“The actor should be able to create the universe in the palm of his hand.”
(Sir Laurence Olivier – English Actor, Producer and Film Director, 1907-1989)

This is a portrait of an actor shot backstage while using a computer reflecting a soft light.
It was a quiet moment contrasting with the excitement happening all around during the “Zangoora” show at “Kingdom of Dreams”.

“The joy we get as actors is out of transforming ourselves into something that’s not necessarily anything true to ourselves.
And it’s a power – not being yourself, and being in the role; it’s just like another prop.”
(Reese Witherspoon – American actress, b.1976)

This belongs to the magic backstage, when actors get ready before the show…
This picture was shot in one of the green rooms of Kingdom of Dreams.

“The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people’s reality, and eventually in one’s own.”
(Susan Sontag – American Writer, Activist and Critic, 1933-2004)

I took this picture while we were shooting a moving scene with Hussain Kuwajerwala and Mansi Sadana.
It was in Hussain’s green room during “Zangoora – The Gypsy Prince”, I kept on hiding my reflection in the mirrors and I was also trying anything in order to cover my camera’s click sounds…
I was happy to work with actors such as this amazing team with simpleness, kindness and high professionalism everywhere.

“We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility.”
(Rabindranath Tagore – Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, 1861-1941)

Sadanand Patil shaving in order to become Zohrawar, his character in “Zangoora, the Gypsy Prince”.
This picture was shot in his green room at “Kingdom of Dreams”.
Sadanand is a well-known Indian theatre actor who was trained at the National School of Drama (NSD) in New Delhi, one of the foremost theatre institutions in the world.
This brilliant actor is also one of the kindest and humblest person I met.
His attitude is a genuine lesson of modesty…
