MOHALI, OCTOBER 8, 2014: The students of The Six-Month Advanced Acting Course at Mohali-based My Dream Academy, had a wondrous Wednesday. The reason was the simple, unassuming actor called B N Sharma. The acclaimed Punjabi actor visited the academy for an exclusive interaction with the students. And sure enough, the actor, known for his brilliant comic timing, subtle histrionics & mastery over underplay, more than met the students’ enthusiastic queries.
Over the two-hour interaction, the talented actor traced his journey into theatre & television before cinema happened to him. Admitting that he had not trained in acting with any university or institute, he pointed at the students being fortunate to be training with an academy like My Dream Academy. He stressed the importance of professional training in today’s highly competitive industry & also celebrated the new possibilities coming up in Punjabi cinema.
The actor, who has close to 80 films behind him, and who had started with Jalandhar Doordarshan with ‘Jeb Katre’ and who recently played very interesting characters in films like ‘Carry On Jatta’, ‘Jatt & Juliet’, & ‘Bhaaji In Problem’ shared working tips on facing the camera, preparing for a role, the importance of underplay, dialogue delivery & more. Needless to say, the students at My Dream Academy were left smiling & feeling lucky to have met & interacted with their favourite actor.
The actor promised to visit the academy regularly.
