After doing theatre for five years and facing the camera for some prominent television commercials. Rahul Avana is all set to make his big screen debut with 'When Obama Loved Osama'. In this interview, the actor talks about his character, how he got the wrong impression that it was an action film, working with veteran actors and upcoming projects.

What was your reaction when you first heard the title of the film?

When I heard the title for the first time, I thought it would be an action film but when I heard the narration from director Sudhish Sharma and writer Vaibhav, I realised it was a comedy. I am very much into fitness, so I was quite excited to hear the title as I thought I would get to do action in the film.

Can you share something about your character in the film?

The character I play as both serious and fun elements to it. He goes to a doctor to get himself treated but the doctor treats him in the wrong way which lead s to several complications and puts him through difficult situations throughout the film. Along with his cousin Aman, he gets into a lot of difficulties and sets out on a journey which almost becomes a misadventure for both of them.

Tell us something about your journey as an actor so far.

I have been active in the theatre circuit in Delhi since the last five years. I have worked in several television commercials. I started my career as a model on teleshopping channels such as Home Shop 18. Now, I have stepped into films.

How was the experience of working with seasoned artistes like Himani Shivpuri, Liliput, Manoj Bakshi and Hemant Pandey?

It is a blessing to get an opportunity with such veteran actors. When you get to work it such people, you try your best to learn as much as you can from him. They were almost like teachers I the sets whom we could learn a lot from about acting. It was also a lot of fun working with them.

What's next?

I am about to start shooting for a film in Lucknow. I cannot reveal its name as yet as it has not been announced. You will hear about the project soon when we start shooting in July.
