Acting is synonymous with glitz, glamor and fame. If you are an imaginative person, a keen observer of human psyche and sensitive to the events around you then you fit the bill to be an actor. Every potential actor like you needs to chisel his histrionic skills through proper training and exposure to various forms of theater and cinema.
Qualifications: You need to be a graduate in any discipline to enroll yourself in an acting school.
Scope In India: The recent boom of satellite channels in India has provided ample opportunities for actors to perform in mega serials, telefilms, count down shows, reality shows and game shows. For those who are more interested to perform on stage rather than on the celluloid screen, the National School of Drama can be the ideal place for training. Candidates can join renowned repertory companies after the completion of the course.
Scope In Abroad: Prove yourself as a versatile actor and you are fluent in English then try your luck in "Crossover films" or in Hollywood where Indian actors like Om Puri, Nasseruddin Shah, Gulshan Grover, and other talented Bollywood artists have already showcased their talent.
