Once again, Chetan Bhagat is going to be teamed with Disney UTV, this time for the screen adaptation of his latest bestseller Revolution 2020, to be directed by Raj Kumar Gupta (man behind Aamir and No One Killed Jessica). The novel, which revolves around the lives of childhood friends — Gopal, Raghav and Aarti — will be made into a drama film with strong roles for the three main leads.
It is an intense love story set against the backdrop of corruption in the education sector, which affects millions across the country.
Raj Kumar Gupta said that When he read the novel, he was quite moved. Revolution 2020 is a very simple and heartfelt story about being young, being confused, being in love, getting corrupt... He is now looking forward to write and direct this book for the silver screen.
Chetan Bhagat had shared the draft of his book with Siddharth Roy Kapoor (Managing Director, Studios, Disney UTV) and Raj Kumar Gupta even before it was published and they instantly reacted to its cinematic potential. It has an incredibly well-graphed storyline and the issues it deals with are those that today's youth will instantly relate to and identify with.
The screenplay of the film is currently underway and is expected to go on floors mid-2014.
~~..Now wait to see Gopal, Aarti and Raghav brought to life..~~
