Was it a deliberate decision to do two back-to-back horror films?
There was no thought in place, but I would have been very foolish not to do these films. Both films are very entertaining and are sure-shot winners. Not only were the scripts entertaining for the audience, but my characters were also very well-written. You don't always get such good roles written out for women in Hindi films.
The genre does not matter, as long as the film is strong, it's commercial and I am getting to do something that is exciting for me.
Do you believe in ghosts at all?

As the very articulate Rahul Bose settles down for a quick chat after the 'Soldier for Women' press conference, he looks a little bothered with someone smoking in the room. He quickly adds that he is okay with people smoking but he doesn't have to inhale their smoke. Actor-activist Rahul Bose has very strong opinions and he tells us why he thinks item songs are totally superfluous. Excerpts from the interview:
Women-centric films like 'Kahaani' and 'English Vinglish' have become as popular as mainstream Bollywood films. What's your take on that?
Women-centric films can still be about the exploitation of women in terms of the story. Just because it is a women-centric film doesn't mean that the director respects women. It is not enough to have women-centric roles; we don't even need women-centric roles. As long as we have cinema that has an inherent respect for women and their place in society, I am okay with that.
Having said that, these films have certainly busted the myth that only Read More »from Rahul Bose Unplugged
