Chetan Bhagat vs 3 Idiots – Truth Lies on Story Credits

3idiots Chetan BhagatIam sure if you are a Bollywood Fan or else a Twitter User you would come through the current issue which is going on between one of India’s Best Book Writer – Chetan Bhagat & the movie 3 idiots. The issue currently is that Chetan Bhagat claims that he has not been given credit for the story even though they have copied most of the stuff from his book – 5 Point Someone. While on the other hand the movie producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra is not ready to reply to any of this and pushes Aamir Khan between this. Iam sure these Actors don’t get any time to read books and still they reply to the press, and what Aamir said was kind of joke. He claims that since the movie has got hit – he does expect people looking for publicity[wtf].

I would recommend all my blog viewers to first view the following video by Star News which has posted a comparison of the movie to the small events in the book. It clearly shows that there are multiple situations and similar scenes which were written in the book. Since the movie team knew that they were copying the stuff and they didn’t want any legal trouble, they added the name of Chetan Bhagat at a place which is not normally visible to anyone and something which people would avoid to read. Even if i was in the place of Chetan Bhagat i would feel that this is seriously a bad issue and if Aamir Khan is a true actor he would have just kept himself away from this issue instead of talking crap without knowing everything on this situation.

Well since the Actors are Actors and they are meant to Act, something like Lawyers who by hook or crook just have a target to win the case, Aamir is also acting on the lines the movie producer has given him.

Lets assume that Chetan Bhagat is looking for publicity based on the lines of Aamir Khan, but after watching the above video if you were the writer of a book whose content has been filmed and if you accused wrongly, you would also do the same thing. This is because media would just support Aamir Khan or the movie team because of the hit and their status and would just ignore a writer who have rarely come to the main stream media.

Unless someone would First Read the Book, then watch the Movie and then search for the credits, they wont understand how bad it hurts when your hard work is not paid off. Till now i didn’t find any single place where Chetan Bhagat has asked for any Monetary Compensation but has expected a credit wherever possible which can give him a better name and fame and buzz all over. But when the other party accuses wrongly its real bad and everyone should raise a hand on this and support the right party in my case Chetan Bhagat.

    I can’t believe the way Vidhu, Aamir and Abhijeet are trying to justify something unjustifiable. They should die out of shame before claiming that this story is theirs. You can buy right for a book but you can’t put your name as author..come on ! This way anybody who has a lot of money can buy right for a book and put his name as author. It’s still not late for them to correct their mistake. However, they can’t fool ‘janta’, “Janta sub jaanti hai”.

    Well said.

    Now I seriously doubt the originality of the Munnabhai series. They might have done some double-dealings which went unnoticed.

    Mr. Abhijat – You are a writer, how could you to do this to someone belonging to your own fraternity. Never had I heard of you denying, in public, Chetan’s claims. Are you under any kind of pressure? Might be. Because, there are people involved who pay you and pay you good. Now you have to decide what is important to you – money or someone like me(trust me there are a lot others) who started suspecting the originality of your master pieces.

    Mr. Aameer Khan – Though I am not particularly a big fan Mr. Shahrukh Khan, I believe he is much better a celebrity than you are.
    During all the time you performed cheap publicity stunts, he carried himself with great wisdom. You were once my role model. I don’t understand what had happened to you in the recent past that you are getting into all sorts of controversies. Were you such a person all the time, and we didn’t get to know of it because you are not media-friendly in your past days. We are people from academic background and we don’t desire money. You take all the money you earn out of it, we won’t complaint but credits, no. Based on what people comment on your aspiration for perfection, I seriously doubt you hadn’t read the book. Still when you say you haven’t, I trust you. Therefore I urge you to read the book first and then comment.

  3. Person who have read ‘Five point someone’ will understand by itself that 3 idiots storyline was copied from this book. There is no doubt about it. This book is one of the extremely famous book in India.

    amir is certainly stupid and wrong in commenting against chetan,if chetan feels ,he is not rewarded properly or given due credit,he has all the right to say it,and the film makers should have appologized instantly,instead of cheap gimmick they play, will only tarnish their image infront of their own fans.Because people who read and has read FPS are great fans of both chetan and his books,no need to describe any thing about its popularity among youth,even 3 idiots got its pre release publicity as an adaptation of FPS,and if the stupid film makers say it is not based on FPS ,i feel pity of these audacious people without any integrity.amir has definitely acquire a bad name infront of mature and true movie lovers.It is my resposibility to say it loud that we all the youth are with chetan bhagat in this issue for him to get justice for his intellectual wisdom.

  6. Amir Khan attitude is completely wrong towards this issue , how can he say ” has anybody heard of Chetan bhagat..and he is trying to gain publicity ” Why not Amir… every intelligent and young guy has heard of him.

    You are also know as people of India preach you as a great actor, all you need is to respect people work…you should have atleast appreciated Chetan’s work.

    We should not forget that Chetan Bhagats is the new face of India…Amir cannot be an IIT’an or an IIM Grad…He should have atleast appreciated someone original work which is a master piece.

  7. Well said Vinod…
