You must be thinking that how can Big B manage to perform so well for the roles like he is playing in his upcoming flick.
He was answering a similar question for his film BBUDDAH-HOGA TERRA BAAP. This actor does not prepare. He just acts and has very little faith in the ‘method’ theory of acting first propounded by the Russian actor and theatre director Constantin Stanislavsky and later popularised by Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg who trained thespians like Brando, Niro and Pacino.
We also have our ‘method actors’ in Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri, and a whole lot of new-gen practitioners of the craft who go through an intense process of preparation for their ’serious’ and ‘meaningful’ roles. Our cerebral Khan is also believed to be a kind of a follower of the ‘method school’ since he takes his own sweet time getting into his intense characters and then coming out of them.
