Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif are reportedly being considered for the lead role in Mohit Suri's upcoming movie "Half Girlfriend".

The movie will be based on the book of the same name written by Chetan Bhagat. But, Mohit Suri is  is reportedly now in a dilemma with regard to the female lead for the film.

"Deepika was approached to play the female lead or the 'half girlfriend'. As the girl comes from an elite, polished background, both Deepika and Katrina suit the role. Deepika has an edge in many ways- firstly, in terms of performance. Also, the character Riya Somani is from Delhi and Katrina still looks more international than Deepika. Mohit is in talks with Katrina about the role in case Deepika doesn't work out," DNA quoted a source as saying.

However, the report also quoted the "Bajirao Mastani" actress saying that she has not signed any movie as of now and will be able to reveal anything only after the magnum opus is completed.

Talking about the story of "Half Girlfriend", the source added, "It is a coming-of-age romcom set in rural Bihar, Patna, New York and New Delhi and revolves around a Bhojpuir-speaking Bihari boy and a rich, beautiful Delhi girl, with whom he falls in love. The girl agrees to be his 'half girlfriend', but later gets married and divorced. How they finally come together in New York and get married is what the story is about."

It was learnt that Varun Dhawan was being considered for the lead actor's role in "Half Girlfriend", but he reportedly said "no" to the project due to lack of dates. There has not been any confirmed report with regard to the film's cast as yet.
