22nd April, 1974 is the day when a star author was born. It is India's biggest selling English language novelist Chetan Bhagat's birthday! During his young days, he wanted to become a chef. But the destiny has other plans for him. When he was in standard four, his first article (a four line joke) came in the school magazine. He was so glad to see his name there. Since that time, he has a vision to be a successful author!
Books by Chetan Bhagat
Chetan Bhagat's first book is a best seller which later turns into a block buster movie. The name of the book is "Five Point Someone" and the movie that got inspired from this book is "3 Idiots".
The second novel that comes from his pen is, "One night @ the call centre". This is again a best seller which inspires another movie called "Hello". Though it's a good movie, I enjoyed reading his book rather than watching this movie. That's the magic of his words. While reading you started visualizing things!
The other two novels are "The 3 mistakes of my life" and "2 States". It has been rumored that the talented director "Vishal Bharadwaz" and the Badshah of Bollywood "Shahrukh Khan" are working together on the screen version of his last novel "2 States" This is about the inter caste marriage.
