ANUPAM KHER TAKES AUDITIONS FOR ACTOR PREPARES
Actor Anupam Kher recently auditioned students for the next batch of his acting school-Actor Prepares-here.
The Chandigarh branch of his school was initiated with the Society for Tourism and Entertainment Promotion (STEPS) three years ago.
"I believe that acting, like any craft, can be taught, learnt and perfected," said Kher, who has won innumerable awards in a career spanning 25 years encompassing almost 400 films.
"My interactions with the current crop of international directors such as Danny Boyle or Ang Lee or Gurinder Chaddha, keeps me abreast of global trends that are emerging in world cinema and I pass on such knowledge to my students. The reason I came to Chandigarh is because I think Punjab has enormous amount of talent and it has traditionally reflected in our film industry," he added.
'Actor Prepares' has produced many of the finest actors in the film industry, including Deepika Padukone.
Apart from Mumbai, the school currently has 3 branches in Ahmedabad, Chandigarh and London.
