Half Girlfriend would have been the actor’s second film on a Chetan Bhagat novel after his debut film Kai Po Che but in 2015 itself the late actor in an interview with Mumbai Mirror had confirmed that he had to back out of Half Girlfriend due to date issues.
He had said, “It's unfortunate. I was excited about working with Ekta (Kapoor) again but the dates didn't work out. The team wanted the same dates as that of Dinu's (Dinesh Vijan) film, which I'm doing next. Since I had committed dates for it long ago, I didn't have an option but to pull out of Mohit's project.”
The movie Sushant walked out on half Girlfriend for was Raabta .
It was after Sushant’s exit that Arjun Kapoor was approached who had previously also starred in a Chetan Bhagat story, 2 States and the makers proceed with the film.
