sus asked, rahul, have u done any south indian movies
Rahul Bose answers, no, but i have just finished an art film in English with Santosh Sivan that has been produced by a Hollywood company in which I play a Malayali villager
sapang asked, Rahul , If I am not wrong you are also a social worker and you had been to Andaman Nikober during Tsunami. Do you find time for those kind of work ? Do you think that you guys are doing enough for the society ? nidhi84 says, rahul r u palying base ball in indian base ball team?i heard tht u r selected for indian team is this true?
Rahul Bose answers, I have and will continue to find time for my work on the islands. I believe there are too few of us in the film industry who genuinely care with any depth or insight or compassion for the multitude of causes that need attention in this country. Also, the question is - how much is really enough in a country of 1.1 billion? There is no baseball officially in India as yet. I play rugby for the country.
Rahul Bose says, Thank you everybody. I have not done justice to all the questions you have put to me, but hopefully i will live a few years more, do a few more films and be back on this site. lots of love. rahul
