First, the buzz was around its title and now, it is about the content! Chetan Bhagat’s book ‘Half Girlfriend’ has landed in trouble.

As reported by Hindustan Times, Chandra Vijay Singh, a scion of the erstwhile princely state of Dumraon (Bihar) has slapped a Rs.1 crore defamation suit on author Chetan Bhagat.

Chandra claimed that references to his family in Chetan Bhagat’s book are “false and derogatory in nature”. Chandra Singh is the eldest son of Maharaja Bahadur Kamal Singh, the last ruler of Dumraon before its accession to the Indian union in 1952.
