Alia Bhatt in '2 States'

The recently released ‘2 States’ has seen some success at the box office in its opening weekend. Starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor in the lead roles, the film is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name, loosely the story of his life. News has it that Bhagat wants Bhatt as leading lady once again in the film adaptation of his book ‘Revolution 2020’.

Bhagat has been so impressed with Bhatt’s performance in ‘2 States’ that he is apparently pushing for her to be signed again in the adaptation which will see her play the role of Aarti. Rajkumar Gupta will be working on the film with Bhagat but the latter will not get too close to the screenplay.

Bhagat’s novels have proved popular when put on the big screen with films like ‘3 Idiots’ (2009) and ‘Kai Po Che’ (2013) doing particularly well with the audiences.
