Shraddha Kapoor
Mohar Basu (MID-DAY; April 20, 2017)

The oppressive weather seems to be taking a toll on Mumbaikars, and celebrities are no exception. The latest to fall prey is Shraddha Kapoor, who was compelled to cancel media interviews as part of promotions for her upcoming release, Half Girlfriend, yesterday.

An onlooker says, “She is recovering from a nagging spell of cold and cough. On Tuesday, she had interviews with TV channels lined up. But when she reached the venue, everyone got concerned over how pale she looked. Post noon, she began feeling uneasy, but insisted on going ahead with her commitments. When Arjun (Kapoor, co-star) heard of this, he convinced her to call it a day.”

Yesterday, Arjun promoted the film solo at a suburban studio while his ‘half girlfriend’ Shraddha recuperated at home. The actress will join him today.

Shraddha tells mid- day, “Arjun practically forced me to go back home [on Tuesday] because I was feeling unwell. I had initially thought I would make it through the day, but he was right; I needed to rest it out.
It was a sweet gesture on his part."
