ACTING AS CAREER: SAMAR JAI SINGH – 4

Shah Rukh Khan…..’you become stars over night, but it takes you a lifetime to become an actor…’

EVERY ONE FEELS HE CAN ACT

Acting probably is the most fiercely competitive profession in the world, I guess because of one reason , every one feels he can act.

There was a phase when I was commuting a lot in auto rickshaws, being a familiar face on television most of the auto rickshaw walas who drove me around recognized me, to my utter surprise almost onefourth of them had this latent feeling ” agar chance milega to hum bhi acting karenge”….. why most of us feel that acting would come so easily.

If one wants to be a cricketer or a painter or a music composer he accepts the need of talent and training. No one in his sanity would think of being a champion athlete or a world beater swimmer or even a concert tabla player without having started practice at a very young age. To excel you need atleast a decade of training…..but every one feels that acting is easy, and would come naturally…it is not so!!

Way back in November of 1992 , I had attended an acting workshop with superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who was then just one film old, his precious advise still hum my ears ”you become stars overnight, but it takes a life time to become a good actor”…

You might break into tears when you have a fight with your loved ones or when you watch a tearjerker, but it is an entirely a different ball game to get those tears in a scene or an audition….. and yes! for an untrained actor it could be a nightmare.

Acting, like any other art form requires you to Study, Master and Control the CRAFT. Which could only be achieved through dedicated practice and perseverance.

So, my request is that if you desire to be an actor in the entertainment business, get your self trained first, prepare your self thoroughly.

”LUCK” only happens when ”PREPARATION” meets ”OPPORTUNITY”

Look for a trainer who INVESTS all his energies on you,who can rests his STAKES on you!!

ACTING AS CAREER : SAMAR JAI SINGH – 3

….. BIG B revealing his pencil thin arms…..
GOOD ACTORS COME IN ALL CONFIGURATIONS- tall, short,fat, skinny, handsome,beautiful,homely,awkward, old, disfigured, handicapped and funny looking. They know what they are, and they have accepted themselves. If you are fat, you are fat, if your nose is crooked, it’s crooked, if your voice is squeaky,it’s squeaky, if you are afraid, you are afraid. You are what you are. Accept that, and work towards evolving your CRAFT AS AN ACTOR.
Go fetch a DVD of ‘Pati patni aur woh'( 1978 ) and watch Sanjeev Kumar in song ‘thande thande pani se nahana chahiye…..’ unbothered by his popping big belly, he is absolutely freaking out in the song. Instead of sucking his gut and hiding what could reduce his hero image in front of the camera, he is being intimate by revealing a truth about himself to the audience. As a result he creats a very personal bond with the audience. Dosn’t he comes across as some one from our extended family. BIG B revealing his pencil thin arms, wearing a vest, unconcerned with his ill-nurtured physique, grabs and snatches off a ‘rampuri’ knife from hulking Sharat Saxena in ‘Kala Patther'( 1981 ) . The sort of power and emotions he oozes, convinces the audience that this guy would beat the pulp out of the big fella.
If you don’t keep any secrets, only then you can share emotions with the audience. What you need is to accept and reveal the truth about your self.
A legend in his own right, and Indian cinemas most treasured gift to the film makers of the west Om Puri. Imagin what he must have gone through, when he made a decision that despite of a small-pox scared face he wants to be an actor. Awesome! What courage!
If you have the will to succeed and, if you are prepared for single minded effort to hone your ACTING CRAFT, then sky is the limit.
I repeat ……good actors come in all configurations.
…..ACCEPT WHAT YOU ARE and have courage to live your dream…..

ACTING AS CAREER : SAMAR JAI SINGH – 2

samar jai singhACTING AS CAREER : SAMAR JAI SINGH “Hindu….Muslim….or a Dalit fan of Shah Rukh Khan!!”

Everyone is welcome to be a part of this fascinating world of entertainment. A nation whose social fabric is deeply rooted in discrimination on the basis of cast, creed, clan and religion. Where the politicians propel their way through the corridors of power, by exploiting this vulnerable social structure. Where vote banks are created and capatalised on to reach the ranks of athourity. In such a country have you ever come across a Hindu……a Muslim……or a Dalit…. Shah Rukh Khan fan ??

No…..you would never ever!

Our industry has an enormous unifying and integrating effect on the society. The sounds of sobbing and the bursts of laughter, errupting from the dark recess of a motion picture theater, do not carry any such distinct identity of cast,creed,clan and religion, they are all ONE.

ENTERTAINMENT TRIUMPHS,over all differences and no matter who the source is. What more! three of our reigning superstars are from minority.

And yes,we do not have reservations and quotas in our industry. If you have the talent, and the tenacity to mould that talent into your ACTING CRAFT. If you can develop the ability to engross and entertain your audience…then the film and TV industry is waiting for you with open arms.

TAKE A STEP FORWARD…

ACTING AS CAREER : SAMAR JAI SINGH – 1

samar jai singhCONSIDER ACTING…..!

Not too long ago there was a time,when youngsters in small towns and even in metros, nurtured a deep dormant dream of becoming actors some day. Many such dreams reached an apathatic end.

I vividly remember back in April 1989 I expressed my desire to persue a career in acting, my father being a medical practitioner was aghast! He immediately put me on to one of his patient who was also a close family friend, running a film-distribution business, that gentleman without mincing his words told me this is no career! Pointing out, that only 10-15 top actors can make a living out of this profession.

Twenty years later times have changed, with advent of multiplexis and numerous TV channels pouring in, the entertainment industry is growing at a breakneck speed, gobbling every promising talent around . Isn’t it the right time to take THAT plunge?

Coming back to THAT hibernating dream, which am sure still lies within many hearts, isn’t it the right time to EVOKE IT…

EVOLVE IT…

REALIZE IT…

Atleast gather courage to give it a valiant and honest attempt. So, THAT dream does not become a burden on your soul for the rest of your life.

CUM’ON…..consider ACTING!

Yours,

Samar Jai Singh. Kreating Charakters.
