These channels are growing in numbers and exploding with mega serials, reality shows, game shows and various count downs. All this brings in a lot of opportunities for upcoming actors to showcase their acting talent. You can also become a stage artist for which you need to complete an academic stint at the National School of Drama. There are many institutions offering acting courses all over India.
Modelling: An unforeseen boom in the ad and fashion industry has created a huge and continual demand for fresh models. Every company needs glamorous models to start and endorse a variety of products or to flash the creations of fashion designers. Moreover modelling is a very alluring field with innumerable opportunities to travel and earn handsome money. Models also get to meet people from different walks of life. An established model can get a handsome pay for every assignment they do. All these aspects have made modelling a desirable, attractive and lucrative career for the youth in our county.
Modelling can be roughly categorised into print modelling, ramp modelling and television modelling.

It is not so easy to get into this field. What is further difficult is to sustain yourself in this field for a long and a prosperous career and for that you need to have a lot of patience, a strong belief in yourself and last but not the least, you need to polish your acting skills, which can be done by taking up a professional course.

To give your career a kick start in acting you can take up an acting course, there are various short and long term courses available in several educational institutions all over India. “Well begun is half done”, therefore a good start is very important in this career and a good start doesn’t necessarily mean a Bollywood break, you can initiate with doing an  advertisement or getting a role in a TV serial, hosting a show or working in a theatre as a stage artist.If you get a break in the  film industry you should consider yourself lucky, all you will have to do is give your best, qualification will not matter much, all that will be considered is your acting skills and hard work.

Endurance and patience play a very important role in survival and growth in this field. As a model, you have to learn on the job as there is no particular training available in this field. There are very few training schools opened by former models in cities like Mumbai and Delhi. These schools train you in grooming, developing personality, make up tips and help you spruce up your self confidence. Apart from these courses, you need good links in the modelling world to get the right break to get an entry into this glamorous domain.There is no definite qualification or age limit or any type of course required to take up modelling as a profession. You can start by making a good portfolio and handing it out to various fashion houses or advertising agencies. Modelling assures glamour and good pay packages at the same time. Earlier fashion industry was one of the few industries where women earned more than men but nowadays this career has become promising for men too.
Start Early Acting: This is one talent that is easily recognised even from early childhood.

As you reach higher classes, try to get the lead role in school and college functions. Also, parents must encourage such kids to participate in various talent hunt and acting contests.  
Modelling: You must posses the beauty and charm of a model. Try to take part in fashion shows and theatrical productions both at the school and the college level. Exposure to photo shoots from an early age will give you confidence to do the same once you take up modelling as your preferred career in life.
