Here's another actor added to this list. You're going to be surprised with this one. :-)
I recall vividly. It was 1993. I had just completed my 12th standard. That evening, we were watching television in our one-room rented house. I saw a man's face, unknown to me at the time.
He must've said a few other things in that interview, none of which I remember, but these words stayed with me. They made me remember his face. I didn't know why, back then.

Satyaish, What is the purpose of posting something like this in an HR forum? To my mind, it is to see whether the Acting schools are able to produce high quality actors(human resource/ talent) or not. I would say that some of the best and most successful actors are not from acting schools. This reminds me of what former Pakistan cricket captain Imran Khan(current politician) used to say in his heyday- "Pakistan has produced talented cricketers despite the system and not because of it as we have was no proper domestic structure like our Ranji trophy etc. "

I read in a book on CEOs how only 2% of the people make it to the top as CEOs when judged on the right perimeters. Whether business or acting schools, the issue is whether the talented individuals are coming because of the institute or their innate ability taking out which is incidentally the purpose of education. I have blog by the name "Make your passion your profession"- Make your passion your profession(Work prisoners and students) which reveals how people qualified for one field are super successful in another field depending upon their true interests and strengths. The education system to my mind is outdated which was brought out quite well by the famous movie "Three idiots" . Only training or skills based education and not teaching can bring out real innate potential and people's true working identity. That is putting things in an HR perspective.

You are quite right, Hiren50. Quite right about both, the purpose of this posting here and also about your views on education. We share common views. I have made quite a number of posts about the same thing, a recent one of them being this:

Roughly around the time that the previous actor I have mentioned in this list, a Gujarati, was in the making, synchronously, two oceans across the globe, in another part of the world, destiny the sculptor, was effecting its purposeful strokes into shaping another fine actor, this one too a Gujarati, preparing him, as it were, to be chosen to bring to life on the big screen, the living portrait of perhaps the most famous Gujarati ever to have lived.

In the last year, I have auditioned for and lost several parts in television advertisements and films. Thatís something I understand is a part of the journey of being an actor and so I donít get the least bit affected by it anymore.
In September 2012, I auditioned for a part in a mainstream, and reportedly low-budget, Hindi cinema (also known as a Bollywood) film. I am not going to reveal names because thatís just not going to be good sense on my part.
