A Twitter user tried to troll Chetan Bhagat, however, the author hit back at him with a savage reply on the microblogging site.
Narrating an incident, the user said that he was on his way to the Jaipur Literature Festival. While he was sitting in the auto-rickshaw, the driver told him that he was also headed to the same destination. The user was surprised to know that the driver also reads. He asked the driver his favorite author, to which the driver replied 'Chetan Bhagat'.
Mocking the author, the user wrote, that the driver alone went to the festival while he traveled back to Mumbai.The user wrote, "Me: Bhaiya diggi palace chaloge?Autowala: Han han baitho, mai bhi wahi jaa raha huMe: Arey wah, aap bhi read karte ho?Autowala: Aur nahi toh kyaMe: Badhia hai. Achha, fav author kaun hai?Autowala: Chetan Bhagat*iske baad wo akela gaya #JLF. I came back to Mumbai*"
Bhagat gave a savage reply to the Twitter user who tried to troll him. He said that he is proud to be the one who made auto drivers in India read books."This tweet is meant to mock me and the auto driver, but I'm proud to be the one who made auto drivers in India read books. Even more proud of that driver who reads and goes to litfests.Without knowing his circumstances, to judge him like that speaks more about u than anything else," Chetan Bhagat wrote.
Chetan Bhagat is one of the few authors in India whose almost all the books are bestsellers, despite of the tremendous amount of criticism he faces. Earlier, Chetan Bhagat was trolled by netizens after he made a mistake by calling Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), a college. A user said, "JNU is not a college and you are not an author."
