Not For Average Actors | 25 Top One-Liner Those Dying To Be Star

Priyanka Chopra-a Bollywood star
Now a Bollywood and Hollywood star who started as a small model and struggled

Do You Want To Be A Star Actor? Let Every Word Of These Lines Get Into Your Soul. Understand and Practice And Practice. You Will Fulfill Your Dream!  

1. The artist is a receptacle for emotions (receives), that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
2. An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.

3. Don't copy top stars. To restrict the artist within you is a crime. It is to murder creating life. 

4. To send light into the darkness of people's hearts - such is the duty of the artist.

5. The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves nothing. Be weird. 

6. Memory for an actor is a great artist. For everyone, it makes the recollection of his or her life a work of art and a jewel in the mental databank.

7. An "artist" cannot fail; it is always a success to be one. 

8. Performance: An actor is a painter. Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the common person.

9. Every great artist was first an amateur. 

10. Innovate! It is frequently the tragedy of the great artist, as it is of the great scientist, that he frightens the ordinary man with innovations. 

11. Failure and its accompanying misery is for the artist his most vital source of creative energy. 

12. The most difficult thing in the world is to open up and reveal yourself, to express what you have to. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things - but above all, we must dare to fail. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all~ Your Acting Coach Kiran Pande 

13. When I say actor, I mean the person who is building things - creating molding the earth.  It's all a big game of construction - some with a brush - some with a shovel - some with action!

14. I wanna be a great actor. I write my imagined story scripts in cartoon fashion using badly drawn figures and thought balloons and captions. Then I'll write descriptions of what scenes should look like and turn it over to me the artist and play 

15. I'm a cheat, a con artist which means I'm an actor. I make people believe something is real when they know perfectly well it isn't. 

16. As an actor, I must remember the artist is the medium to communicate his fantasies to the rest of the world. Let me fantasize.

17. Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the true artist works. 

18. I am no longer afraid of becoming lost because the journey always reveals something new, and that is ultimately good for the artist. 

19. The modern actors must live by acting craft and emotional assault. His gods are violent gods. Those artists, so called, whose work does not show this conflict, friction, and discord, are uninteresting. 

20. An artist must never be a prisoner. Prisoner? An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of style, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success, etc. 

21. I think that to explore the uncomfortable and the incorrect which can excite the world is the job of the artist. 

22. Yes, I know I'm a celebrity actor. When people ask how have I kept on top, I have to say with the help of my teacher -The World!

23. The artist deals in what cannot be said in words. The artist whose medium is acting does this in expressions and emotions. 

24. I really want to be associated with great projects and character driven projects and films. I have to feed my dreams and soul, keep feeling like an artist and keep being challenged. 

25. It's not fair to compare yourself as an actor to another because they all come with their own sort of preparation to the picnic for a fun. 

"I call myself an artist because everything I imagine looks real. My life till now hadn't been about finding myself. It's been creating myself"~Your acting coach Kiran Pande

9 Simple Steps On How To Learn Acting At Home

How to be an actor learning at home

How to Learn acting at home to be a Bollywood actor

1. Needs total devotion…and not an overnight job. It’s a performing art and learning is not like studying a subject of history or physics in a class of 20-30

2. To learn to act is simply to forget yourself, your style, gestures speech, behavior, attitude. Make yourself absolutely a "blank, a clean slate, an empty glass". Then only you can portray a new life, a character who is not "you". Leave your ego at the door.

3. To learn to act is to be accepted by others as an actor. Go to auditions. Fail. Go to more. 

To learn to act is to rehearse a part. Memorize jokes, mimic friends, and actors, a story or share-o-shaiyree,  perform it at parties.

