It was only in1994 that Rahul finally stepped into Bollywood with the film “English August”. But real stardom came in 1999 when “Split wide open” released. From 2000 onwards, Rahul has had at least one release and that too a hit. From “Mr. And Mrs. Aiyer” in 2002 and “Jhankaar Beats” in 2003 to “Chameli” in 2004 and “15 Park Avenue” in 2005, all the films have been different and refreshing for the audiences.
