Chetan Bhagat's novel 2 States has been adapted into a film by the same name starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, and the author now has plans to come out with a sequel to his story about the romantic journey of a culturally opposite couple.
"I really consider doing a sequel to 2 States but I am not doing it right now. I have never done a sequel to any of my books but I thought this one could make it," the 39-year-old said on Monday at the launch of the new cover of 2 States in Mumbai.
"I have the tagline for it 'Getting married was the easy part'," he added.
Bhagat wants to take out more pages of his life for his future books.
"I think I like to now do things out of my life. As a writer develops, it's better to do other fictional stories. But I haven't done anything on my banking days, I haven't done anything on my Bollywood days... fatherhood. So, there is a lot left," the author said.
"But I think it is difficult because you have to get used to the idea that your own life has been used to create a story which is now going to turn into a movie. It takes a lot out of you and it is not easy," he added.
The author's The 3 Mistakes Of My Life was also adapted into a film titled Kai Po Che!.
