Writer Chetan Bhagat set Twitter raging on Tuesday as he accused Bollywood producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra of “bullying him and almost driving him to suicide” over an argument associated to blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra produced the 2009 movie that had Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Sharman Joshi starring as titular ‘3 Idiots’. The blockbuster Chetan Bhagat claims was on his guide ‘Five Point Someone’
In a tweet concentrating on Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s spouse Anupama Chopra, who’s a movie critic, Chetan Bhagat wrote he was “bullied”, “denied credit for the storyline” and virtually “driven to suicide” by her husband.
Ma’am, when your husband publicly bullied me, shamelessly collected all the perfect story awards, tried denying me credit score for my story and drove me near suicide, and also you simply watched, the place was your discourse? https://t.co/CeVDT2oq47

The sparring started as Anupama reacted to Chetan Bhagat’s tweet urging critics to not “write rubbish” about late actor Sushant Rajput’s final movie. “Each time you think the discourse can’t get lower, it does!” she wrote.
To this, Bhagat responded: “Ma’am, when your husband publicly bullied me, shamelessly collected best story awards, tried denying me credit for my story and drove me close to suicide, and you just watched, where was your discourse?”
Each time you assume the discourse can’t get decrease, it does! https://t.co/yhkBUd8VSQ
