The film adapted on Chetan Bhagat’s Half Girlfriend has released this week and it stars Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles. While Arjun Kapoor plays a village simpleton Madhav Jha, Shraddha essays the role of an urbane, chic overachiever Riya Somani. The film revolves around the nearly there love story between the lead protagonists. So, the two are in a complicated space where the two are not committed to each other but do have a certain chemistry. So, it is a classic situation of being in a space where the two are ‘more than friends’ and ‘less than a couple’.
Well while this is a fictional plot, if we look around in Bollywood, there are many such couples who play hide and seek with the paparazzi but have yet not confirmed to their respective relationships. Maybe they are trapped in a space between being friends and a couple. Here are few such names.

Shraddha Kapoor-Farhan Akhtar
Now, there only have been rumours about Shraddha and Farhan being an item but the two never came out in the open about it. Despite all the pictures and hush-hush blind items about the two, both parties have always maintained that they are just friends and nothing more. There have also been reports of how Shraddha’s family is not pleased with her beau and how she made sure that he gets a legal divorce from his ex-wife Adhuna Bhabani, at the earliest. They are neither confirming to their link up nor are going the separate way.
Sushant Singh Rajput-Kriti Sanon
The grapevine was abuzz with an affair between Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon soon after they started shooting for Raabta. The rumours intensified after SSR broke up with his fiance and longtime girlfriend Ankita Lokhande, after being a couple of seven years. Sushant was quoted in a leading daily recently as he claimed that he is single and not ready to mingle at present. But then, there is no smoke without fire right? The two share a crackling chemistry and we think, they are in a classic Half-Girlfriend situation.
Salman Khan-Iulia Vantur
Salman Khan is the eternal bachelor of Bollywood with no immediate plans to settle down. He has been associated with a Romanian model/singer Iulia Vantur since a long time now. She too is a regular fixture at the Khan residence and has gained access to the inner circle of Salman’s family but the superstar has never confirmed to his relationship. Iulia too has always been very cryptic about her alleged beau. She has always maintained that they are really good friends but their pictures always tell a different story.
Athiya Shetty-Arjun Kapoor
Athiya Shetty and Arjun Kapoor would be seen together in Mubarakan as a couple but there is talk that something is brewing between them off screen too. They have kept a very low profile till now and so, we really are not sure about them being a couple. It is funny but just observe how the lead actors of Half Girlfriend (Arjun and Shraddha) are stuck in this situation in real life too!
