Being an actor is not much of a difficult task. If you have some great skills, then even you can become a Bollywood actor. However, there are some passing criteria which you would have to fulfill to confirm your entry.

If we talk about earlier times, then only acting skills were taken into account. But today, people look for a lot more other things than just the acting. But the best thing here is, that they are not looking for your essay writing skills, unlike other institutions. That’s definitely a relief! 😛

Here we will list down some of those essential skills for you, so that you can have a grasp on those if you wish to become an actor yourself.


Songs are a major part of Bollywood movies. And almost every movie today is having item songs and peppy numbers. So how would you feel if you are asked to dance, but you don’t know how to do that excellently?

You need to have good dancing skills today, in order to qualify to be one of the best actors. And if you don’t know that, then you will be counted amongst the nobodys.


Are you alone, or do you know anybody from Bollywood already?

Network and connections help a lot to get a great chance in Bollywood. Meet as many people as you can from Bollywood, Hollywood, etc. You need to have good professional relationships with everybody, because you never know who might become a great help in future. And for this, build networks with everybody, be it guest lecturers in college coming from Bollywood industry, directors, producers, and so on.

Don’t give up

You will definitely face a lot of failures in life. Every actor who is successful today, has gone through lot of struggles. So, if you wish to stay in this industry for long, you need to know how to fight. Don’t give up and don’t let anybody make you feel down. You need to keep patience and keep dreaming high.


Last, but not the least, acting is the father of all. While other skills give you entry into Bollywood, acting makes sure you stay here for long. And for that, it would be best if you have some formal training in this acting department. There are plenty of Institutes in India which help you in that, such as Film And Television Institute Of India, Anupam Kher’s Actor Prepares, and so on.

Join any one and ensure you are best in the most important field.
