After author Chetan Bhagat is not only known for his bestsellers like Five Point Someone, 3 Mistakes of My Life, One Night @ the Call Center and 2 States, but is also known for his books being adapted into films. However, now the author decided to take a step forward as a writer, and get into the realm of script-writing himself.

News is that he will be writing the script for Salman Khan’s film Kick and the author himself confirmed this news via Twitter. He tweeted, “ Happy to share with you that I’ll be writing the screenplay of Kick starring Salman Khan and directed by Sajid Nadiadwala.

” The basic premise of the story would be adapted from the Telugu film of the same title. He further added, “Will be adapting Kick from original Telugu superhit, with fair amount of changes as well.

Huge expectations, need all ur support! Thanks!” The writer also shared the storyline of the film on the microblogging site. “Kick is a about a guy who lives life only for his kicks, a powerful concept and a perfect recipe for a Salman- Nadiadwala blockbuster,” shared Bhagat. This is not the first time that a Salman Khan-Chetan Bhagat combination will be seen.

The actor was earlier seen in the movie Hello, which was adapted from Bhagat’s book One Night @ the Call Center. “Have known both Salman and Sajid Nadiadwala for a while and been wanting to work with them.  Couldn’t have asked for a better screenplay debut,” Bhagat added.

The author further said that he wants to reach out to the masses. “Many writers upgrade, get agents in London. I want to reach out to the masses. The day I reach Indian farmers I’ll consider myself a true Indian writer,” Bhagat concluded.
