He talks when he pleases. And then there’s no stopping him. An ad guy-cum-Rugby player who turned actor, Rahul Bose gets candid.

Action, please:
His name is indeed synonymous with everything hatke. Rahul has liberally experimented with genres, languages co-stars.

Be it a musical comed like Jhankar Beats, or an English film White Noise, even Pyaar Ke Side Effects opposite Mallika Sherawat, for that matter. He now has something new on his mind. “I keen to attempt an action film.”

Prod him further and he reasons, “I have been a Rugby player for years now. I should be able to carry off action very well. I wouldn’t all that bad in flying all over the places. Also, I wouldn’t be scared getting hurt at all.”

The man has an inevitable sense of reasoning and he uses it effectively with a pinch of salt. Check this out. “I made up my mind to play Rugby at the age of 14. I wanted to be famous among girls, and I thought Rugby being a macho sport would help. Unfortunately I am still trying.”

Heart to heart:
Not many know association with an NGO, that works for the cause of children’s betterment. “We have taken the first major step but I would talk about it only after six months.”

So, what happened to his love for the art house cinema? “It’s the soul of my actor’s personality. I have a deep abiding for the art
house cinema.”

Not that we disagree.
