Meet Ketan Bhagat. Bestselling author Chetan Bhagat’s kid brother who is not part of the big, fat “CB Family” that drools over every word Chetan writes, who told his brother 10 years ago that the smashing hit One Night @ the Call Centre would not work, who was bullied by his big brother when he was growing up, and who now describes his relationship with his brother as “cordial”.
Two books down, Ketan is a bestselling author himself – whatever the word bestselling translates into. At 39, he has seen a lot of life. From cleaning bathrooms in a 5-star hotel, to a stint in Singapore’s IT sector, to his current trips to the family court to seek permission to meet his six-year old.
But there’s something about this Bhagat – he is down-to-earth and affable, and when he flip-flops, you know he is doing it for the sake of Big Brother.
