Interview with Gillian Pinto

Friends happy to share the Interview with recently released Nirmal Anand Ki Puppy Actress Gillian Pinto . 

What inspired you to get into the Theatres or in Acting ? Any specific moment you wish to share with readers ? 

Gillian - I love living the life of different characters. Being on stage makes me happy, the thrill of performing in front of an audience. The energy and the rush is indescribable. I fell more in love with cinema while shooting for my fim Nirmal Anand Ki Puppy. 

Can you brief about the journey towards being an Actress from student to this stage ?

Gillian - I have always acted in plays in school, I was even a singer and loved the performing arts. However I only decided to pursue it as a career while I started rehearsing a play in Pune - Girish Karnad's Tale Danda, after quitting my job of 4 years in an MNC. One play, led to another and then another, untill one day I got to host a travel show for a Television channel. I just got drawn into this beautiful yet absolutely uncertain world of the arts, without pausing to think or strategize or make any goals for my future. I am still on this journey of learning, unlearning, re - learning and reinventing :-)
