On a New High
One of the most prolific actors of Indian Cinema, Rahul Bose was, is and will probably always remain the face that changed the landscape of Art house cinema. From his very first film English, August, his career as an actor impressed audiences and filmmakers alike. Since then he has worked in some prolific films such as Mr & Mrs Iyer, Chameli, Before the Rains, The Japanese Wife, Midnight’s Children, and experimented with different genres in Jhankar Beats, Pyaar Ke Side Effects and Dil Dharakne Do to name just a few. Even though his acting career has been way more active than his directorial ventures, directing is far more exciting for him. ‘It has always been clear to me that I love directing more than acting; however, I enjoy acting as well. If there was only acting in the world then I would be an ecstatic human being, but in directing I have found a greater ecstasy.’
