'I'd love to make a film on rugby'

“I would love to make a film on rugby someday but the script will not be entirely on the sport. There will be something over and above the sport as well,” said the 42-year-old actor. So does he feel that a film is sufficient to increase people’s interest in the sport? “Films on sports do increase the interest of audience in the sport initially, but I can’t say that it gets a major boost in the long run,” he opined.

The actor is currently upbeat about his upcoming film The Japanese Wife. Directed by Aparna Sen, the film revolves around a young village school teacher (Rahul) marrying his Japanese pen friend (Chigusa Takaku) though letters and remaining true and loyal to her throughout his life, while actually never meeting her.
