Rahul Bose on why his films would never have an item number and why he is still single

Rahul Bose discusses his movies, what drives his activism and what worries him about India with Shoma Chaudhury at Algebra The Arts and Ideas Club on 24 April 2018

While talking about gender equality, Rahul Bose says that, "gender sensitivity in films should be as easy as breathing and if not then one shouldn't bother to make a film". He also says that he would never include an item number in any of his films. Apart from being an actor and a director, Bose is also a social activist and he says that one of the things that made him plunge into activism is the 1992 Mumbai riots.

Rahul Bose is an actor, director, social activist and a rugby player. Bose has acted in numerous films such as “Pyaar Ke Side Effects”, “Maan Gaye Mughal-e-Azam” and “Jhankaar Beats” to name a few. Popularly known as "the Sean Penn of Oriental cinema", Bose has also directed many films, the most recent one being “Poorna: Courage Has No Limit”, a film based on the story of the youngest girl to climb Mount Everest. Bose also runs an anti-discrimination NGO called The Foundation.

Algebra takes the idea of a club – a universe of the likeminded – and expands it to new paradigms. The key idea behind Algebra is to bring together a fellowship of people who believe great cities are built not just on infrastructure but a life of the mind; who understand robust and liberal societies need the oxygen of great conversation and nuanced thinking. At a time when we are increasingly surrounded by rage and noise, Algebra is that unique live and continuous space where people could go for a genuine exchange of ideas and exposure to issues; where new seeds could be sparked, fresh perspectives formed, and intelligent connections made.

Algebra – the Arts and Ideas Club is designed to host over 60 conversations over the year with topline thinkers and practitioners from almost every discipline that impacts human affairs: politics, economy, environment, spirituality, cinema, medicine, science, technology, music, media, literature, the arts, sports, people’s movements, et al. In a line, Algebra is a space where one can meet an exciting, cutting-edge spectrum of people shaping the world in different ways. Where one can test one’s ideas, challenge one’s perspectives, and build friendships. A sort of fellowship of the curious and engaged.

Membership to Algebra is by invitation or referral. If you know an Algebra member, ask them to put you in touch with us. For more, click HERE:
