    Friends, Opening an acting institute is not an easy job at least in India. First of all one needs a big name attached to ones institute. Though that big name will come on the first day of new session and on the last day of session. He will charge huge amount of royalty for using his or her name. If you are a qualified actor or director or highly experienced actor director only then you can survive in this business. But unfortunately money won't flow it would be enough for survival only. Either have contact with big tv or film personality or for whstever you are doing for your livelihood.
