The seventh edition of the Bangalore Lit Fest (BLF) is making news even before its launch.
Citing pre-scheduled commitments, noted author Chetan Bhagat is likely to skip the festival. Online portals are abuzz with reports that the celebrated author will not participate in the event, scheduled to be held on October 27 and 28 at the Lalith Ashok hotel. Chetan Bhagat recently found himself in the eye of the raging #MeToo storm, with a few women accusing him of sending inappropriate messages. When DH contacted the organisers of the event, they refused to comment on his participation at this juncture.
