It seems that the controversy surrounding the script of ‘3 Idiots’ is not going to die down soon. Aamir Khan has been the main poster boy for the team. He is supporting Abhijat Joshi and criticizing Chetan Bhagat. He stated that Chetan Bhagat in the past said to Aamir that the movie was not related to his book but, "Now the film has become successful so he is trying to get some publicity. It's very unfortunate".
On the other hand, Mr. Bhagat wrote on his blog:
This has nothing to do with Mr. Aamir Khan – while the makers are fronting him to talk about the issue (as he has the credibility), this is not about him at all. I am a big fan of Aamir and he has made my story reach people. However, he was told by the makers not to read the book, and he hasn’t. Thus, he cannot comment on the issue in a meaningful manner. The media should stop questioning him. When I met him, both of us were told that the movie is original and not the book. He was asked not to read the book – and I wasn’t shown the script. Go figure.
So, now it seems that Aamir Khan and Chetan Bhagat are just saying totally the opposite thing about Aamir’s not reading Five Point Someone. Anyway, I think that Aamir should read the book and then talk to the journalists about this issue. Otherwise, he is really lacking credibility whether the allegations of Chetan Bhagat is true or not.
