His own mantra for success is to make the character look justifiable and to do everything to make it believable. That’s also the reason why he’s opted to do a period film like Kerala directed by ace cinematographer Santosh Sivan. Set in 1937, Bose will be playing a Malayali villager along with Nandita Das and a host of other British actors. “I had to learn Malayalam, which was not so easy but I managed it. This will be radically different from all the other movies I am doing,” he admits.
Elsewhere it's been said that it's an English-language film, but this Nandita Das interview also says it's bilingual.
