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 film script.books Updated: Oct 12, 2009 12:51 IST
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.
