As Mohit Suri’s ‘Half Girlfriend’ released, two things drew a lot of attention. Firstly, the ‘Myself from Village Area’ meme, and then its stereotypical portrayal of Biharis. While some were of the opinion that Arjun Kapoor’s character was nowhere even close to an actual Bihari, few others thought that it was just a fictional character that did not particularly refer to the entire populace.

A majority of the people thought the film showed the Bihari community in poor light, especially when a large number of IAS officers belong to the state.
