Rahul khanna dating

Since film is one of the most creative mediums out there, I guess it was a natural choice,” he says.Rahul went on attend the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute followed by the School of Visual Arts, both in New York.A firm believer and advocate of ethical treatment towards animals, Rahul is one of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India’s celebrity ambassadors.“I’ve always loved animals and am only too happy to lend support to any organisation that works with them,” he explains.Having dabbled in television, theatre, film and stage, Rahul believes though “very different from each other”, each one of his avatars are “extremely satisfying, creatively, in their own way.” Film, which he describes as “magical”, however, will always be the medium that’s closest to his heart.Of all the roles he has essayed thus far, in Rahul’s view his most challenging one was that of Tariq, a brash, womanising half-Pakistani, half-British young man in the New York stage production of the hit West-End theatrical adaptation of . I am allergic to cigarettes so I had to use special herbal cigarettes and take lots of anti-histamines,” recalls Rahul who for the role, trained under a dialect coach to “perform in a Mancunian accent”.

Rahul has appeared on stage in the New York production of East is East and his screen credits include Deepa Mehta's "Hollywood/Hollywood", Kevin Kline starrer "The Emperor's Club", TV film "3AM" with Danny Glover and Hindi films "Elaan", "Raqeeb" and "Tahaan".The good looking actor has also appeared in commercials endorsing brands such as Toyota, Pepsi and Lays.The son of a 1970s Bollywood matinee idol turned politician, Rahul may have made his father Vinod Khanna’s industry his own, but has surely chosen to shape his own career rather differently.He explains, “My dad was a huge star but our parents made a conscious decision to keep us quite removed from that world and his work was always something he left at the door when he came home.” Also, “the additional geographical disconnect of living in south Bombay” and not the north where most of the film industry is based, also came into play.Rahul’s parents split when both he and his brother were quite young and the two lived with their mother, so other than “occasional visits” to his father’s film sets, they didn’t really have access to the film world.Rahul’s twitter bio enlists him as a ‘Boutique Bollywood Actor’; a term that he says “was born out of necessity”.“When I meet new people and they learn I’m an actor in the Indian film industry they always go, ‘Oh, so you must do 5-10 films a year.’ It’s often tedious trying to explain the esoteric space I occupy in such a prolific industry.Unlike most star children, Rahul’s on-screen career began as a video jockey for MTV Asia. I got to travel constantly, interact with huge international stars and work with some very creative people,” he explains.“Hosting TV shows is all about addressing the camera, whereas acting in films is all about pretending the camera doesn’t exist.A more respectful way to observe these animals is through the fascinating wildlife programs available to everyone on TV.” More recently, Rahul, on behalf of PETA, wrote to Jayanthi Natarajan, India’s Minister of State for Environment and Forests, urging her to ban the sale and use of manjha (kite-string coated with powdered glass), which is known to maim or kill countless birds.“Something this dangerous should be considered a deadly weapon and must be outlawed without delay,” wrote Khanna.
