It's a dream come true moment for me: Actor Rahul Dev Bose on bagging a film
Rahul is currently in Guskara, Burdwan, with his team shooting for the upcoming movie. In a candid conversation with ETimes TV, Rahul shared how much he is enjoying the moment. “It’s indeed a dream come true moment for me. I was 10 or 11 when I started dreaming about acting. I am enjoying this moment to the fullest,” shared the actor. Rahul considers the upcoming one as his first film although he appeared in 'Uma' and 'Abhijan' for a scene. He didn't have much action in these films.
With butterflies in his stomach, Rahul was waiting for the shooting. “My first day at shoot has been amazing as well as hectic, to be honest. I have been nervous and excited at the same time. The crew members are really helpful and patient. Our director is one of the sweetest people I have met in the longest time but he's also a tough task master. He has been very particular about what he wants from our characters on-screen. I felt a profound difference in the style of acting expected of me as opposed to my forays on television. To be honest, I have taken some time to adjust but the entire team was very co-operative and I have been given a lot of patience to work it out. I'm slowly getting into the groove with the character,” says Rahul.
The actor has been a part of several television shows. ‘Bajlo Tomar Alor Benu’ was his first television serial as a lead. Interestingly, Rahul has been mostly seen playing negative characters in the TV shows. Speaking about the same, Rahul adds, “I believe, the section of the audience who have followed my television career, people who kept asking me when they will see me in roles other than the out and out villainous roles, that have helped me carve a niche on television for myself, will be happy to see me in a film.”
Rahul is sharing the screen with his good friend Ishaa. Interestingly, years back, Rahul and Ishaa attended an audition organised by a leading TV channel. They were quite young. Though Ishaa bagged a project, Rahul’s luck didn’t click. But they continued their friendship. And after all these years, Rahul and Ishaa are finally sharing the screen.
“Ishaa and I are friends for the longest time now. Our acting careers started at around the same time and we auditioned together for a television show before we got our breaks on-screen. She had cleared that audition we had given together whereas I would go on to find my first break a year later. But we had this strong desire since that day. We knew we would share the screen together. It’s been years but now I have the good fortune of appearing on screen with my best friend,” adds Rahul.
The actor is having a jolly good time working with his real-life best friend. “Working with your best friend is a joy even though we do pull each other’s leg a lot on the shooting floor (laughs). Ishaa is a magnificent actress. It's already been an enriching experience working opposite an actor of her calibre. The schedule is quite hectic and the rhythm we are working at is intense but what makes it a little easier is the really scenic location we are shooting at. It has a vibe and energy of its own and it seems we are going to have a great time shooting the film for sure,” Rahul shared before signing off.
Actor Rahul Dev Bose to play an entrepreneur in upcoming show ‘Sagar Jyoti’
Earlier, ETimes TV reported that actress Nabanita Malakaris playing the female lead in the soon-to-be-launched TV drama.
Rahul will be seen in a completely different avatar in ‘SagarJyoti’. He will play Sagar, an ambitious entrepreneur.
Speaking with ETimes TV, Rahul adds, “I'm quite pleased with the opportunity to play Sagar. He's different from every other character I've played before. Sagar is stylish, savvy and a sharp entrepreneur whose intention is to achieve higher goals. He returns to the country to be with his family as well as to stir up the local business scene.”
The shoot for the upcoming show has already resumed. ‘Sagar Jyoti’ will feature some of the very popular actors in prominent roles including Chandreyee Ghosh. And Rahul is all excited about the new venture.
“I look forward to this character even more so because I've worked with the same production team and crew previously and I've enjoyed myself to no end. I trust them a lot in terms of the creativity and quality they strive to pursue and it was the biggest reason for me to say yes to the project,” Rahul adds. The actor recently did a movie starring Ishaa Saha, Indraneil Senguptawhich is awaiting its release.

Cookery show ‘Rannaghar’ to feature Rahul Dev Bose and his family; here's what the actor has to say about the experience
Speaking about the experience, Rahul says, “I'm really happy because this is the first time my entire family is on-air together. Ma has appeared on a number of shows with me before but to have my father and brother as well, is something special for me. And featuring together in Sudipa di's show is more of a blessing. She is my extended family. The elder sister I didn't have before.”
The actor shares a special bonding with Sudipa. He essayed the role of the lead male actor in ‘Bajlo Tomar Alor Benu’, produced by Agnidev Chatterjee. Sudipa handled the creative aspects of the show.
