Acting training is important for several reasons. Firstly, it helps actors to develop the technical skills necessary to perform on stage or in front of a camera. This includes things like voice and speech, movement and physicality, as well as understanding and interpreting a script. Secondly, acting training can help actors to understand and access their emotions and imagination, which are crucial for creating believable and relatable characters. Thirdly, acting training can help actors to develop their craft and hone their skills, which is essential for a successful career in the industry. Furthermore, it can also help actors to gain self-confidence, communication, and teamwork skills. In short, acting training can give actors the tools they need to succeed in the competitive and challenging world of show business.


  1. Experienced and knowledgeable instructors: The instructors should have a strong background in acting, both in performance and in teaching.
  2. Comprehensive curriculum: The program covers various aspects of acting, such as voice and speech, body movement, and character development.
  3. Hands-on training: The program offers students the opportunity to practice what they have learned through scene work, monologues, and other performance exercises.
  4. Focus on individual growth: Our acting program caters to the individual needs and strengths of each student and helps them develop their unique talents and abilities.
  5. Opportunities for performance: The program provides students with opportunities to showcase their skills through performances, recorded on camera or in front of a live audience.
  6. Supportive environment: Our acting program has a positive and supportive learning environment where students feel encouraged and motivated to develop their skills.


Our acting program graph is the progression of activities and exercises in an acting class or workshop. It typically starts with warm-up or opening exercises that are designed to help actors get into the right headspace, increase their physical awareness, and build a sense of ensemble with their fellow actors. These exercises include things like physical warm-ups, vocal exercises, concentration games, and improvisational exercises.


As the class progresses, the focus shifts to scene work, where actors work on scripted scenes to develop their acting skills and deepen their understanding of character. This involves blocking, rehearsing, and refining scenes, as well as working on character analysis, subtext, and other technical aspects of acting.




Finally, the class culminates in character improvisations, where actors have the opportunity to fully embody their characters and improvise within a specific scenario or situation. This can be a fun and challenging way for actors to showcase their skills, and it provides an opportunity for the instructor to give feedback and help actors refine their work.


Overall, the graph of our acting program is designed to build skills and confidence in a progressive and engaging manner, while also providing opportunities for actors to connect with each other, develop their craft, and have fun in the process.

Do reflect and see if you meet this criteria.


Yes, a career in acting often requires taking a leap of faith. Pursuing a career in acting is not always a straightforward or predictable path, and success can be elusive. Actors must be willing to take risks, face rejection, and persevere through the ups and downs of the industry. It can be a challenging and competitive field, and it’s important to have a strong passion and commitment to the craft in order to succeed. Additionally, it helps to have a supportive network of friends, family, and colleagues who can offer encouragement and help navigate the challenges along the way. However, for those who are dedicated and persistent, a career in acting can be extremely rewarding, providing opportunities for creativity, self-expression, and personal growth.


Kishore sir is not involved in the administration process but only in the training aspect of the program. In class, he is available to answer all your doubts and queries.

Before admission, it is difficult to meet Kishore Sir for the following reasons:

  1. Time constraints: Kishore Namit Kapoor is a highly sought after trainer and often in high demand, he has busy schedules, making it difficult to meet with every candidate seeking admission.
  2. Limited availability: He has  limited availability, especially since he is working on multiple projects at the same time.
  3. Large number of candidates: The volume of candidates seeking admission can be very high, making it impractical for a sought after trainer to meet with each one individually.
  4. Cost: Working with a mentor like Mr Kapoor can be expensive, and meeting with every candidate in person would add significantly to the cost.
  5. Efficiency: An initial screening process may be in place to determine which candidates are suitable for admission, which can be done more efficiently by a team or support staff rather than the guru himself.


Mr Kapoor is a brand name with 40 years of experience. Just like apple products are more expensive than other brands, our course is significantly better in quality and yet only slightly costlier compared to other programs. Our alumni list speaks for itself. Here are a few reasons why we believe we are worth the price:


  1. Expertise and reputation: Acting training from a reputable and experienced instructor like Kishore sir can be expensive, as the instructor is charging for their expertise and reputation.
  2. Supply and demand: The demand for high-quality acting training can outstrip the supply, leading to higher prices for classes.
  3. Quality of resources and facilities: The fees for acting training can include the cost of quality resources such as specialized equipment (cameras, sound equipment, editing tools) and facilities, which can increase the cost of the training.
  4. Location: Acting training in major cities, where the cost of living is higher, may result in higher fees for training. As you may know, Mumbai is the most expensive city in the country for commercial spaces.
  5. Length of program: Longer programs, such as full-time acting programs, have higher fees due to the increased time and resources required to complete the program.
  6. Business costs: Acting schools and trainers have to cover their own business costs such as rent, utilities, insurance, and staff salaries, which can contribute to the overall cost of the training.


