UK’s first Bollywood acting school is to be opened in London this September – Boman Irani, Tabu, Anupam Kher , and Urmila Matondkar will teach at the first Bollywood acting school in Britain.
Students will enrol on a three-month intensive course, taught by Bollywood actors and film-makers.
The school will be based in the Ealing Institute of Media in the west London borough of Ealing. The establishment is a partnership between Actor Prepares, Ealing Institute of Media and regeneration agency Heathrow City Partnership.
This acting school is the outcome of increasing linkages in recent years between Indian films and Britain in terms of story themes, actors, locales and post-production activities. Several Indian films are shot in Britain every day while regional agencies offer incentives for Indian film producers to shoot and carry out post-production work in their regions.
