His books have found visual translation in Hindi movies, but author Chetan Bhagat remains unstirred by the glitz and glamour of the tinsel town and says he won't change his style of writing to suit Bollywood's sensibilities.
It has been one year since the romantic film '2 States' released. The film based on Chetan Bhagat's eponymous book did well at the box office and the lead pair Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor were liked by many. The chemistry between the actors was palpable and was well appreciated.
Romantic comedy '2 States' starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor is leading the nominations list of the 60th Filmfare Awards with seven nods, closely followed by Vishal Bhardwaj's Shakespearean tragedy 'Haider'.
Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor is slowly gaining his foot in the industry. If reports published in a leading daily are anything to go by, then he might soon be seen in yet another screen adaptation of author Chetan Bhagat`s novel.
Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt-starrer `2 States` is in its second week and it has raked in about Rs.70 crore at the domestic box office. Close on its heels is `Revolver Rani`, which came out this weekend.
Abhishek Varman`s debut directorial `2 States` managed to collect Rs.38.06 crore in its opening weekend. The audience is loving it for its slice-of-life portrayal of two lovers from different states of the country.
