"I don't want to change my writing style. I want to write books as books. I don't want to change my books because of some film-related reason. I will continue to make my books as they are," Bhagat said.

Most of his books like "The Three Mistakes of My Life", "Five Point Someone" and "2 States: The Story of My Marriage" impressed Bollywood filmmakers enough to turn these into films.

The adaptations have garnered mixed response at the box office. While "3 Idiots", based on "Five Point Someone", and "2 States", inspired by "2 States: The Story of My Marriage", raked in a good business, "Kai Po Che", a take on "The Three Mistakes of My Life", got only tepid response.

"People have liked the films and I feel filmmakers have done justice to the book," said the IIT-Delhi and IIM-Ahmedabad alumnus.

Talking about the film on "Half Girlfriend", which is being helmed by Mohit Suri, he said "We still have to start to work on it. But I have been kept in the loop. Mohit is busy in some other film right now, so the work on that film will start soon. I am co-producing 'Half Girlfriend'. So, I am trying to be more and more involved."

Bhagat, who is currently seen judging reality TV show 'Nach Baliye 7', has tried his hand at screenplay writing for Salman Khan-starrer "Kick".
