Moments of Truth: My Life with Acting
By Roshan Taneja
From his childhood in the borderlands of what is now Pakistan, to his position today as the foremost teacher of acting – guru of acting – in India, the saga of Shri Roshan Taneja is not only the story of this remarkable man, but of India herself – vision, struggle, grit, and a never ending search for perfection.
From his thirteen years of teaching at the Film Institute of India, Pune, to today, the list of Taneja-sahib’s students reads like a list of honour – Shabana Azmi, Mithun Chakraborty, Naveen Nischal, Rehana Sultan, Shatrughan Sinha, Jaya Bhaduri, Danny, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri – these are only a few of his students from the Film Institute; when he shifted to Bombay, he guided such fine actors as Ajay Devgan, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Aamir Khan, Tina Munim and so many others.
Roshan Taneja speaks of all of these artists in rich, personal terms – but he also speaks of his struggle in the Hindi-film industry – including doing an impromptu improvisation with Meena Kumari – and, above all, his sojourn to the USA in the early 50’s to pursue his dream of learning acting, a dream he pursues even today.
