3 Idiots made the original Writer Stupid


This is a story about 3 Idiots (Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Rajkumar Hirani, Aamir Khan) making the original story writer (Chetan Bhagat) a stupid. This whole issue can be a very interesting subject for another story. I bet Chetan Bhagath will write his next novel based on this issue. The issue is the makers of the movie 3 Idiots have not provided a proper credit to it’s original writer Chetan Bhagath. Some people may ask how does it matter when everyone know it’s based on FPS. But the thing is it matters the most.

Chetan Bhagath in his blog post A BOOK, A FILM AND THE TRUTH shared his unhappiness over the issue. Till now I saw Raj Kumar Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Aamir khan as very creative and dignified people. But now I’ve to change my opinion. Bollywood showed how it will treat the creative and original writers. And they scream that majority of the movies are not doing well on the box office.

How will you rope in and encourage writers who can give good stories if you canned give them a proper credit that they really deserve? Chetan on the other hand is a popular writer and he published the book. Who ever watch the movie can easily associate 3 Idiots with Chetan’s Five Point Someone even without any name or credit published officially. But what about those writers who are nobody in the industry?

I just don’t understand what is a big deal in crediting Chetan as a original Writer or the film is based on his book. Nobody is going to kill or look down for doing so. Instead they would have been treated with love. But now they created a big mess over it and every one will look Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Raj Kumar and Aamir Khan down as villains who shoplifted somebody else's story to put their names.

Chetan has clarified that Aamir Khan has nothing to do with this issue. But Aamir have a black mark in his history while making of Taare Zamin Par. This issue will definitely a another black dot for his name. At least now he should take stage and resolve the issue as soon as possible.

If chethan decide not to allow his any stories to be made as a film it’s a big loss for the film industry and the people of this country. That too big people playing this kind of dirty game will show a wrong path for others.

Shame on you Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Shame on you Rajkumar Hirani, Shame on you Aamir Khan.
