Rahul Bose has made a comeback with various films releasing on popular streaming networks. However, the actor has revealed that not much has changed in his process of choosing a project. He says that he prefers films that engage the audience more than simply running after fame.
Speaking to IANS Bose said, "Honestly speaking, my rules of saying yes to a project do not change. For me, the story matters, and not the length of my character. I think by now people know that. I am not the person running after fame or concern about how many people are watching my work. For me, the story has to be important enough to engage, as an actor and as an audience."
Rahul has starred in many critically acclaimed films including Mr. And Mrs. Iyer, Jhankaar Beats, Chameli, Shaurya, The Japanese Wife, I Am, and Dil Dhadakne Do.
He added saying, "In the past, there were films and projects that have been offered to me and I said no to them. You see, the story has to have some amount of humanism. You can show a character as the biggest evil (person) of the world and still can come up with the right message -- not one that is destructive or negative. A message cannot glorify hatred, and if it does, I do not want to be part of that. Of course, my character can be the villain but not the overall message of the film."
He also said that he does not want to do films full of propagating propaganda. He said, "In the recent past I am offered a film that shows a very, very narrow view of nationalism and it was quite a jingoistic story. I can never be part of that. I am the same actor who was part of a film like "Shaurya" that sent out an absolutely right message -- that is, no matter which religion, caste or region you are from, when you are a man in a uniform, all you are upholding is the security of your country."
