ACTING TIPS, FOR YOUR CAREER IN BOLLYWOOD -36
(Through this I wish to share my insights as an actor/trainer with my students and other acting aspirants )
“KNOW THE PROPERTY YOU ARE HANDLING LIKE THE BACKOF YOUR HAND”
THE “GOD OF ALL ACTING GURUS” SAYS.
“An actor must know how to put on and wear his costume, manners of times, the ways of greeting people, use of fan, sword, cane, hat…. He can (only) do all this when he feels himself in the part and his part in himself.”
“Collected works, vol.III”
There should be a difference in the way you have a meal on your dinning table at home and a restaurant table you happen to visit for the first time. It is a new space and the props(spoons, forks and knives) you are handling are new too.
Similarly, there should be difference in the way you deal with a gun, when you handle it as a first timer or as a seasoned gun toting cop.
The “property” you are handling during filming of a scene is a “charakter” in it’s own, as an actor you should relate and handle it as one . We see to it that this habit is inculcated in actors trained by us at the best Bollywood acting school, the one and the only “KREATING CHARAKTERS”.
When on the set ask the property supplier, whether it’s a gun, a sword or any other accessories ( a book, phone, lamp, torch or any other prop) to hand you over, well in advance, so that you relate to it appropriately and look true to the moment.
