What is An Acting Coach?

An acting coach helps actors reach their full potential by teaching them acting craft, marketing and promotion. Also in-depth character development for specific role preparation and/or auditioning. Acting coaches provide personal attention and specialized acting techniques to both individuals and small groups, if need be.


What is your approach to acting?

I focus on developing the acting craft and then how to market and promote this quality product created. To have an acting talent is good, but it’s certainly not all that is required. Beyond talent, there is a craft that must be shaped and sharpened over the life of the actor. This craft combines precise conditioning of the actor’s instrument (body and mind) with the intelligent work of knowing how to approach material (story, script, circumstances, characters etc.)  and what to do with it and in a scene.

How your coaching can help actors?

There isn’t an actor on the planet, from the beginner to the most gifted and practiced professional, that does not benefit from the outside eye of a trained acting tutor.  With good coaching, the actor can confidently depend on making the most powerful and effective choices and then applying those choices fully.

Do you prepare actors for auditions?

Of course! The audition is a high-stakes situation, an actor's just one chance to nail the job. I practice with an actor, on camera, all aspects of the audition right from dress, in waiting room scene, preparation of lines and scenes, confidence and entry, walk, greeting, slating, introduction, profile, where to look, enacting the scene, asking questions and finally, how to exit and celebrate your performance in an audition

Why you take private acting class?

Every actor is unique, endowed with individual strengths and challenges.  Working one-on-one allows us to work specifically with actors— the most effective and efficient way to work on an actor's craft.  Together, we determine an actor's needs and goals, and I tailor exercises and scene work to an individual.

  • I use my knowledge and experience of tested and new approaches to help an actor achieve the results you seek.
  • The Acting coach creates a secure and comfortable environment in which you are willing to take risks and make yourself vulnerable.
  • As an Acting Coach, I help an actor by giving  a student honest and sincere feedback, to enable them to establish goals with them and help students on how to achieve them.
  • The Acting Coach’s experience helps actors to avoid many pitfalls.
  • I practice with actors what I preach!
  • As an acting coach, I will listen carefully to the actor's ideas, accept good ones to applaud and tell them to create more options for better ones, if need be.


Do you mean acting schools are no good?

No, I never say that. Acting schools have their own usefulness. As a matter of fact, if an actor can afford Indian acting school's high fee, he/she must join a school and also undertake private coaching. As a matter of fact, both are complementary to each other.

But how to get jobs after an actor finishes coaching with you?

The final part of coaching comprises of marketing and promotion an actor as a quality product in a highly competitive market of Bollywood, TV Serials, commercial ads and print. This includes creating an appropriate portfolio, show reel (demo reel),website and using social networking sites and actor's resources like selecting  co-ordinators and contacting casting directors.

Where do you take your coaching sessions?

The coaching sessions are in Ghatkopar East, Mumbai in a large room under quite and comfortable environment. The venue is easily accessible within 20 to 40 minutes by local train and just a 20 minutes walk from Ghatkopar or Chembur suburban railway stations. Now, due to metro local train in operation, it's only 20 minutes journey from Andheri and other western suburbs


Last question! What about  aspiring actors with small financial resources and big dream to be a Bollywood star?

I run a free online blog, an acting academy http://bestactoracademy.blogspot.in
There are more than 120 posts on acting techniques and all possible actor resources. The techniques can be practiced in front of a full size mirror or with friends. The readers can contact me for any help through the contact form in the blog or through Email such as if they need scripts, I will send them free. Many aspiring actors who could not afford a coach or a school have read and practiced through my blog and now working in films and TV serials

  1. Sir,
    Many of us do not know the difference between an acting coach and a school. Thanks for revealing useful information. I would like to join your coaching. Please let me know the fee and registration method. I belong to a middle class family and can't afford money like 30 or 40 thousand or 2 or 3 lakhs

    1. You may join the school, but there are problems of large numbers of students, thus can not pay individual attention and the fee starts from Rs 30,00 to 3 Lakhs.

      Regarding my professional coaching:

      Salient Features of My Personal, Professional Coaching

      1. The coaching is NOT based on a typical school system where students are taught in a bunch of 20 or 30 with a common syllabus for all. A school may not be in certain situations, concerned about whether a student who completes a course gets a break in films or serial or in commercial ads.

      An actor is an artist who masters a highly sensitive craft based on an individual's emotional and attitude built up and therefore there cannot be a common syllabus. As per the survey, the failure percentage of actors passing out of schools in India is 82 (CAA survey).

      2. I design a career plan and syllabus based on an individual after weighing the strengths and weaknesses by auditions and by interviews before a candidate joins me.

      3. The learning journey of a candidate starts with understanding the "Game" of acting and how can you become a star in Bollywood and TV serials. It continues with types of actors, mastering techniques, camera acting, etc.. Finally leading to the most needed strategy development of how to market and promote yourself to get sure entry into Films, TV serials, commercial ads and print media.

      4. A hand picked list of casting directors and coordinators is provided

      5. Suitable candidates get a break in our own short film productions (http://creativefilms.yolasite.com)

      6. The sessions are taken 3 days a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 2 PM to 5 PM for 5 weeks.

      7. The fee for the entire month course is Rs.15,000 (Contact me +919920991661) to be paid at the time of booking, one month in advance.

      8. The coaching venue is in Ghatkopar East, Mumbai 400089