We cannot allow candidates into active classes for the following reasons:


  1. Logistics: Campus tours for a large number of candidates can be logistically challenging, as it may require significant resources such as staff and transportation to manage the tours effectively.
  2. Time constraints: Campus tours take time, and a large number of tours for every candidate may not be feasible due to the limited availability of staff and resources.
  3. Large number of candidates: The volume of candidates seeking admission can be very high, making it difficult to provide a personal tour for every individual candidate.
  4. Cost: Providing a tour for every candidate can be expensive, and the cost may have to be passed on to the candidates or absorbed by the acting institute.
  5. Virtual options: However, we can now offer virtual tours and information sessions, which can be a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to in-person tours.


No institute can offer a guarantee of work for the following reasons:


  1. Competition: The acting industry is highly competitive, and an acting institute cannot guarantee work as there are many factors beyond their control that influence whether an actor will secure work or not.
  2. No control over casting: Acting institutes have no control over the casting process or the decisions made by casting directors, producers, and directors.
  3. Market demand: The demand for actors varies depending on the current state of the industry and the availability of acting opportunities, which the institute cannot control.
  4. Skill level and suitability: Not every actor who graduates from an acting institute will be suitable for every role or project, and the institute cannot guarantee that a graduate will secure work as an actor.
  5. Networking and self-promotion: Securing work as an actor often involves networking and self-promotion, which is the responsibility of the actor and not the acting institute.
  6. Unpredictable nature of the industry: The acting industry can be unpredictable, and even the most talented actors may face periods of unemployment. An acting institute cannot guarantee a steady flow of work for its graduates.


KNK Acting Institute is respected and trusted by the industry and its casting directors for the quality of training and education it provides to its students. The institute’s faculty is composed of experienced and highly qualified professionals who are dedicated to providing comprehensive acting education. The institute’s method of teaching is unique and effective which is why it is known for producing actors with a strong foundation in technique, scene study, and audition preparation. The students who graduate from KNK Acting Institute are well-prepared and confident, which makes them attractive to casting directors and agents looking for talented actors. The graduates of KNK acting Institute have been successful in finding work in the acting industry, which further adds to the Institute’s reputation and credibility.

Overall, the syllabus for an acting institute is designed to help participants develop their acting skills and prepare them for a career in the industry.


Kishore sir conducts all lectures and programs for acting. He may delegate certain activities to his supervisors but feedback and lectures are all under the direct supervision of the guru himself.


Acting is a full-time job for some actors, especially those who want to secure steady work in the industry and are able to consistently find new acting opportunities. For this reason, we want our students to immerse themselves in our program with complete dedication. We seek candidates who want to take a leap of faith when it comes to acting and therefore do not offer part time courses in the institute.


Typically, students between the ages of 14 and 35 are considered viable to apply for our program. Only if a candidate shows immense talent do we consider accepting someone older. That decision lies solely with the administrators of the institute and an exception to this rule requires several rounds of counseling and auditions.

This is because students of a certain age are usually more open to learning and we become more rigid in our beliefs as we grow older. Kishore sir believes “an open mind is like a parachute” and wants only those candidates to enter the program who are open to learning new ideas and concepts.


We only accept students who are willing to put their whole faith in this program and do not offer any refund policies. Having said that, if for some reason you are unable to start or finish the program for some reason, you can join the program again and complete it within a year of commencement of your original program. Once an application is submitted, it is reviewed by the trustees and you can resume your program once your application is granted.


Yes. If your attendance is 100 percent, you are eligible for a repeat program. You can submit your application with the front office. If considered worthy by the administrators, the applicant is allowed to repeat the course.

These are just a few examples of the many successful actors who have trained at the Kishore Namit Kapoor Acting Institute.


Yes, people from non-film backgrounds can make it in the film industry as actors. While a background in the film industry can be helpful, it is not necessary for success. Many successful actors have come from diverse backgrounds and have made a name for themselves in the industry through hard work, dedication, and a strong commitment to their craft.

What is more important than a film background is having a passion for acting, a willingness to learn, and the ability to develop and showcase your talent. If you have these qualities, you can find success in the film industry, regardless of your background.

It is also recommended to get formal training in acting, such as attending an acting school or workshop, to hone your skills and gain valuable experience. Additionally, networking and building relationships with industry professionals can help you get your foot in the door and find opportunities to showcase your talent.

