If I were an Actor
If I were an actor, I would obviously like to step into the shoes of the veteran actor, Amitabh Bachan. To achieve his popularity would be my ambition, and the love he commands from people around the globe my ultimate goal.
and foremost, I would like to be very technical and professional. To attain these qualities, it would first be necessary to join a film Institute to get training in good and exemplary acting. What I consider most important in acting is to get the expressions right. Expressions for any given role should be perfect and, for that I think I would have to learn to step into the skin of the role I would take up. This art would be mastered by me for, I think this is the most important quality which makes an actor superb in his work. This is again as I think most difficult to achieve for any actor. Dancing and running around trees is no difficult task for anyone but, the skill of getting through an expression is most important and difficult. After training in the fine art of acting, I would like to learn and understand the technicalities of a few other inputs in a good film. I would like to dabble in direction, choreography and computer graphics. This would enable me to understand the depth of the art of cinema making.
Regarding my roles I would from the very beginning be very choosy and specific. Actually, the run of the mill role very commonly taken up by new stars would never catch my interest. Moreover, I would like to depict myself to the audience as, I would like them to take me as the individual that I am. I say this because what I have seen is that the image once imprinted on the minds of the audience never really gets obliterated. Once they take an individual actor as a villain, or a comedian or a romantic, this image is permanent. This is why, from the very beginning of my career, I would like to take up roles that befit a mature individual. My esteemed audience would always see me in mature roles, as an actor handling a role in a very mature and serious manner. I would just become the person I am acting as if to say, merge into the character I would be depicting.
These days, the mushroom growth of movies is not what I like. Every actor is involved in a dozen or so movies at the same time. This I feel is the main cause of the deterioration in the standard of movies and that of acting. I personally feel that, actors doing several roles at the same time cannot do justice to any. I would never take up more than two movies an year, as, this would give me enough time and space to do well in both my movies.
If I would follow these norms I am sure I would be able to reach the standard of my ideal, Mr. Amitabh Bachan. I would become a popular actor, a mature actor and one much sought after. This is my ambition to be achieved if I were to become an actor. I would like to leave behind me a name in the world of art and films, and not be just one of those who also ran.
