CINTAA conducts acting masterclass with Lilliput

Acting masterclass with Lilliput

On the 26th of August 2022, CINTAA, in affiliation with writer Liliput, conducted a masterclass open to members as well as non-members, where he advised actors on traversing through each step of their career as well as improving their repertoire.

During the course of the masterclass, Lilliput talked about his love for acting that started in his school years in Gaya, how he let that passion guide him in his journey, the inspirations he had throughout his career and the things he saw change in the industry. He then related his anecdotes to the issues the aspiring actors would face in their career as well. He talked about how his dwarfism made him stronger, as he had to become able to laugh off the discrimination that he faced to be able to work comfortably among it. He also talked about observing early on in his career that it is easy to act physically handicapped, to act lame or blind for example, but dwarfism is not something an able-bodied person can mimic so easily, as there is no actual disability in most, just a smaller stature. He then asked the audience, all actors or aspiring actors to perform a given scene, and gave them each advice on how to make themselves felt more clearly.

This masterclass was conducted in the presence of members Tinaa Ghaai, Abhay Bhargava, Sanjay Bhatia and Satish Vasan among others at the CINTAA office in Andheri.
