Actor Anupam Kher has reacted to Ratna Pathak Shah’s comment about acting institutes, calling them “shops.”

Actor Anupam Kher has reacted to Ratna Pathak Shah’s comment about acting institutes, calling them “shops.” While he respects her opinion, he questioned if she would say the same about the National School of Drama (NSD). Speaking to Pinkvilla, Anupam, who also runs his own acting school, said he doesn’t feel the need to justify anything to her. When asked about Ratna’s remark, Anupam said that it’s her opinion. “I don’t have to react. It’s her point of view. Main Naseer (Naseeruddin Shah) ka bhi ek interview dekh raha tha. Woh bhi bol rahe the ki…” [I was watching an interview of Naseeruddin Shah, he was also saying that…]”. He went on to question, “I think both of them are from National School of Drama, will they call National School of Drama a shop?” he said.

Anupam wondered if the comment was made out of bitterness. He said, “So kabhi kabhi aadmi bitterness se kuch baatein bolta hai. Kabhi kabhi aadmi philosophy mein bhi kuch baatein bolta hai. Kabhi kabhi aap isliye bhi baat bolte hain, taaki woh savaal ban sake koi [Sometimes people say something out of bitterness. Sometimes they say it philosophically. Sometimes you also say something so that it can become a question].” He added, “But it is not important for me to sort of justify. What they think, they think. It’s a shop. It’s perfectly alright.”

Despite having different opinions, Anupam made it clear that there are no hard feelings between them. “I look at the goodness in people. Even the worst person will have a good side. I remember when I took my first car out for a drive, Naseer saw me and showed so much warmth,” he said.

In an interview back in 2022 with Pinkvilla, Ratna Pathak Shah had said, “We have created no trainers for actors. Almost everyone who is running a shop just now, and I used the word shop. It’s not an acting training institute, they are shops. Those guys are making money, cheating young people. I mean, the kind of stuff that goes on in these acting shops is appalling, and kids are paying lakhs for that. But NSD was not like that. So we got trained in theatre and I learnt a lot, but about acting I didn’t learn much at all.”

Anupam Kher will be next seen in Anurag Basu’s Metro… In Dino alongside Sara Ali Khan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Ali Fazal.
