Chetan Bhagat is undoubtedly the social media's favourite controversy child.
He is an ace author who is loved by many. Some love him for his books and some others for his guts to speak what his heart says. He never misses a chance to spice things up and loves when he gets trolled.
Given below is an instance when Chetan Bhagat's statement earned him a one-way ticket to the troll land.
On Monday, Chetan Bhagat Twitted a picture of his newly released novel, One Indian Girl, resting on a ledge in the sunny and beautiful Mykonos island in Greece. He asked his fans to click more such pretty pictures of the book set against beautiful backdrops.
He has always been the punching bag of trolls and is looking down the barrel again.
His fans reacted to this picture immediately. They were angry, as he was trolled for no reason.
These pictures got viral in no time. Open twitter or facebook, all you can see are the Chetan Bhagat trolls.
He did react to some trolls but when he saw that there was no stopping to it, he decided to be silent.
Was this the beautiful background he asked for? I really don't think so.
Was his tweet blown out of proportion? I think so.
Never in his wildest dream would Chetan Bhagat have thought that his valuables can be used in this way too.
The trollers made fun of him and said that the novel is better suited in the dustbin.
He was, he is and will always be the social media king.
Some say that this act was done by Chetan Bhagat's fans, to make it gain publicity and make the novel the talking topic for the day.
Chetan Bhagat is definitely an attention seeker and knows exactly how to be in the headlines. You might not love his books but you cannot doubt his sense of humor.
