Actor-turned-director Rahul Bose, who is very excited for his upcoming directorial venture 'Poorna: Courage Has No Limit', says people should remember his essence rather than him as an individual.

“I do not want to be remembered as an individual. I will be more than happy to know that people are remembering me as an actor who acted really well to create an impact in the film. They should remember the essence of me,” the actor said.

“I think acting has made me a better director because I understand how to explain a scene or a situation to actors that help them to perform. In last 22 years, working with some celebrated filmmakers, I learnt a lot about filmmaking on set. So I think when I direct a film now, I know what to do and not to do as a director,” he said.

Rahul Bose debuted as director with ‘Everybody Says I’m Fine!’ in 2001. His second directorial of the actor is based on the real life story of Malavath Purna, the youngest Indian mountaineer from Nizamabad district of Telangana.

“The journey of the girl makes it intriguing. As she comes from a society where at her age, girls get married. She is not educated and born into a very poor family. Breaking all these barriers, reaching the top, with such courage is absolutely inspirational!” Rahul said.
