The actress, who is from Bihar, has voiced her views on her official Facebook page regarding the stereotypes reinforced by the author in his latest book which is also being made into a film.

Neetu says, "He makes his Bihari protagonist, incidentally from my town Dumraon, as someone who is bad at English. But to Chetan Bhagat's disappointment, let me tell you guys, the first ever English novel in this country was written by Dean Mohammad from Bhojpur region in Bihar in 1793. Better luck next time Chetan. Biharis have better English than your imagination. Bhagat Bhai, Bihar ke aankh se dekha ja ke, khali kaan se maat suna." Wonder what Chetan has to say about it?
