Describing Half Girlfriend as a 'quintessential love story,' Arjun Kapoor told news agency PTI that certain relationships cannot be categorized as 'mere boyfriend-girlfriend relationship'.

Half Girlfriend is based on Chetan Bhagat's novel of the same name.

In Half Girlfriend, Arjun Kapoor will be seen portraying the role of Madhav Jha, a man who hails from Bihar. Speaking about his character in the film, Arjun Kapoor told PTI that shooting for the film was an 'eye-opener.'

"We somehow realise there is a much bigger India out there. It is an enriching and very humanising experience for me, a boy who grew up in a big city," PTI quoted Arjun Kapoor as saying.

Arjun Kapoor was last seen in R Balki's Ki and Ka, co-starring Kareena Kapoor.
