Half Girlfriend’s storyline revolves around a simple boy from Bihar, Madhav Jha (Arjun Kapoor) who gains admission in a much sought after college in Delhi owing to his prowess at basketball. His sports quota admission, though, doesn’t guarantee Madhav a fluency in English which makes him feel like an outcast. On campus, he befriends Riya Somani (Shraddha Kapoor), a typical Delhi girl who shares his passion for basketball. The two share a terrific bond and are often seen together where it becomes evident to onlookers that their bond has progressed beyond friendship. For the simpleton at heart, Madhav, the friendship seems like love and he proposes to Riya on her birthday.
