About Half Girlfriend

Madhav Jha (Arjun Kapoor) from Simrao, Bihar, is admitted to St Stephens, New Delhi, under the sports category. The college prefers students who speak English fluently. Madhav is not on that list, but because he is an A-league basketball player, he gets in.

Both speak totally different languages, but they decide to be friends; in fact, Shraddha informs him that she will be his half-girlfriend; that is, dost se zyada, girlfriend se kum.

Shraddha, on the other hand, has a difficult existence at home. Her parents are often at odds. She finds solace in music and dreams that some day she will perform at a New York bar.

Arjun's mother, Rani Sahiba runs several schools in Bihar. She is a selfless worker and is sad that girls in the state of Bihar avoid school because of no amenities like toilets.
