Bollywood bug has indeed bitten Chetan Bhagat. A novelist who has been delivering one best seller after another and has been seeing a good chunk of his work being translated into films, Chetan has been enjoying a dream run while also being the most recognisable 'non-filmy' name amongst Bollywood aficionados. However, all may soon change, and that too for further good, with him coming on board for none less than the Salman Khan starrer KICK.


"Entrusted with the responsibility of writing the film, which is being touted to be the 'baap of all action' films, Chetan indeed has a task in hand to move away from his comfort zone of spinning real life characters and play larger-than-life card for millions of Salman fans out there who expect nothing less", says a close associate, "While he is neck deep into living his big Bollywood dream, this also means that for some good time to come, writing fiction novels is on a backburner. Chetan doesn't regret that though and feels that it is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and he is doing this all for the KICK of it."

When contacted, Chetan confirmed the developments.

"Well yes, my next novel would have to wait for a while now," says Chetan in his characteristic soft spoken tone, "I had to keep that as a conscious call though. In fact why just novels, I have put aside my motivational talks as well which I otherwise do on a regular basis. You only get one chance to work with the biggest star (Salman Khan) of the country in the biggest movie ever made (KICK) with a producer-director (Sajid Nadiadwala) who has a vision to make the biggest film ever. Even if that means that I have to keep my other priorities on the backburner so be it."

Guess this is what's giving him a KICK after all!