Here are some examples of people who made despite the fact they were not starkids:










Yes, we have an ever-growing list of successful students. Some are working in projects right now. As it take 2-3 years for a project to be mounted and released, some of these names are yet to hit the big screen but here is a short list:


  1. Saiyami Kher
  2. Aishwarya Sharma
  3. Shrushti Bahekar
  4. Vaibhavi Shandilya


We do not offer demo classes for the following reasons:

  1. Resource constraints: The acting institute may not have the necessary resources, such as facilities, equipment, or staff, to conduct demo classes.
  2. Logistics: Running a demo class involves coordinating schedules, arranging for instructors, and ensuring that all participants are able to attend, which can be logistically challenging for an acting institute.
  3. Financial considerations: Conducting demo classes can also be financially costly for an acting institute, as it may need to invest in equipment, materials, and instructors.
  4. Class size limitations: The acting institute may have restrictions on class size, which could make it difficult to accommodate participants in a demo class setting.
  5. Program focus: Our acting institute is focused on full-time programs, and does not offer demo classes as part of our regular offerings.
  6. Student focus: It affects the focus of other students to have people sail in and out of class.


Overall, it is not always feasible to offer a demo class due to a variety of logistical and financial constraints. However, you can purchase an E-training lecture featuring Kishore sir himself. Enquire more at the front office.


Method acting is a type of acting technique that emphasizes emotional and psychological realism in performance. It was developed in the United States during the 20th century and is based on the teachings of Konstantin Stanislavski, a Russian actor and director.


Method acting involves using personal experiences and emotions to bring depth and authenticity to a character. Actors using the method approach work to fully understand their characters and their motivations, using a variety of techniques, such as sense memory and affective memory, to bring the character to life.


The goal of method acting is to create a seamless connection between the actor and the character, so that the performance appears natural and spontaneous. This approach requires a significant amount of time and effort, as actors must delve deeply into their own emotions and experiences to bring their characters to life.


Some of the most famous method actors include Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, and Meryl Streep. However, method acting is just one of many acting techniques and styles, and not all actors choose to use this approach in their work.


Here, at KNK ACTING INSTITUTE, we have taken the process to the next level by introducing Mr Kapoor’s own brand of acting training. It is a combination of the best elements of method acting mixed with a zen approach that focuses on acting as a state of play (with importance given to a more mindful approach to acting). Please note this is a totally original approach and has brought success to the impressive alumni of our institute.


Discrimination based on gender can occur in many fields, including the acting industry. Women and girls may face challenges such as limited opportunities for lead roles, unequal pay, and gender-based stereotypes and biases. This can result in a lack of representation and diversity in the industry, which can limit the stories that are told and the perspectives that are shared on stage and screen.

It is essential that efforts to address gender discrimination in the acting industry continue, so that all individuals have equal opportunities to pursue their passions and achieve their goals. For this very purpose, we have made it easier for female candidates to enter the program.


The Kishore Namit Kapoor approach to acting is an approach that incorporates elements of Zen, a philosophy and practice that emphasizes mindfulness, self-awareness, and the cultivation of inner peace. It can be summarized as follows:

Emphasis on mindfulness: Kishore Namit Kapoor style of acting encourages actors to be fully present in the moment, to clear their minds of distractions, and to focus on their breath and body.

Emphasis on self-awareness: Kishore Namit Kapoor style of acting encourages actors to be aware of their own thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations, and to use this self-awareness to create a character.

Emphasis on the use of the imagination: Kishore Namit Kapoor style of acting encourages actors to use their imagination to create a character, but to avoid getting lost in the imagination and instead to stay grounded in the present moment.

Emphasis on the importance of the script: Kishore Namit Kapoor style of acting encourages actors to study the script thoroughly and to understand the writer’s intent, but also to let go of preconceived notions and to be open to new interpretations.

Emphasis on the importance of the actor’s personal integrity: Kishore Namit Kapoor style of acting encourages actors to maintain their personal integrity and authenticity while performing, and to avoid compromising themselves in order to please others or to get a role.

Emphasis on the importance of the ensemble: Kishore Namit Kapoor style of acting encourages actors to work together as an ensemble in order to create a believable and authentic performance, and to create a sense of unity and harmony between the actors.

In summary, the Kishore Namit Kapoor style of approach to acting emphasizes the importance of mindfulness, self-awareness, imagination, script analysis, personal integrity and ensemble work in creating believable and authentic characters. This approach is known for its focus on the inner peace, self-awareness and mindfulness to create an authentic performance.


