As you might be aware, Chetan Bhagat is turning producer with his upcoming film, Half Girlfriend (based on his own novel with the same name). Directed by Mohit Suri, the film stars Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor in the lead.
There's no doubt about the fact that he's one of the most popular Indian writers. But every now and then, he seems to be surrounded by controversies.
Recently, he was accused for plagiarising someone's work in his latest book One Indian Girl. Also, Delhi University’s decision to include his book, Five Point Someone in the syllabus of general elective course offered to second-year students under the Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) board, didn't go down well his critics.
Talking about the controversies, he said, "I think I'm the clickbait headline. Jaise woh hota hai na Modi ke baare mein kuch likh do to click milna hi hai. Uspe kuch negative likh do. Also because the movie (Half Girlfriend) is coming."
