Chetan Bhagat to assist Vishal Bharadwaj in 2 States

MUMBAI: Chetan Bhagat will assist Vishal Bharadwaj in Sajid Nadiadwala‘s soon to roll adaptation of his novel ‘2 States‘.

Nadiadwala, who bought the filming rights of the novel, had recently roped in Bharadwaj to direct the film.

This means that apart from collaborating with Bhardwaj to write the screenplay of the film adaptation, Bhagat will also assist him to learn the ropes of film direction.

Says the author "Vishal is a very gifted filmmaker. I would definitely like to learn direction from him."

2 States is the story of a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamil girl while pursuing his MBA at IIM Ahmedabad. As the two belong to extreme cultures (North - South) of India, what follows is tension and drama with happily married ending.

On the other hand, Bharadwaj would be more than happy to take on Bhagat as an apprentice while shooting for the film. Litterateurs rarely cross over to making films, but Bharadwaj has always been interested in literature.

Meanwhile, Bhagat has been actively involved with the screenplay of two films adapted from his own novels Hello (from One Night At The Call Centre) and Abhishek Kapoor‘s adaptation of ‘The 3 Mistakes Of My Life,‘ though not much progress has been made with Kapoor‘s adaptation.

Nadiadwala, meanwhile, approached Shah Rukh Khan with the script, after which Khan has already expressed interest to work in the Bharadwaj-helmed film.
