Chetan Bhagat surprises Madhura Sreedhar

Writer Chetan Bhagat is undeniably a youth icon in India and his books have created a major impact on the young generation. It looks like his attention seems to have been captured by a Telugu film. This is ‘Backbench Student’ under direction by Madhura Sreedhar. Incidentally, both these men have a history.

Madhura Sreedhar- Chetan Bhagat equation started during the time of Sreedhar’s last venture ‘It’s My Love Story’. That time the film posters came showing its hero Arvind Krishna reading Bhagat’s book ‘The 3 Mistakes Of My Life’. Now posters came with the hero Mahat Raghavendra holding Bhagat’s latest book ‘What Young India Wants’.

Many thought there would be a link between ‘The 3 Mistakes Of My Life’ and ‘IMLS’ but nothing of that sort happened. Bhagat was invited for ‘IMLS’ premiere and he came. Now ‘Backbench Student’ is coming and some link is expected between the film and Bhagat’s book. But some are saying nothing of that sort is happening.

Whatever it may be the latest update is that Bhagat has tweeted about ‘Backbench Student’ in his twitter.

He wrote: "Film poster of upcoming Telugu film "Backbench Student," by Madhura Sreedhar. Hmm, which book is the hero reading? :)"

Maybe he might come for the premiere if invited. The Tollywood gossip is that both will join hands and work together. Another add-on is that Madhura Sreedhar has plans of going to Bollywood. Let us see what’s in store after ‘Backbench Student’ hits the screens.
