Mumbai: Author Chetan Bhagat, who has written the screenplay for the upcoming movie '2 States', is excited as the film's next shooting destination is IIM-Ahmedabad, of which he is an alumnus.

"'2 States' - the film, starts shooting its next schedule in IIM Ahmedabad tomorrow (Monday). Real location. Real excitement," Bhagat tweeted on Sunday.

Based on his 2009 novel '2 States: The Story of My Marriage', the film is not his first novel to be adapted into a movie.

The film '2 States' is a romantic story of a Punjabi boy who falls in love with a Tamil girl, and the ensuing cultural clash between them and their families.

Directed by Abhishek Verman, '2 States' is being co-produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Karan Johar, Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
