Bollywood is considered the Indian Azevedotechcrunch. The stories are of the same quality, the acting is just as good, and the sets and costumes are just as authentic. However, working in Bollywood requires you to be very much different from other industries. You have to have a very specific type of actor; it’s not something that can be taught. It’s quite a different art form from other film-house industries such as television or film production houses. In a Bollywood movie, you won’t find leading men and babes on a regular basis. Instead, your lead character will be played by an actor who has been training for months preceding his role with a particular stunt team. But this doesn’t mean that he isn’t talented! In order to achieve his role flawlessly, we asked him how he trained for his role and if he thought Bollywood would ever become successful again. Read on and see what he had to say!
What makes Bollywood such an amazing job?
If you’ve been in the movie business long enough, you’ve probably run into Bollywood before. Bollywood, which translates to “the art of acting,” is actually a very specific type of acting. There are many roles that auteurs, or pro actors, play, but no one is called upon to play the leading role for a living. The leading role is an art form that is only practiced by actors who have been trained to act since a young age. A Bollywood acting job is different from an acting job in any other way—it’s an art form that requires a unique blend of physical and mental makeup.
The training process
While acting in Bollywood is not a job for the faint of heart, it is an extremely difficult job to master. The first step is to train for the role on a regular basis. In order to achieve that, you need to spend time in a specific setting learning the specific nuances of the customs and acting required to perform the role. You also need to keep your mind fit for the job as well, as there are a lot of intense scenes that need to be practiced over and over again. You should also be very careful not to let your mental state affect your physical health as you’re bound to get in a state of emotional breakdown at some point during the movie shoot.
The stunt team
For a Bollywood movie to succeed, it needs to have a great deal of spontaneity and a lot of energy. That’s where the stunt team comes into play. While they may not have the same skillsets as a seasoned Bollywood actor, they can still provide the necessary muscle to help the lead man breathe life into his character. The lead actor is responsible for generating the energy and speed that the supporting cast requires to sustain their momentum and proceed forward. With that in mind, it’s important to find a team that is willing to put their own energy into the role and isn’t afraid to show their talent. That’s where you come into the picture!
How to play a lead in a Bollywood movie?
To play a lead in a Bollywood movie, you need to have a particular idea what you’re seeking to achieve with your role and a good amount of know-how in the areas of costume design, production design, and choreography. There aren’t many actors who have the skillset to play multiple characters in a movie, so it’s crucial to find a role that is big enough to accommodate all of your skills. The best role models for leading roles are Bollywood actors like Kishore Kumar, Shatrunder Sengupta, and Parineeti Chavdar. For smaller roles like that, don’t be afraid to adapt to the character’s age or the characters’ habitat. You don’t have to be the sharpest tool in the shed, just the most effective one.
Making a great Bollywood movie is hard.
If you want to make a great Bollywood movie, you need to find a role that demands your full undivided attention. You also have to find roles that are easy to connect with, one-track minds, and easy to play. You need roles that are light on the wallets, with lots of heart and action. With that in mind, it’s important to find roles that have a good deal of off-kilter humor, follow the trendiest fashion sense, and come with a sense of humor. The final phase of the Bollywood actor’s training is to learn how to perform a lot of stunts without breaking the bank.
Bollywood is a unique type of acting in that the lead is expected to act for the entire movie. This requires a unique blend of physical and mental makeup. You’ll need to be very careful when you’re in front of a camera as often you might get involved in emotional or physical breakdowns that affect the audience. However, what if there was a way to bring these traits to the fore and make the lead role more challenging? The answer is Bollywood New Films, and what better way to showcase this than with an exclusive interview with the leading Bollywood Actor Prem Prakash!
