Chetan Bhagat might have been marginalised by Raj Kumar Hirani and
Vidhu Vinod Chopra denying him due credit for their blockbuster
movie 3 Idiots. But, there has been a positive side for India's
most loved author. His book Five Point Someone is selling like hot
cakes all across the country. If leading retailers are to be
believed the sale of his book on IIT life has shot up by almost 30
percent. This jump is even more in cities like Bangalore and Pune
with a sizeable youth population.
Some major retailers in these cities have run out of stock for
Five Point Someone. Not only that his other books One Night @ The
Call Centre, The 3 Mistakes of My Life and the recent 2 States have
also seen jump in sales since the controversy started. In his
latest blog Chetan Bhagat has now expressed the desire to move on
and walk the middle path. This after Raj Kumar Hirani and Vidhu
Vinod Chopra had threatened him with legal action.
