Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will team up for the first time in Mohit Suri’s “Half Girlfriend”an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name.
Now, even before Half Girlfriend releases this year, the team has created a new record. What’s it? Of the longest song ever in any Bollywood film!
We heard that composer Mithoon is making an 18-minute long song for the film – a romantic track featuring the lead pair.
According to the reports of Spotboye.com “Mithoon has an 18-minute-long song in the film which happens to be the theme of the movie. The song is written by Galliyan lyricist Manoj Muntashir. The song will be played at a crucial juncture of the film. The lyrics of the song are also extremely beautiful and Manojji had written these poems at a very early age. He had recited these poems at one of the concerts and director Mohit Suri heard them. Thus he approached Manoji and Mithoon and thought that they would make an amazing song for the film.”
This will break the previous record, held by Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor’s “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” which had recorded a 13 minute long song. But the catch was that a huge chunk of the song got chopped off in the film.
The film is based on Chetan’s namesake novel. This will be the second time Arjun will be a part of an adaptation based on Bhagat’s book. In 2014, he was seen in the film ‘2 States’ an adaptation of the book ‘2 States: The Story of My Marriage’.
Directed by Mohit Suri, “Half Girlfriend” is all set to release on May 19 this year.
