There is a common fallacy, among laymen and discerning people alike, that actors are born and cannot be trained. How can an emotive art like acting be taught? But they do not realize that every art has its own nuances, crafts and techniques and it requires honing, chiseling or a genteel caress from a person who knows it all. You can become a swimmer but to qualify for the Olympics you definitely need a guru.The Indian film industry churns out 700 films annually and approximately 250 wannabes swoop on Mumbai daily in search of name and fame in films, TV and the media. To cater to this vast need, sadly, there are no authentic books on acting by a person who knows acting.To fill this void, acting guru Kishore Namit Kapoor has come out with this book. His credentials can be gauged from the work of some of his students namely Hrithik Roshan, Vivek Oberoi and Kareena Kapoor.
