear new policy There are those who advise him to do what Atal Bihari Vajpayee did but this is pointless advice because that was another time and the problem was different Today there is a weariness with the movement for ‘azaadi’ that there was not then and for the first time ever it is possible to meet more Kashmiris who talk of economic and development issues rather than political and philosophical ones It is true that Mehbooba’s current intransigence and absurd demands are muddying the waters but if she is not prepared to play her role in so historic a moment
