He wrote a lot of books but six of them became bestsellers in less than a week after their launch. He was included in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” top.He has an engineering and MBA degree and he started writing as a hobby.
After knowing success in this domain he quit his old job, in the financial sector in Hong Kong and he dedicated himself to writing. Chetan Bhagat is a complex writer; he has written from films to fiction and he even published articles about national issues. He is a perfectionist with a modern way to see things and he tries to convince his readers that this is the right thing to do.The modern society and its characters are Chetan Bhagat’s inspiration and he often says that he writes about people for people.
