“There’s no dinner with Scarlet Johansson”- Rahul Bose

In New York, Rahul Bose is all set to attend an Oxfam summit on 28 September. He’s rather perturbed by media reports back home that he’s met and had dinner with Scarlet Johansson. “I know the Indian media needs its glamour quotient to spice up my life before putting it in print. But I’m sorry. There’s no Scarlett Johansson. In fact there’s no dinner. The Oxfam summit which will launch a poverty-eradication initiative called ‘In My Name’ will happen on the morning of September 28 and Scarlett who ‘s an Oxfam ambassador is not coming, for whatever reason. The celebrities are economist Jeffrey Sachs, Kristin Davis of Sex & The City and Mary Robinson, who’s the first premiere female president of Ireland. Are these not glamorous enough for the Indian media? Then how about this? The hip-hop singer Will I Am will be singing a song specially composed for the ‘In My Name’ initiative with all of celebrities signing a pledge to fight hunger and poverty in our country.” Big day coming up for Rahul? “You mean in spite of the glamorous Oxfam ambassadors Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren and Annie Lennox not being there? Seriously, I get to have my say on topics related to human rights that really concern me. To me getting to speak on such an important issue on a global platform is very important.” And Rahul has written his speech all by himself. Also on the anvil on the evening of September 28 is a performance by hip-hop singer Will I Am from the band Black Eyed Peas. “Will I Am has written a song specially for that evening. It’s quite an event. Because Black Eyed Peas are really huge on the American charts. So yes, I’m looking forward to the event, “said Rahul from New York. Before the Oxfam get-together, Rahul addresses students from the Cornell University on acting. “I feel very far away from Mumbai. Do I miss the city? I miss my sister and my niece. They’re the only family I know. And I carry them with me wherever I go.”
