Panaji, ( IANS), Recalling his days of acting in school plays, veteran actor Anupam Kher has said that his first acting stint was pretty bad, but his father encouraged him to try his best.
Kher was guiding budding actors at a masterclass he conducted on Performing for Screen and Theater during the 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa on Wednesday.
He said, actors are not born. My first act in the school play was terrible. But my father gave me flowers in the evening to try my best.
Anupam Kher narrated his life story that how he became a successful actor. The actor spent his childhood in Shimla where he lived in a joint family.
Actor Anupam Kher said about newcomers and actors, until mistakes are made, no one can be an actor. One should not be worried about mistakes.
He said that training in acting is as important as any other field or profession. Training gives you confidence, it’s like a motor driving school. It removes fear.
He said that there is no syllabus for acting. It’s about human nature. Describing what defines a good actor, Kher said, an actor should be full of emotions, full of life. The three weapons for an actor are observation, imagination and emotional memory.
Talking about how he would like to be remembered, Anupam Kher said that the greatest satisfaction is to be remembered as a teacher.
