‘Bad acting’ rules in mainstream cinema: Tannishtha Chatterjee


Actress Tannishtha Chatterjee feels one can easily distinguish between trained and untrained actors and says it is rather sad that the mainstream cinema in the country has fed the public with “bad acting.” The “Parched” star says most of the good actors in the film industry come from a solid training background but also lauds the younger stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt for bringing realism in their roles.

“What training does is, it makes you aware of what good acting is. I feel there is a difference between trained and untrained actors. It does show on screen. But that distinction is something I think in our country the ‘aam junta’ doesn’t understand,” Tannishtha said.
