Arjun's scenes playing basketball have been the first to have been released in the film's promo. His Twitter profile picture also sees him with the ball. The basketball scenes have reportedly been shot at Delhi's Shri Ram College of Commerce.
"There is that Bihar style of talking of the character and I didn't want it to look caricaturish. His English is not up to the mark and though he knows it, he hesitates to speak it because he is from Bihar. He is told that you are from Bihar and your English is poor what will you be able to do in life. Just because he can't speak in English doesn't mean he is not intelligent," Arjun added.
"It's a big issue in India that people judge you on the basis of your English. So I wanted to play the character as genuinely as possible." "Half Girlfriend", also starring Shraddha Kapoor, is slated to release next year.
