I agree with Chetan...60-70% of d movie is from d book....Amir has no right 2 speak against him without reading d book...d book is a best seller...d truth will b out...d story belongs 2 chetan completely...some changes r there...n d screenplay is different but chetan deserved more credits for d story then Abhijat joshi....d movie is very good...but d idea is taken from 5 point someone...n d producers of d movie should have d courage 2 admit it...

I would say things would have been different had it not been an Aamir Khan film!!!!No one else gets any credit in an Aamir Khan film!!!!

Chetan Bhagat is the writer of bestseller novels!!!He doesn't need to do these things for publicity!!!!

Anyone who has seen Harry Potter series knows that the credit for story and screenplay are separate!!!!!

I don't understand why Amir and Hirani are trying to put this guy down by sdaying, he is hungary for publicity but Amir Khan should know that if story is week, no matter how good director or actors are, movie flops. We all saw," Sawariya" last year, it was short story and it failed to fit in 3 hours movie.
If Chetan Bhagat's novel was not there, then, I don't thing, Abhijit was able to write same story and funny dilogues.

How can they say "you are just a writer. You don't realise how big we are"??? If Chetan hadn't written the book the film story would never have been made!!
No one is never just a writer!!

Sorry to say chetan is just fighting a lost case here..his biggest mistake was to sign that contract where it was clearly mentioned that he will b credited in rolling credits and not in the his case is so weak that even though he is right,he cannot file a case in court because of that contract which he himself signed..