4. Set a time table to go out to public places and 

This is something you can do no matter what level you are on. Take an interest in observing your friends' actions, recording them in a notebook, and analyzing them as characters. 
There are real-life, living, breathing characters walking around you every day; use them! Observe the way an angry customer deals with a waiter or in a shop.  What do you think lies underneath that? 
Observe the way your friend talks about someone who she is in love with. Have you heard her speak this way before? Do you pick up any patterns? Being able to analyze is a hugely important part of acting. You have to know what to communicate before you can actually communicate. 
Observe people say at a park or at a railway suburban/metro station, imagine scenes with stories and practice as one of the characters. 

5. Play at home that observed character and it's movements, gestures voice etc with imaginary dialogs.

Go to a zoo or watch on a road animals then imagine them standing on 2 legs and behaving and moving. Question why? Be that animal and practice behaving like that animal as if that animal has turned into a human character

6. You can watch other actors' performances and learn. See these movies:

7. To learn to act is to allow yourself to be directed by others. Join a theater group. 

8. Join work as a trainee in direction or production department in a reputed production houses, watch and practice with other actors.

9. Read these acting books 

"Audition" by Michael Shurtleff
I consider this book to be the “bible” for aspiring actors. If you are just beginning your acting career, this is a great place to start! It covers everything you need to know to get the part.

"Meisner on Acting" by Sanford Meisner
Meisner gives it to you straight on how to live truthfully in the moment under imaginary circumstances. Your library is not complete without this one.

"Respect for Acting" by Uta Hagen

Simple and straightforward, Uta Hagen’s profound book has helped generations of actors hone their craft. She introduces series of exercises to help the actor connect to the moment, fellow actors, and the audience. “Who am I?” “What do I want?” and “What is my relationship?” are three of the nine questions explored to define your character’s role specifically. Hagen also includes invaluable advice about stage nerves and how to stay fresh in a long run.

"An Actor Prepares" by Constantin Stanislavsky
This book takes the actor through Stanislavsky’s self-developed "system" which helps the actor to master his craft as well as stimulate creativity and imagination. Now referred to as "method acting," "An Actor Prepares" includes a variety of exercises and some autobiographical experiences that focus on relaxation, concentration, and techniques that will help get the actor into character. Emotional memory and the “magic if” explored in his book laid the groundwork for much of the great acting today.

"Improvisation for the Theatre" by Viola Spolin
Considered the mother of improvisation, Viola Spolin developed a series of acting exercises and theater games to free the actor’s creativity.

To learn to act is to act.

Today, Trehan is content with the way his career has shaped up and feels there is plenty of scope for casting directors in the industry

How Actors To Welcome 2017 | Kick Out 2016

Kick out 2016

I said, to hell with struggle and rejections in 2016, to hell with the past. I'm gonna make a new life for myself in 2017, not waited and kicked out 2016 today~Your acting coach

Make a terrific beginning! Join us to master acting and win in 2017

1. Create your own personal SWOT analysis. Take acting as a classic business and use it to assess your performance in a non-critical way. SWOT is a tool that captures your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. The goal is not to focus on the areas you have the greatest opportunity for improvement but to create a holistic view of where you are, what you have to offer, where you can improve, and how you can capitalize on them all. 2. Identify your “bright spots” in the previous year and build on it. Because we are our worst critics, we must train our minds to not focus only on the bad, the failures, and what didn’t work. Instead, look for the things that did work, understand why they worked well and build from it. These are our “bright spots” (the signs that things are working). They help us approach our career with a positive mindset. The thing we focus on the most is the thing we will always identify with. Choose to build on a positive platform. 3. Develop a growth "net-work" circle. Success cannot happen alone. You will need people to support, encourage and challenge you while holding you accountable. Choose your circle wisely, and utilize them to help you grow successfully. 4. Craft a 7-30-60-365 day plan for the new year. Crafting a plan in "blocks of time" that represent milestones is easier to organize, and it makes the process easier to digest, complete — and it’s less intimidating. This also helps you to focus better on what’s important and know how to structure and manage your resources and time. 5. Don’t be afraid to be flexible and of changes. No plan is perfect. So, you must be agile and willing to adjust when the desired outcome is not being manifested. Being rigid can cause you to break; whereas, being flexible, you can bend and move more freely. Don’t get caught up in pride and be afraid of failure. Remember to look for the “bright spots” and build from them while you reset and recalibrate for stronger execution. Remember life is a dynamic flow of events, and everything may not work out the way you desire. It’s how you command the moment and choose to move forward that govern your outcome. If you can master these five tips, you will be well on your way to having a more effective acting future and career.

