Why Arjun Kapoor’s Bihari act in Half Girlfriend is nowhere close to reality

Arjun Kapoor apparently went and stayed in Bihar for over a week to “prepare” for his role of a local lad, Madhav Jha, in his upcoming film Half Girlfriend, who is weak at speaking English. He claimed to have picked up the typical mannerisms and diction of people there, as part of gearing up for the movie. But, when the film’s first 43-second teaser arrived on Wednesday, it only left every Bihari, including me, disappointed… Disappointed to the hilt, for it only established the stereotypes we have been facing for decades, and even have to fight against, once we step out of our state.
“Ria ke saamne aate hi hum ekdum narbhasaa jaate hain……. Uu to hamari, kaa kahate hain, haaph girlphrend banna chahti hain. Par ik baat batao, ee haaph girlphriend hota kya hai…”
And all this while Arjun is reading Chetan Bhagat’s novel, IN HINDI!
Thus, all our hopes from the film are shattered!
