After the countrywide success of his first three novels, all having been adapted to the silver screen, best selling author Chetan Bhagat is now working full-time on a Chetan Bhagatfilm script.

Bhagat, whose fourth book Two States was released recently says his next project is a film script independent of his novels.

"I have a lot of fun while writing and I find that the more personal a story is, the more universal it becomes," says Bhagat, who is known for his simple man-on-the street style of writing.

Keen to be a screenplay writer, Bhagat gave up a lucrative investment banking career earlier this year to pursue his passion for writing.

Rajkumar Hirani directed Three idiots is based on Bhagat's first book 'Five point someone - what not to do at IIT' and will release in December this year.
