“AN ACTOR SHOULD HAVE A FERTILE IMAGINATION, SHOULD BE EMOTIONALY RICH AND RESOURCEFUL. AND TO ACHIEVE THIS ONE SHOULD BE WELL INFORMED AND WELL READ”
‘ONE SHOULD READ ATLEAST FOR 45 MINUTES (cab a novel, a play, a short story or even news paper) BEFORE GOING TO BED’
–Nadira Zaheer Babbar
(At the best acting school in bollywood ‘kreating charakters’ June 2009)
This is a habit imbibed in our young actors right at the beginning at India’s top acting school KREATING CHARAKTERS .
Acting is “an emoting art”. The situation, circumstances, space and time the actor is relating to are all imaginary. In the whole process of ‘make belief’ only one element which is true, contributed by the actor and can never begged,borrowed or stolen are EMOTIONS. An actor has to be sensitive, vulnerable and emotionally rich . The best way to enrich yourself emotionally is by READING. Pick up plays, novels,short stories or even news paper, put your self in situation and circumstances of various characters, get affected by what is happening to them. This would contribute to your emotional depth and richness as an actor.
