Chetan Bhagat's new novel, One Indian Girl, is yet to launch, but has already garnered a bunch of attention in the media. It first became a talking point because it is his first novel from the perspective of a woman, and touches upon topics like feminism.
However, the latest reason this book is in the spotlight is because of Kangana Ranaut, who says she wants to play the lead if (or rather when, considering Chetan Bhagat's book-to-movie track record so far) when One Indian Girl gets adapted on the screen.
Bhagat sent her an early copy of his book, and Kangana apparently liked it so much that she called him up and said, "Did you really write this? It's a wonderful book, a must-read! I'm definitely playing the lead whenever you turn the book into a film."
As of now, Kangana's next movie is Rangoon, which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, and hits the theatres next year.
If Kangana does end up being the lead in a film adaptation of One Indian Girl, she'd probably start shooting at the end of 2017.
