Mumbai, April 4 (IANS) Two of the films being released this week, "Shaurya" and "Khuda Kay Liye", are about the isolation of individuals on the basis of their religious and cultural beliefs. Rahul Bose calls it a "happy coincidence".
"This is a fairly good week to release 'Shaurya'. Next week we'll again be sandwiched between two biggies."
Rahul plays the main lead in "Shaurya", which also has Kay Kay Menon and Minissha Lamba.
"'Shaurya' is about discrimination. It is absolutely fantastic that 'Shaurya' is coming alongside 'Khuda Kay Liye'. I wish they had come one after another so that the message would've lingered. Maybe audiences will see one and go to the other, but I'm definitely catching 'Khuda Kay Liye'," Rahul told IANS.
Rahul says film premieres disturb him a lot.
"Premieres disturb me deeply. The audience has no respect for the film. It's all about the who's who. After films are over the director and actor lose touch."
The film is journalist-turned-director Samar Khan's second directorial venture.
"It is a very important film for Samar. As for me my career is so insignificant in the larger scheme of things. 'Shaurya' won't change me into a superstar."
"Shaurya" is one of Rahul's rare films in Hindi.
"There's lots of dialogues in English. But I speak more Hindi than the other major characters."
