Rahul Bose may best be known for his understated performances in art house films but the actor says that he now wants to kick up his heels with an action flick.
“I would like to do one action film. But that’s all.
If I am offered a second one, I won’t do it,” the actor, who is at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) with his Bengali film ‘Antaheen’ told PTI.
The 42-year-old actor who has been touted as ‘the superstar of Indian art house cinema’ said that he plans to stick to the genre as he finds commercial films “repetitive and boring“.
“Commercial cinema is completely boring to do, Occasionally, I may do them just to change my taste,” he said.
Bose who plays an IPS officer in ‘Antaheen’, said that a film does not have to stick to the cut and dried commercial formula to be a success with the audiences.
‘Antaheen’ directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury ran for 15 weeks in Bengal and it was also released in Mumbai where it received a good response.
It was shown in the New York for the film festival and the hall was packed, everybody understood it. It’s very acceptable, urban, good looking and very well shot film," he commented.
“It has no commercial element in it but there is an emotional resonance in the film that everybody can understand,” said Bose adding that the film ran to packed halls at a New York festival.
Bose will be seen in Aparna Sen’s ‘Japanese Wife’, Onir’s ‘I am’, ‘You are Fired’ and ‘Kuchch Love Jaisa’ next year.
