Rahul Bose

Bollywood actor Rahul Bose is known for experimenting with variety of characters and he is also a social activist working towards uplifting the society. Rahul launched an NGO called ‘HEAL- Help Eradicate Abuse through Learning’.

The actor has collaborated with Vidya Balan to support the eradication of child sexual abuse. This initiative will be supported by many celebrities from the film fraternity including Kalki Koechlin, Shabana Azmi, Karan Johar. Speaking about the intiative, Rahul Said “This is one of the causes that we do not want to talk much about but it is a very sensitive issue that needs to be addressed. And you would be surprised to know that our country is one of the largely affected countries. But what is more surprising is this is one of the issues that exist in European countries as well, so it has nothing to do with socio-economic background; it happens everywhere in the world”. He further added “Apart from conducting workshops in various schools and train people to council and help victims of abuse, we have made four ad films for our digital campaign which will be going on social media supported by many collogues from our fraternity. People like Karan Johar, Shabana Azmi, Atul Kasbekar, Vidya Balan, Kalki Koechlin, Konkona Sen Sharma, Sashi Tharoor, Anil Kumble among others will be part of the social media campaign”.

The goal of this initiative is to train, help and create awareness by reaching out to various schools, children and victims.
