Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez, for his directorial debut. 

Acting guru Vinod Tharani,
who has coached the likes of
 Deepika Padukone and Amy Jackson, wants to cast his student, SriLankan beauty JacquelineFernandez, for his directorial debut. 

“I know
Jacqueline very well. I know her since the time she came to Bombay. My script
has a possibility of such a character. I know about her talent and capabilities
and have decided to cast her,” he told. 

“My script
will be complete in a week’s time. I have discussed with her earlier and she
said she would love to do my film,” he added. 

Elaborating on his
script, he said it is a fun family drama.

“It is a
comedy basically. It’s a feel good film like Ferrari
Ki Sawaari
. It’s about a guy
and a girl and five dogs. I can’t reveal any more details about it as of
now,” said Tharani, who has coached many stars. 

A graduate in
microbiology, he himself trained with eminent theatre personalities like Satya
Dev Dubey, Habeeb Tanveer, Bansi Kaul and Alok Chatterjee. He worked with them
in Bhopal, Delhi and Mumbai. 

“I used to
take acting workshops when casting directors approached me to train actors. Then
directors approached me, then talent management companies approached me….and
it goes on. I don’t remember my first student’s name, but first one to become a
star was Deepika,” he said. 

“I guide them
on how to act, how to present themselves in the industry. They don’t know a lot
of thing about the industry, which I do since I have been here for the last 15
years,” he said. 

Sometimes coaching
continues during shooting. 

“Once the cast
of a film is decided, I am told about the role and I start training. Sometimes
directors want me to be there even during shoots,” explained the
35-year-old who runs Midas Touch Acting And Dance Studio (MADS) in Mumbai. 

But getting coached
by Tharani is not an easy task. Before training an actor, “I interview
him. I get to know why they want to enter acting.” 

From their mental
strength to common sense, he assesses everything. 

“If I feel
they are dedicated and are loyal to the craft, I take them on. I assess their
mental strength also because they have to face rejections in the
industry,” he said. 

“There are
lots of modelling agencies who introduce me to their models. At the end of the
day, all models want to become actors. But there is a common sense which is
required for acting and only if they have that, I groom them.” 

“Passion is
also very important. I can’t train people just because of their hobbies. You
can’t lose interest in the middle,” he added. 

Talking about his
training, he said, “I cover all aspects every day and cover all detailing.
After my training, you get to know if you are cut out for acting or not.”