“I made my first appearance on TV as a hero under Sudipa di’s guidance in her and Agni da's production. She has been a huge guiding factor in my life since then,” says the actor.
Rahul and his family had a gala time while shooting for the special episode.
Meanwhile, Rahul’s career seems to be on the right track. He was recently seen in the daily soap ‘Sanjher Baati’ playing a meaty role. Rahul recently did two movies as well.
Spread the love
After releasing It’s Complicated, we talked to Rahul Dev Bose about his career, life, and more.
1) Tell us your story. How did you get started with your career?
Ok, this is kind of long. But I always loved my time on stage as I would act in plays a lot. It was a school and college thing but over time, I met teachers and professors who impressed upon me the idea that I should look towards making a career in film. So, while still doing my post grads I started working sporadically as an assistant for some projects from outside town. I had amazingly lucky trysts with directors from France and ended up assisting in a couple of their projects before I took up a more full time assistant director role with national award winning director, Mr. Srijit Mukherjee.
But here’s the fun part. From out of nowhere, luck struck me like lightning and someone at a television channel in Kolkata showed the casting executives my photos when they were looking for fresh faces. I got a call, and voila…in a few years, here I am.
2) How do you feel about your latest piece, It’s Complicated? What did you enjoy about the experience?
In two words? The freedom. The creative freedom was a fabulous experience and it forced all the actors to think in a very different way to how we are used to during our preparation for roles. It’s like a high for an actor to be afforded such freedom. And yes, I will put my hands up and say I made very many mistakes during the shoot, probably the most in number amongst us. But the learning from each mistake has left me a far better actor and in a way I fell in love with acting a little bit more at the end of it all.
3) What do you enjoy the most about acting? Is it your sole passion, and why or why not?
It allows me to be so many people in a lifetime. I can be a doctor, an engineer, a caveman, a singer (but I can’t sing to save my life), a hero, a villain, a very normal guy and then some. It fulfills me in so many ways, I cannot really explain. It is my greatest passion but it has stiff competition from my love for writing. There’s a different high to writing as well. I guess, I really love both with a passion because it helps me to connect with people, touch people’s lives and it helps me make people feel a whole range of emotions and the look in their eyes when they’ve felt it is my greatest reward. Probably the reason why I would spend so much of my time as a child and teenager on stage.
4) Outside of working on projects like this, what else do you enjoy doing?
As an actor? There’s nothing better than projects like this. I do enjoy working on stuff which helps me learn and grow as an actor.
When I’m not acting I enjoy almost the same things that everyone does.
I enjoy reading, long walks and kullar ki chai. I like sitting with close friends and sharing mindless laughs. But mostly, give me a pen, a quiet room, a cup of coffee and lovely weather and you won’t see me for hours because I’m just sitting there, in my own world, writing.
5) What is the biggest challenge you have faced in your career, and how did you/are you combating it?
I think it’s been challenging being someone who has no background in film or television to break into this world and sustain even moderate success. I am a first generation actor from my family and when I told everyone at home, I am going to work in film and television (the web platform was not really there back then) it left everyone worried.
Two fold, I think the challenges of finding my way in the dark trying to figure how to make it work and often facing some resistance at the door from those unwilling to let newbies in and by sustained effort convincing my family that I have a career in this world. These were the two greatest challenges in my career so far. And I guess I just chose to not give up even when it felt like I should.
I still feel like that at times, but the love of what I do has consumed me such that no matter how many suggestions reach my ear or mind that I am not good enough (yes, actors hear that A LOT and not just me, anyone you could name), the effort to stand up to any problem is worth the trouble in the end. So we fight our way through because of the love of what we do.
6) What is your biggest success and why do you take pride in it?
Oh, it’s when some people who’ve watched me on television or otherwise, they come up to me and tell me how sad, happy, angry and proud they were that my character on a show or a series they watched did a certain something. I take pride in the fact that I can make them feel something so strongly even if it is for a while. It’s what I live for as an actor and for me I will take pride in it every day.
7) If you could work with any actor/actress, who would you choose?
Anthony Hopkins, Eyes Closed. That would be such a dream come true.
8) Any advice for aspiring actors?
Do not give in or give up unless you fall out of love with acting. Success is relative, fame and fortune is fleeting and time is an equalizer. So if you work hard, even if it is years from now, you will be rewarded. But regrets are permanent. If you give up too soon because you felt love is not worth fighting for, you’ll regret it over the years. As long as you love acting, keep at it, you will win eventually.