Discrimination based on gender can occur in many fields, including the acting industry. Women and girls may face challenges such as limited opportunities for lead roles, unequal pay, and gender-based stereotypes and biases. This can result in a lack of representation and diversity in the industry, which can limit the stories that are told and the perspectives that are shared on stage and screen.

It is essential that efforts to address gender discrimination in the acting industry continue, so that all individuals have equal opportunities to pursue their passions and achieve their goals. For this very purpose, we have made it easier for female candidates to enter the program.


Mastery in any field requires time. However, we have divided the program based on people’s availability and aspiration.

3 MONTH PROGRAM: The 3 month course covers the basics of acting. You learn dance, action and acting as a part of the course but it is an introductory course which is ideal if you are still unsure if this is the field for you as it doesn’t cover a lot of practical ground.

6 MONTH PROGRAM: in the 6 month program, a detailed understanding of acting along with video practicals is achieved. You leave with an intermediate understanding of the craft and a deeper confidence in your abilities.

9 MONTH PROGRAM: This is the most advanced and hands on approach for any fresher as they graduate with a deep understanding of acting, body language, mime and other aspects one needs in order to excel in the industry (which grows more competitive by the minute). One leaves as an expert with a full vocabulary with confidence in camera facing, ready to walk onto any set and conquer their dreams.


Scholarships are typically awarded by organizations, foundations, or government entities that have the financial resources and decision-making authority to distribute funds for educational purposes. An acting institute, being a training organization, may not have the same level of resources or decision-making authority. Additionally, scholarships are usually awarded based on specific criteria, such as academic merit, financial need, or community service, which may not be within the purview of an acting institute to assess and determine. Thus, it is not typically within the scope of an acting institute to hand out scholarships.


As mentioned before, we call in our ex students (alumnus) for auditions and placements as soon as we are alerted about them. This depends on the requirements of the projects under production in the industry.

In cases of certain exceptional students, we work with them in short films produced by the institute itself. Our social media platforms have a reach of over hundred thousand subscribers combined and are a solid reach when it comes to OTT platforms. 11 of our films (including a feature length film) are on platforms like Disney+ Hotstar, Jio and MX player gold.

Sometimes, auditions are held on the campus itself and some students find work even before their course is completed. This is considered an option only when it comes to exceptional students.


Camera acting is the main purpose of this course.

Even theater performers usually want to end up on the silver screen.

Though we do conduct theater classes and put up plays as part of the course, we ultimately want our actors to work in TV and movies as Kishore Sir finds movies have the longest shelf life and have the most to offer an actor in terms of challenge and fulfillment.

Film acting and theater acting are both important forms of performance, but they have several key differences:

  1. Audience: Film acting is performed for a camera, while theater acting is performed for a live audience. This affects the delivery and style of performance, as actors must consider different techniques to engage with a camera versus a live audience.
  2. Performance style: Film acting often requires a more subtle and nuanced approach, while theater acting may be more stylized and larger in scale.
  3. Technical considerations: Film acting requires a different set of technical skills, such as knowing how to perform for close-ups and how to match eyelines to the camera, while theater acting requires skills like projection and stage presence.
  4. Set design and stage direction: Film sets are often highly designed and controlled, while theater sets are typically more minimalistic and rely on the actors to create the environment and atmosphere. Similarly, film direction is more focused on camera angles and editing, while theater direction is focused on blocking, pacing, and overall stage presence.
  5. Rehearsal and preparation: Film actors typically have less time to prepare and rehearse, while theater actors often have more time to develop their characters and prepare for a production.


Overall, film acting and theater acting require different skills, approaches, and techniques, and actors must be versatile and adaptable in order to succeed in any one medium. So take your pick.


There’s good news for acting students who want to expand their technical knowledge of filmmaking. For selected candidates, we offer a 3 day workshop with our media expert Bahaish Kapoor.

You can request to review the text book that gives you a sense of the subjects that will be covered in the three days of this workshop.


Yes. The classes will continue based on a rotation basis. For example, when the last lockdown was imposed, the institute continued classes by keeping in lock step with the number of people allowed in the classes as prescribed by the government.

As things started to open up, we informed the students whose course had been put on pause and continued to work with them for the requisite number of days.

Although such an event is unlikely, we request you to be patient if a lockdown is imposed and we will continue your classes from where we left off. We do not abandon our students.


No, we do not have any other branches or franchises as Mr Kapoor thinks it is necessary to oversee the program himself.


Yes, in certain circumstances, and with prior consent from the administrators, students are allowed to stay back and practice given assignments.


We are looking for dedicated and determined disciples who are willing to take a leap of faith.

If you are such a candidate, we welcome you to our family.
