Actor Sandeep Anand celebrated World Theatre Day in Mumbai through an online masterclass for the students of Thakur College. The actor who has donned the hat of a director for the first time also promoted his short film ‘Method Acting Ka Bhoot’ to the audiences.
Sandeep who was last seen in May I come in Madam has done theatre for 13 years in various languages before joining television. Speaking on the occasion Sandeep said "I am lucky enough to be a part of the Indian theatre, my first short film 'Method Acting Ka Bhoot' is also a tribute to the theatre industry. I owe my existence to the theatre. If we observe closely - Bollywood, OTT and Television have been blessed by theatre artists. Much of the wonderful content that we see today on these electronic mediums have been crafted by theatre personalities. Numerous super-stars like Om Puri, Supriya Pathak, Nasser Sir, Radhika Apte, Pankaj Kapoor, Huma Quereshi, Deepak Dobriyal, Richa Chaddha, Saurabh Shukla, Lilette Dubey, Saurabh Shukla, Nandita Das, Raghubir Yadav, Kangana Ranaut, Anupam Kher, Nimrat Kaur, Boman Irani, Ratna Pathak Shah, etc have begun their careers through theatre."
Indian theatre is one of the most ancient forms of Asian theatre and it features a detailed textual, sculptural, and dramatic effects. Indian theatre has exerted its influence beyond its borders, reaching many other countries. "As a diverse, multi-cultural nation, the theatre of India cannot be reduced to a single, homogenous trend. There is a lot of variety and difference in the same play when it is showcased in different parts of the country. Also, the language of the play also changes in various regions to suit the audiences. I strongly believe that it is the truest test of an actor as there are no retakes. I wish that the Indian Theatre audiences grow so that it again competes with Bollywood, Television and OTT content" said Sandeep Aanand.
The actor who was last seen in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai when asked as to when will his fans get to see him again on their screens said, “For me, the medium does not matter, the idea does. I am contemplating a few offers that allow me to portray something that I have never done before. The moment it gets finalised, I will be the first to announce it." Sandeep who began his career with Sun Yaar Chill Maar has been one of the most loved television actors known for his various characters in FIR, Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain, May I come in Madam. Sandeep started acting at the age of seven.
