Siddharth Roy Kapoor of UTV Motion Pictures CEO said,

The book was extremely engaging and topical, which is why it made sense to strike the deal.

We have been in discussions with Chetan for a while to do something together. When he shared his latest book with us even before it was published, we read it cover to cover in a single sitting. Its simply unputdownable,

He has crafted such a dramatic plot with such sharply defined characters, that you’re constantly wondering how things will play out. The issues he deals with in the book are those today’s youth will instantly relate to and identify with. We’re very excited to work with him on making a great film from what we all believe is a great book,

He also announced that he is really happy about the film,

Happy to announce the Revolution 2020 movie deal with UTV. Tell@utvmp who’d make a good Gopal, Aarti & Raghav!,
