Mumbai: Author Chetan Bhagat’s new novel is due for release this October and an excited Bhagat took to Twitter to announce his new book.

While some loved the prologue of his book, others found another reason to celebrate. Time for yet another round of Chetan Bhagat jokes! The novel revolves around a love story between Madhav, “a boy from Bihar with big dreams who falls in love with the beautiful Riya, a rich lass from Delhi”.


The video teaser posted online by Bhagat reads, “Madhav didn’t speak English well. Riya did. Madhav wanted a relationship. Riya didn’t. Riya just wanted friendship. Madhav didn’t. Riya suggested a compromise. She agreed to be his half-girlfriend.”

Abhishek Madan @abhishekmadan Madhav wanted a girlfriend. Riya wanted a friend. So she became his half-girlfriend... a.k.a friend. This is how women trick you Chetan.
