VIDHU VINOD CHOPRA
The spat between author Chetan Bhagat and the makers of the film 3 IDIOTS is taking a toll on the producers. This became apparent when Vidhu Vinod Chopra lost his cool while answering the questions about Chetan Bhagat's claim that the filmmaker has not given him due credit.
The media gathered was in for a rude shock when Vidhu Vinod Chopra screamed at one of the reporters and told him to "shut up". It was Aamir Khan who saved the situation and took the microphone away from Vidhu Vinod Chopra in order to calm him down.
Though, 3 IDIOTS has raked in big moolah at the box office, the current controversy surrounding the filmmakers and the famed author has shifted the focus in a different direction for the moment.
