With the coming of civilizations, there have been different roles by different kinds of people in the society for the proper functioning of it, like some rule, some do business, some serve and stuff like that. For a person to imitate someone he’s not, is said to be the origin of acting, and that’s how it has progressed. Then, people starting portraying stories through acting in theaters and plays. Now, it looks so easy to fancy ourselves when we just slip into some character and speak a few lines like that. It seems very easy but the reality is, it is not. The actors who are in the industry know the actual struggle about the acting, and all that transformations they go through for the characters that they have to play.

These pictures portray what limits actors push themselves to achieve the role of a character with maximum accuracy and talent. Being body conscious they lose or gain a tremendous amount of weight for immersing themselves into the characters, like a biscuit into tea. This is absolutely commendable of how much of effort they imply to make their work look so incredible and accurate, where we imagine that it’s very easy to get into some character and speak out some dialogues, which is not true.
Actors have to undergo a lot of pressure and provide a lot of time, in the extreme locations to shoot the movies and guess what, making of one perfect scene takes about ten shots on an average to be the way it’s wanted or supposed to be. Watching movies is much easier than actually being in one, agreed?
