Becoming an Actor

The money and fame we associate with successful actors should not be the motivating force for you to choose acting as a career. It is one of the toughest fields to survive, especially in India. And those who do survive do so on account of their dedication and commitment.

Acting is more of a talent you are born with. You cannot wake up one fine morning and shout:’I am born to be a model, let me be’. First think of your calling. If acting is your passion here are some places to prune your talent as an actor:
