Speaking on the occasion, Kher said, "I have always been very passionate about the craft of acting and education is something that makes me feel proud. I am passionate about both the endeavours and this is the reason why I opened Actor Prepares four years ago.
"Today I have students who are entering the industry with lots of confidence. It definitely is a proud moment for me. Punjab and Haryana have been great repositories of talent and it has been traditionally reflected in our film industry as well. I have always said that if ever someone was to remember me, they should remember me as an educationist even if cinema is where I have made my mark." The school currently offers a three-month long intensive, full-time professional-level course in acting. Competent in-house faculty members teach the craft through practicals, theory classes, games, exercises and extensively filmed classes.
Preity Zinta, Om Puri, Gulshan Grover and Kirron Kher are among the celebrities who have given guest lectures.
