R Madhavan says “3 idiots better than book” Chetan Bhagat replies
It started when Chetan Bhagat replied to a tweet from Netflix India which asked people to choose between books and movies. Chetan Bhagat replied to the tweet and said “My books, and the movies based on them,” and that led Madhavan to say that he preferred movies over books. Chetan Bhagat replied: “Have you ever heard anyone ever say the movie is better than the book?” To this, Madhavan shot back: “YES! 3 Idiots.” You’re flaunting 3 Idiots to ME?” Chetan Bhagat then asked Madhavan. “Don’t try to preach to the choir, maybe you should go actually read my books.” On that R Madhavan replied, “if you love books so much, why are you in my new show? Decoupled streaming only on Netflix” . The banter continues where Chetan Bhagat replies,“Maybe it’s just me, I prefer Pulitzer over a pan masala branded award show” R Madhavan says,“Well I prefer the 300 crore club over bestsellers.” R Madhavan also tweets “I’m not known just as Farhan. I’m also known as Manu from Tanu Weds Manu, Kartikh from Alaipayuthey, and my favourite, Maddy kyunki mein rehta hoon sab ke dil mein.” In the end Madhavan confirms that it’s just a publicity stunt for his upcoming ‘Decoupled’. Decoupled released on 17 December on Netflix. The series is getting positive response from the audience.
