Milagres College students interaction with award winning cine actress Sujatha Parinje


Udupi : Acting technique is paramount to anyone wanting to be a serious actor. It’s quite easy to imitate a character or even an emotion, said Sujatha Perinje, Theatre actor, Television actor, National Award Winner.

She was speaking with the sociology students, organized by Department of Sociology, Milagres College, Kallianpur near here on Tuesday, 21st February, 2017 at Audio Visual Hall, she said in her interaction with the students that the acting technique however will help to find a character which in turn informs how you approach the text/script/written word and how do you bring the dialogue alive.

She said that the goal of a trained actor is to become a fully realised three dimensional character with back story. I must believe the character you play is truthful and not a cliché, caricature, a thin external representation of someone who barely resembles a human being. I must believe what you say is real and that you are not reciting, spouting or commenting.

When you play a character in theatre, TV or film, you should know your character as well as you yourself, so you can just exist and live. Of course that doesn’t just magically happen, nor does it evolve just from rehearsals. As an actor you have to plant those memories, anecdotes and back story, she said.

Acting comes from our attitude. We would act in society not for pointing out but to change the society as well and so need to point out. The interest of acting comes automatically. The behaviour, attitude and impressiveness will be important, she said.

Melwyn C. Rego HOD in Sociology welcomed the gatherings. Pooja proposed vote of thanks and Rosalia Cardoza compered the programme. Nalini Lecturer in Sociology present on the dais.
