What are the 3 mistakes of Chetan Bhagat’s life?
The bestselling author is yearning for acceptance from the elite literary fraternity, observes Cineswami
It is hard for us literate people to feel sorry for Chetan Bhagat. Remember him? The guy who wrote a book called Five Point Someone that was a takeoff point for the phenomenally successful film 3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan? He also wrote (we use the term loosely) One Night @ The Call Center that the execrable Salman Khan film Hello was based on. The 3 Mistakes of My Life is currently being made by Rock On!! director Abhishek Kapoor as Kai Po Che and a film adaptation of Bhagat’s 2 States is also in the works. Click here to read more
