Mumbai: Chetan Bhagat`s novel `2 States` has been adapted into a film 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 here Monday at the launch of the new cover of `2 States.`

"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!`.
