Revolution 2020 Movie – UTV buys rights from Chetan Bhagat

Recently, Sajid Nadiadwala announced that he will adapt the popular novel Two States into a film. Now, Bhagat’s latest release Revolution 2020 is next in queue to be filmed.

The novel proved to be a bestseller with 8.5 lakh copies being sold, barely a month after it’s release. In the past, UTV has expressed their desire to work with Bhagat and when the author shared his new book even before its release, UTV quickly acquired the rights.

Revolution 2020 is a tale pivotal to characters, Raghav, Gopal and Aarti and their lives. It is basically about the issues faced by today’s youth.

2 novels written by Bhagat have been adapted into Bollywood movies. One Night At The Call Centre was directed by Atul Agnihotri and the second more popular release was Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots that mirrored the novel Five Point Someone. Huge controversy followed as the makers of 3 Idiots didn’t credit Bhagat for the film’s story.

The author announced on twitter “Happy to announce the Revolution 2020 movie deal with UTV. Tell @utvmp who`d make a good Gopal, Aarti $ Raghav! (sic)”
