How would you react if you were stuck in an elevator with Chetan Bhagat? by Jitender S Bhatia
Answer by Jitender S Bhatia:
Me: Hi, no security?
Chetan: Ah no.. i am just a writer.
Me: Writer? I have never read anything you wrote though.
Chetan: Really? Not even my newspaper articles?
Me: No.. but good that politicians are writing.
Chetan: I am just a writer – no politician.
Me: You look different on TV though.
Chetan: Really? Dude.. do you even recognise me?
Me: Of-course. You are Rahul Gandhi.
Chetan: <Long Silence> I am Chetan Bhagat.
Me: <Awkward Silence – serious face>
The Lift halts at a random floor.
A foreign lady gets in.
Lady: Ooooooh! Shaitaan… Shaitaan Bucket !
Chetan: <Silence – looks at me sideways>
Me: <Trying to correct her> Actually he is…
Lady: <interrupts> Oh so he is not Shaitaan Bucket? Good. Junk writer anyway hehe.
Chetan: <Awkward Silence>
Me: <looks at the floor – innocent face – suppressed laughter>
The Lift halts. Doors open
Chetan rushes out.
Lady: Who is he?
Me: He is indeed The Chetan Bhagat. Yes.
Lady: OMG.. <rushes out>
I see Chetan running with The Lady after him shouting: Hey Shaitaan Shaitaan!
I collapse with laughter on the lift floor as the doors close.