Do You have A Poor Body  And A Sick Look?
Poor Confidence?
Apprehensive Of Audition Rejections?
Are You Meeting One Of The Prime Success Requirements For An Actor-
"A Good Body"?
Can't Meet Big Fees Of Top Gyms?

 I can Understand Your Difficulty

Don't Worry. I Have A Secret Tested Simple Formula-A Solution For Your Plight
No Gym! No Expensive Tools! No Big Space, Indoor or Outdoor! Quick Results 
This Is All It Will Take To Transform You To Be A Hunk Or A Hot Sexy Actor!

4 Minutes A Day For 30 Days! 

Before I reveal the secret and the importance of “Plank Exercises” for an actor, the truth of the matter is that in order to have a perfectly sculpted body, you need to get your food intake under control and exercise.
Spend more calories than you take in every single day. 
But one exercise stands out from the rest

"The Humble Plank"

What is a Plank Exercise?

Look the position, in the picture,  below

What is a plank to build a good body?
Simple planking pose

A Plank Exercise Pose

  • Planking (Keeping your body just like a straight wooden board) is a simple but effective body weight exercise. Holding the body (light as a feather) stiff as a board develops strength primarily in the core—the muscles that connect the upper and lower body—as well as the shoulders, arms, and glutes.
  • You've probably may or may not have seen people doing this exercise and don't think too much of it. Too simple? Well, don't underestimate the power of the plank.
  • The plank exercise is one of the most effective out there because it strengthens both the shoulders and the abdominal region, as well as the legs.
  • Planks are also useful for helping burn off stubborn belly fat. Planking builds your core muscles, and muscles burn even more calories. This extra burn makes it easier to lose weight.
  • Planking is also wonderful because it is low impact. You're very unlikely to hurt yourself and you won't end up straining any of your muscles, joints, or ligaments.
  • But four minutes of planking must be pretty hard, right? Well, the fortunate thing is that we build our way up to it. The plank challenge adds just a few seconds most days.
  • You start at 20 seconds a day, move up to 30, 40, then 45 and so on. This allows your body to get used to the exercise and helps you get better at it. The longer you caPlanking (no, not that bizarre craze) is a simple but effective bodyweight exercise. Holding the body (light as a feather) stiff as a board develops strength primarily in the core—the muscles that connect the upper and lower body—as well as the shoulders, arms, and glutes.
  • This static exercise—meaning the body stays in one position for the entirety of the move—requires no equipment and can be performed just about anywhere (well, use your judgment). Find out how to perfect your plank and fix some of the most common planking mistakes with this guide.

Standard Plank Exercise

1.Plant the hands directly under the shoulders (slightly wider than shoulder-width apart) like you’re about to do a push-up.
2.Ground the toes into the floor and squeeze the glutes to stabilize the body. Your legs should be working on the move too; careful not to lock or extra-stretch your knees.
3.Neutralize the neck and spine by looking at a spot on the floor about a foot beyond the hands. Your head should be in line with your back.
4.Hold the position for 20 seconds. As you get more comfortable with the move, hold your plank for as long as possible without compromising form or breath.

What's The challenge?
There is no challenge. Planking is very simple.

The Other Simple Positions For A Great Body

You can begin with a single position for a month, later exercising with other positions which are mentioned in the links mentioned at the end of this post
Your body will start developing within a month. However, to have a great and truly well-shaped body, continue with changing  and repeating last 2 positions as shown below:
