Sunday, 19th July emblematically marked the re-birth of Italian Leonardo Da Vinci in Chetan Bhagat’s body. Ah! Don’t frown. Um, let me iron those confusion-driven wrinkles formed between your eyebrows. Well, what till date was well-known to us was about Chetan’s tapping fingers shaping into words and reaching us as a ‘novel’. But Nach Baliye 7 finale spotlighted Chetan’s tapping feet and shaking body causing us to watch agape.
Talents breathed in Leonardo, for what skill on the earth was not his’? Likewise this writer-turned-dancer too seems to have bred variety of to-be-yet-uncovered talents. Well, don’t know what’s in store but his dance was a big fiasco proving Remo D’Souza’s statement, “Anybody can dance” a far-fetched truth. Because not everybody can dance and so can’t Chetan Bhagat.
“I used to think that nothing could be as horrible as my novels but then I saw my dance performance and that myth was comprehensively broken. It is amazing how I keep outdoing myself. Salman Khan is my inspiration as his every movie is a hit regardless of script or a basic plot. I applied the same approach while writing novels and it worked. But now even Salman Bhai is getting critical acclaim for his latest release, so I also feel I should come up with something good. I would leave it to my fans to decide what my next adventure should be,” he said, before signing off.
Twitter’s salt addition to his injury

I wish I could not make mockery out of him, but he himself has not cared to care for his image. An eminent writer like him is expected to be sensible, a tad at least, but much to my dismay, Chetan Bhagat has really disappoited us. For not everybody can be Remo D’Souza and nor everybody can be Chetan Bhagat.
