MUMBAI: Actor-director Rahul Bose, known to be part of unconventional films, says Bollywood lacks good writing.

Has writing improved in Bollywood?

He told IANS: "No, they are talking about this new writing is happening, but it has to be really good. Nowadays, it has to be really good. It can't be half way."

He added: "I don't want to mention any films where half of it is written well and half of it is written terribly. You can't do that. You've got to write well. Good writing is not happening in Bollywood. The good ones are happening based on books."

Rahul, who recently directed "Poorna", says as a director he can work with anyone but they have to be committed.

He said: "I will work with anybody anytime on any kind of budget, provided the film contains deep emotional thread and has something for viewers to see and walk out feeling better about life and themselves. I don't care who I work with, but they have to be totally committed to what they do."

"Poorna" is an inspiring and true story of a poor girl from Telangana who created history on May 25, 2014, by becoming the youngest girl in the world to scale the Mount Everest.
