“You can throw away the privilege of acting, but that would be such a shame.
The tribe has elected you to tell its story.
You are the shaman/healer, that’s what the storyteller is, and I think it’s important for actors to appreciate that.
Too often actors think it’s all about them, when in reality it’s all about the audience being able to recognize themselves in you.
The more you pull away from the public, the less power you have on screen.”
(Sir Ben Kingsley – born Krishna Pandit Bhanji, English actor, b. 1943)

Backstage this dancer was warming up a few minutes before performing on the stage of “Kingdom of Dreams”.

“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…
