When I met Rahul Bose, he was in the middle of doing what he hates the most -- a photo shoot.
"It's too much of one's face being constantly looked at," he explains. The actor has to go through five outfit changes, and as he drags himself through it, he chats with me about the many movies he's got on his plate.
You're known more as a serious actor, who does parallel films. What made you take up the comedy, Maan Gaye Mugal-E-Azam, opposite Mallika Sherawat?
Very few know that I started my career as a comedian in a stage performance.
I liked the script of Maan Gaye but more than the script, the cast is important to me. It was lovely working with Paresh Rawal, Pavan Malhotra, Mallika Sherawat and Kay Kay Menon.
What is the film about?
It is about a small-town theatre group and a RAW [Research and Analysis Wing] agent, trying to help them out of terrorism. It is a black comedy.
