Someone coming from a small town of Madhya Pradesh, Acting was always a BIG DREAM for me. No one would think of going to Mumbai from my city at such a young age to pursue acting as a career, so until then I chose science as an alternative and always aimed to be a Doctor if not an Actor.
But as everyone says, ‘no one can stop you from what you want, right?’. I left everything and came to Mumbai, The CITY OF DREAMS. Mumbai is the city of opportunities, it will give you innumerable chances to live your dreams, isn’t it? It’s up to you how you encash those opportunities. It’s all about working towards your goal slowly but steadily, building the bridge to your dream life one brick at a time. First step is always the hardest. To plan how to take time out from your busy schedule, how to arrange your life accordingly, how to make you kith and kin understand your earnestness to follow your passion. But once you take that first step, there is no looking back!
I took the first step, I started my training at Actor Prepares, which was the best decision.
A lot of people think you don’t need to learn acting and I absolutely disagree with them, you can’t just show up on a set thinking that you’re a born actor. Acting school will enhance your ability to effectively engage with other people. You will learn how to focus 100% on the other person when conversing. This is crucial because your response to another character will not make any sense if you do not take in whatever they say with their body language, tone, or words.
It’s not even been 3 months since I completed my course at Actor Prepares and here, I am shooting a web series right now. How cool is that?
As the name suggests, preparing to be an actor is a vital step, and that’s exactly what you do here. Actor Prepares is a magic world, no one should miss experiencing. So, I would say if you were still thinking, just stop thinking and take the step to pursue your dream.
