“I am happy that Kai Po Che is on floors” – Chetan Bhagat

After a long wait, the movie adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s best selling novel ‘3 Mistakes of My Life’ is finally on floors. Produced by UTV and directed by Abhishek Kapoor (of Rock On fame), the film is called Kai Po Che and is currently being shot in Gujarat.

The makers have yet not revealed the cast but Chetan Bhagat earlier posted this image and tweeted, “Exclusive: Still from the 3 Mistakes movie. What say?” The image shows the character of Ishaan who plays a cricketer.

Speaking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama, Chetan said, “I am happy and excited that the film is finally on floors. Abhishek Kapoor is braving the hot summer heat in Gujarat with the entire cast and crew. They are shooting in Vadnagar in Mehsana district of Gujarat and will also be filming scenes in Ahmedabad. I myself am dying to get on set soon.”

Chetan further added, “When the film was announced, people were telling us that this film won’t be allowed to screen in Gujarat. But I am happy to state that the Government of Gujarat has been very co-operative to us and in fact almost the entire film is being shot there in actual locations. We also met up with the CM of Gujarat- Mr. Narendra Modi who has been very co-operative in allowing us to shoot the film in Gujarat and he has also ensured that the film will release in Gujarat as well.”

Refusing to divulge the cast, Chetan said, “I’d rather have the makers UTV to make an official announcement regarding the cast but I can tell you that we have a new and exciting cast on hand. The film is quite a faithful adaptation of the book and I am sure people won’t be disappointed. It’s a coming together of UTV, Abhishek Kapoor and myself. Abhishek had a lot of offers post Rock On but I am glad that he stuck by our vision to first make the movie adaptation of ‘3 Mistakes of My Life’.”

Abhishek Kapoor also tweeted, “It’s hot but it makes me feel Alive. On set. ‘Kai Po Che’. Day ‘forever’ (9, actually!). Team’s in the groove, Cast in their skin. I smile. So humbling to be on a set with incredible new talent. Feels like my innocence is kept intact. No greater joy than rediscovering a lost one!”

The screenplay of the film has been written by Abhishek Kapoor, Chetan Bhagat, Pubali Chaudhari and Supratik Sen.
