Naseeruddin Shah shuns Indian Acting Schools as Money Making Business

The veteran actor of the Bollywood cinema has successfully gripped a strong hold and attained a valuable position in the industry. With major hits and National Awards in his kitty, his expertise and skills remain unparalleled. The man of substance has been a part of the Film and Theatre since last four decades and over the years, he has seen flourishing the acting schools in the country.

The actor was a student of National School of Drama before he entered film industry, but he does not feel it is compulsory for everyone to attend an acting school. “I believe that anyone who is passionate about acting can learn on his own. Dilip Kumar never went to an acting school, Amitabh Bachchan never went to an acting school, Kamal Haasan never did yet all of them are such fine actors. An actor trains himself and that is what I believe. Being in an institution is conducive to learning,” he says.

Mr. Shah learnt acting at the much-coveted National School of Drama because of his urge to learn acting. He was not exposed to acting as much as he was exposed to regular struggles of life. He further adds that acting is a natural phenomenon and it’s essential to go to training school to train oneself.
