Mumbai: Known for playing off-beat roles, Bollywood actor Rahul Bose loves to take a stand on various social causes and says any tragedy or calamity shakes him to the core.

"I love to take a stand on social causes. My turning point was when I read about the Gujarat riots and the disaster it created. I was completely taken aback and couldn`t stand the pain of people and what they were going through," Bose told reporters.

"Any tragedy, especially to do with women, shakes me. That is when I made myself strong and thought of indulging in social activities," he added.
