Manav dis­likes the term ‘char­ac­ter artists’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Manav Kaul (right) says it’s about time peo­ple stop ad­dress­ing cer­tain ac­tors as char­ac­ter artists.

“I don’t like the term. I think it is very de­mean­ing. It sort of puts you in a box. It be­comes dif­fi­cult to break that then,” Manav said.

He is also im­pressed at how film­mak­ers are now giv­ing im­por­tance to good ac­tors in lead­ing roles.“Peo­ple are tak­ing good ac­tors in prom­i­nent roles and they are play­ing strong char­ac­ters, not the stan­dard ‘hero-hero­ine’ ma­te­rial.”
