Chetan Bhagat’s latest novel, One Indian Girl, was recently published on October 1, 2016. This is his seventh novel, which follows best-sellers like The 3 Mistakes of My Life, One Night @ the Call Center, Five Point Someone, etc. One Indian Girl is about an Indian woman who finds it difficult to find love because she is intelligent and successful.

To gauge the reactions of his fans after reading the book, he recently took to Twitter to post a picture of a copy of the book and wrote: “#OneIndianGirl in Mykonos, Greece. Send me pics of the book in a beautiful backdrop. Will RT best ones. Let’s see your phone camera skills!”
No sooner that he posted this, there were people posting similar photos on Twitter, just like the author asked, only that they also decided to troll Bhagat, while at it. Twitterati tweeted pictures of the book in absolutely hilarious backdrops, which also included bathrooms! Some showed the book as being burnt, others showed the papers of the book as being used as toilet paper!
If that weren’t all, they photoshopped the book as being used to make paper cones by street vendors to serve people peanuts!
Here are some of the reactions his tweet garnered.

Bhagat however, took all of this in his stride and tweeted,
Nice. A little better photoshop needed but good effort :). Happy to be in every corner of my great country. http://t.co/p4cJrLxd5f

Maybe, the writer did not see that coming, or did he?
