5 TIPS TO BECOME CHETAN BHAGAT.....OR SOMEONE LIKE CHETAN BHAGAT
What makes Chetan bhagat popular ?
1.Because he is the writer of the masses….just like Directors like Rohit shetty make massy films for the aam janta…he writes massy books which caters to a large number of audience.
2. His stories are simple with less complications and he glorifies one or two cities in every book and adds the local flavor of those cities in his book. For eg. In 3 mistakes of my life, he glorified ahmedabad and in two states, he spoke about Punjab and Chennai, in Revolution 2020 he glorified benaras.
3. His book will also contain a romantic angle like we have in bollywood films and to spice up the romance, he garnishes Romance with some sex.
4. His vocabulary is simple and his English is understandable to almost everyone who just have surface knowledge of English. That’s why his novels are very much preferable to beginners.
5. His book will contain a lot of drama, something that we Indians like a lot.
6. And also his book does have some humour too.
Now that he is a brand , even if someone writes crap, his book would still sell and go on to become a bestseller……
