‘Acting’ Career Course After 12th.

Home   /   ‘Acting’ Career Course After 12th.

Acting is a natural talent, but honing the same in a professional institution certainly helps the finer points of acting in films, TV and video shows, etc. In the early years of the India film industry, educational qualifications did not matter much. Talent was the sole measurement. Children as young as five-year-old showed excellent temperament and became very successful. Many professionals in other fields left their job to enter this highly competent area of entertainment.

In order to be a successful actor, one should possess certain qualities: command over language, clarity in expression, good voice, imagination, will to work hard, etc. Experience perfects the skill in individuals, thereby increasing their demand in the industry. At present, people from the film and TV industry organise many talent-hunt programs for the children who not only become national celebrities but are offered further training to become good actors.
