After "Tevar" bombed at the box-office, Arjun Kapoor went into some sort of hibernation. But he's back in the scene with an interesting "Ki and Ka" photo shoot and possibly another film.

According to a DNA report, the young star will be seen romancing Shraddha Kapoor in "Half Girlfriend". The speculations around this film are endless and this too may be one, as official announcements are yet to be made.

Earlier, A-listers such as Deepika Padukone, Kriti Sanon and Katrina Kaif were associated with the film but all had to let go of the project for reasons best known to them. Also, Sushant Singh Rajput, Shahid Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor were once strong contenders for the role.

Apparently, Shahid was this close to being a part of the film when the "Shaandaar" debacle happened, and the makers immediately dropped the idea of casting the charming star. The team then walked to Sushant but he had already given his dates to Dinesh Vijan.

Adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's book of the same name, the film is based on the story of an affluent Delhi girl and a Bihari boy, and their love for each other.

In other news, Arjun and Kareena Kapoor Khan's mushy first-look pictures from the R Balki directorial have been received well by the industry and the actors' fans. The film will see the actor play a house-husband supporting a very ambitious career woman. Slated for a 1 April release, it also stars Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan in cameo appearances.
