I dont agree with perfangel5655...why would he need publicity now? The book is already a Bestseller... lot of people have read the book and are still reading it. I have read the book and watched the movie and i too realized a lot of things are directly lifted from the book. So if Chetan Bhagat is asking for credit, he is not wrong.

i agree. 60-70% of the story has been lifted from d buk n he shuld b given credit for the story. @ shaina is rite. In hp series credit for screenplay and story r separate. n honestly speaking its impossible for any1 to get credit in a amir khan movie. amir, vidhu and hirani all of them r very egoistic n r reluctant to admit their mistake.

this guy is grossing me out. Before the movie he was totally fine with it. Now that the movie is successful he is trying to use the publicity. Using this to sell his books.
Shame on him! What a direct marketing. " I am just telling people to read my book..."

After watching the muvi twice....even b4 this issue was up.... I had noticed dem acknowledging Chetan for his story....I mean dey do clearly write.. based on the story of Chetan Bhagat's 5 point sum1. And yeah...the story had some direct lifts from the book....but there were a lot of changes that made the muvi dis much entertaining. Yeahhhh... I myself have gone thru the novel as well have chcked out the muvi....Chetan can in no way tale away all the credits from Joshi.....he indeed remade some parts of it......he made the novel a muvi. I am with Aamir and other....n never expected this kinda thing from a writer like Chetan. I am a great fan of his.....!!! So better things get solved at the earliest .

Keep crying. I thought you said on your blog that you were done commenting on this? Or was that another fib on your part? You didn't read a script - which you later said you did. You were promised something else in your contract - which we all now see you were not. It just keeps escalating.

I have the utmost respect for writers, because that's the field I'm in as well. But you need to STOP. Retain some form of dignity and credibility. STOP SPEAKING.
