Boys don’t watch love stories: Rahul Bose
He has played characters that every woman adores. And actor Rahul Bose loves that bit. â€œBoys donâ€™t watch love stories. It is the women who drive the audience to such films. Guys donâ€™t mind accompanying them. So, I love doing films on relationships, which bring in the audience,â€ says Rahul, who awaits the release of another such film â€” Kucch Luv Jaisaa.
Bose says, â€œEach of my characters has struck a particular chord with the women audience. Be it my role in Mr & Mrs Iyer, where girls got thinking â€˜what ifâ€™ and â€˜if onlyâ€™ or the complete jerk in Pyaar Ke Side Effects, where girls have known such guys in their lives.
Then my role in The Japanese Wife had all girls sighing â€˜I wish a guy loved me like thatâ€™. The reason is, women love to share their emotions, men on the other hand, prefer to act simple even though theyâ€™re complicated.â€
Probe him further and he says, â€œMen are like that. They donâ€™t want to share their feelings or talk about emotional issues. I recently found out about a friend of mine who has been living apart from his wife and kid because of his extra marital affair only through a newspaper report. When I call him, he behaves like his world is completely alright. Thatâ€™s the problem with men.â€
