"I believe that acting, like any craft, can be taught, learnt and perfected," said Mr Kher, who has won innumerable awards in a career spanning 25 years encompassing almost 400 films. Mr Kher is the only actor in the world who has become a teacher while still actively pursuing his career. "My interactions with the current crop of international directors such as Danny Boyle or Ang Lee or Gurinder Chaddha, keeps me abreast of global trends that are emerging in world cinema and I pass on such knowledge to my students. Today I am here in Chandigarh to zero down on the next batch of students for my acting school. I think Punjab has enormous amount of talent and it has traditionally reflected in our film industry," he added.
