Chetan Bhagat needs no introduction. He's a man of many talents. He's an 'award-winning' author who can judge a dance reality show like a pro despite having questionable dancing skills. He can even address people at World Space Week as the Chief Guest of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) because...it's not 'rocket-science' for him.
But, there's one thing that the multi-talented Bhagat can't do and that is stopping himself from getting brutally trolled on social media. And the '3 Mistakes Of My Life' author just made the fourth mistake of his life when he tried to outsmart trolls on Twitter and got royally roasted instead.
It all began when someone on Twitter asked who's the most overrated Indian author. He wrote, "Guys, if I ask you to name the most overrated Indian author, what name comes to your mind at first?" Bhagat tried to outsmart the troll and repied to the tweet saying 'Me'. As if people hadn't guessed that already.

Soon, someone replied "He said Author", to which Bhagat replied "I only read overrated." And then came the golden reply that left us choking with laughter. Taking cue from one of his books, someone wrote "Half Reader".

As if people weren't making enough jokes on Bhagat already, he held his own hand and walked himself into the world of mockery. But, it's Chetan Bhagat we're talking about. He's like Arjun Kapoor of the publishing world. *Did you really think we'll forget 'Panipat' trailer so soon.*
