This was what the Bangladeshi model wanted to do
Priota Farelin Iftekhar is an actor in the making. She started her acting career when she first appeared in Airtel’s telefilms, “Impossible 5” in 2013.
This was what the Bangladeshi model wanted to do, she continued pursuing what later became “the Bollywood dream.”
Like any person who sets forth on a field never ventured upon, Priota too had many questions she wanted answered before embarking on her journey, a quest to become a big-time, professional actress.
“My journey started from the day I Googled ‘best acting schools of India,’ and found Actor Prepares and knew that all of my questions would be answered once I get a proper guiding,” says Priota. Actor Prepares is a Mumbai-based acting school for talented individuals who wish to pursue careers as actor-performers in the entertainment industry.
Established in 2005 by Indian famous actor Anupam Kher, the intensive professional-level course provides specialised training in acting.
To those wondering what it is like to be able to follow the steps of all those famous stars from Bollywood or even Hollywood, Priota talks about what it is like to learn how to act.
“I can now say that acting is no piece of cake. It needs hours of researching, studying, and rehearsing. Also, one needs to stay fit and be well groomed. Maintaining this balance makes acting a subject like no other.”
Priota counts amongst her blessings, the perks of getting the opportunity to meet and learn from the likes of Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski (the directors of The Matrix), renowned Bollywood superstars, and some of India’s finest scriptwriters.
“It’s surprising how I came to Mumbai unable to speak a single word in Hindi and ended up acting out a ninety nine page script all in Hindi after being taught how to,” Priota added.
“This just goes to show how great the teachers are over here. I’m very thankful to get the chance to learn from them.”
