Half Girlfriend’s ‘Baarish’ To Recreate Aashiqui 2’s Rainy Romantic Scene

Prachi Nagar


The trailer which was released yesterday has already stirred up an amazing response by receiving 10 million views in less than 24 hours. It trended across social media properties including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. While the trailer continues to win hearts, the first song “Baarish” which is released is expected to have a similar effect. ‘Baarish’ is certainly one of the most anticipated romantic songs from the film especially after two posters which had the lead pair enjoying in the rains garnered great response. Sung by Ash King and Shashwat Tirupati, the breathtaking rain song will instantly connect with the romantics. With the scorching heat this summer, the makers of Half Girlfriend had decided to pleasantly surprise their audience, following the phenomenal response received on the trailer.

Half Girlfriend has managed to give its viewers a hummable number, and as Arjun had said earlier, “Baarish” helps in the progression of its story. However, it clearly showcases the class difference between Madhav Jha (played by Arjun) and Riya Somani (played by Shraddha). “Baarish” depicts the college crush of Madhav, who is drooling over Riya, a high-society student of St. Stephen’s, but she is unaware about his love and does not care about this boy who is lurking around her.
