In my research, I ran into this list of 9 tips from a beautiful Italian/Australian television star, Tania Zaetta who managed to make her way into the acting scene in Mumbai. Here is her list of tips on how to make it in the biggest movie industry in the world.
The interview question she was asked was: What tips and inside information can you give to someone who wants to be an actor/actress in Bollywood?
1. Speaking Hindi Unless you can speak Hindi fluently, it's impossible to land a huge part in a traditional Bollywood film.
2. Dancing is an essential you could start classical Indian dance classes.
3. You need to understand the Indian culture.
4. Spend time in India to make contacts get yourself known to film makers.
5. Get some acting training.
6. The population of India is about 1.1 billion and most of them want to be a star. Perfect everything before you go and search for a job in Bollywood.
7. It's all about who you know and which parties you're at.
