Bollywood producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra lost his cool at a press conference here Friday and asked a reporter to shut up after being questioned whether his hit 3 Idiots was lifted from author Chetan Bhagat's book Five Point Someone.
Asked whether the film, which has grossed over Rs.100 crore in the first four days, was 70 percent taken from the book as claimed by Bhagat, Chopra queried whether the journalist had seen the movie and read the book. The scribe said that while he had seen 3 Idiots, he had not read Five Point Someone. Chopra then got up and shouted: "Then you shut up. When you have not read the book, then how can you say that the movie is 70 percent of the book?". Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, 3 Idiots stars Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Kareena Kapoor.
