Mumbai | Author Chetan Bhagat has supported filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor’s fight to get a mention in the credits of Rock On 2 as a joint writer of the upcoming movie. The Kai Po Che helmer had filed a suit in the High Court seeking credit as a joint writer along with Pubali Chaudhary. 

Bhagat, who faced the similar issue during Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots as the comedy drama was loosely adapted from his novel Five Point Someone, said the writers must get credit. Writers must get credit. Glad @Abhishekapoor got justice. He backed me once when few others did. #kaipoche, Bhagat posted on Twitter. An elated Kapoor wrote, Thanks for the support bro.
The duo worked together in 2013 buddy drama Kai Po Che based on the author’s novel The 3 Mistakes of My Life. The filmmaker is currently busy with his next directorial venture Fitoor, starring Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead.
