Rahul Bose to make film on illicit affairs

Bollywood actor Rahul Bose will direct a film next year based on a novel - Moth Smoke written by Pakistani author Mohsin Hamid - about an extra-marital affair in contemporary Pakistan.

The shooting is expected to begin by October. "In two weeks time, the final draft will be ready and the funders, who absolutely loved it, are waiting for it," Bose said.

Bose, whose roles of the urban intellectual man have won him many awards and critical acclaim, has directed only one film - Everybody Says I'm Fine released in 2002 - which earned him recognition as a director and writer.

Known for his portrayal of characters like the Muslim man who helps a Hindu girl during communal riots in the 2002 film Mr and Mrs Iyer, Bose believes Bollywood will see more successful movies made with moderate budgets.
