The on-going feud between writer Chetan Bhagat and the producer of 3 IDIOTS, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and actor Aamir Khan, took a new turn with a third name being dragged into the battle.

After having publicly accepted that he had not read the book, FIVE POINT SOMEONE, on which the screenplay of 3 IDIOTS is said to be loosely based, Aamir went on to blast the writer for trying to take mileage from the success of the film. However, Aamir Khan has now shifted stands, which is quite uncharacteristic of the actor.

At the recent press conference in Indore, while replying to a question (regarding the dispute) from the fourth estate, Aamir replied that the baton has been handed over to Raju Hirani, and it is him who has been assigned the task of replying to all the allegations put forth by Chetan Bhagat. He also added that he did not wish to speak more on the subject and apologized to the media regarding the ugly incident between Vidhu Vinod Chopra and a reporter, last weekend.

Well, here's hoping that the suave, sophisticated and soft spoken director will handle things better, much in the same way that he has handled all his films.
