One of the most popular Indian writers of the present times, Chetan Bhagat, who is often credited to have introduced the genre of campus novels in India, announced on Friday the title of his next book, One Indian Girl.
Bhagat took to twitter to make the announcement which was accompanied with a link to a video teaser. “Happy to share that my next book is called ‘One Indian Girl’! The teaser is here!,” he tweeted.
Contrary to all his previous books, this has been written from the viewpoint of a woman.
The teaser, which can be viewed on YouTube, describes the book narrated by an Indian girl, Radhika, who is getting married in a fortnight.
“Hi, I’m Radhika Mehta and I’m getting married this week. I work in a top investment bank. Thank you for reading my crazy story. However, let me warn you. You may not like me too much. One, I make a lot of money. Two, I have an opinion on everything. Three, I have had sex before. Now, if I were a guy, you’d be cool with all this. Since I am a girl, these things don’t really make me too likeable, do they?” says the teaser.
The book, which can now be pre-ordered on Amazon, is set to hit stands on October 1.
Bhagat has previously authored seven books (five fiction and two non-fiction) and his last book, Half-Girlfriend is being adapted into a film of the same name starring Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.

Bhagat’s novels Five Point Someone, One Night @ the Call Center, The 3 Mistakes of My Life and 2 States: The Story of My Marriage have all been previously adapted into Bollywood movies.
