Ever since writer Chetan Bhagat has started writing for his next novel "Half Girlfriend", which will be made into a film, a string of names has cropped up for the female lead in its big screen adaptation.
Ekta Kapoor will produce the film, while Mohit Suri will direct it.
Alia Bhatt is one of the actresses who tops the list, but a source reveals Kriti Sanon too is being considered for the role.
Kriti Sanon, who made her debut in Telugu with Mahesh Babu's '1 Nenokkadine', later made her debut in Bollywood with the movie 'Heropanti', which is the remake of Allu Arjun's 'Parugu'.
"Ever since 'Heropanti' has been released, Kriti has been flooded with offers. Kriti is strongly being considered for the lead role in Half Girlfriend," said the source.
Bhagat is all set to launch the novel Oct 1 in the presence of Suri and Ekta.
