Its been great going Chetan Bhagat as 2 States based on his book is inching towards becoming a hit. The other two films that have hit bulls eyes based on his novels are 3 Idiots based on Five Point Someone and Kai Po Che based on 3 Mistakes of My Life. However Hello directed by Atul Agnihotri based on Chetan Bhagat‘s novel, One Night @ The Call Center was a Box Office disaster.
After watching 2 States, Mahesh Bhatt praised his daughter Alia Bhatt and her co-star Arjun Kapoor‘s acting. He is that much impressed by Arjun’s acting that he messaged his father Boney Kapoor. Looking at the weekend trend 2 States should hold and is the biggest hit of 2014.
