A month after Mohit Suri announced the male lead in the upcoming Balaji production Half Girlfriend, protagonist Sushant Singh Rajput has walked out.

Speaking to reporters, the star confirmed this. "It's unfortunate. I was excited about working with Ekta again but the dates didn't work out. The team wanted the same dates as that of Dinno's film (Dinesh Vijan's untitled film) which I will be doing next. I had committed the dates long back and hence, had no option but to pull out of the project."

There has been a lot of speculation about the female lead for Half Girlfriend, with Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon supposedly in the running, but the makers haven't confirmed anything yet.
