Roshan Taneja biography MOMENTS OF TRUTH

Roshan Taneja

Professor Roshan Taneja is the Founder and former Head of the Acting Department at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune. He is not only one of the first, but also the pioneer and best teachers of Method Acting in India. His school, the ROSHAN TANEJA SCHOOL OF ACTING, is universally acknowledged to be amongst the Top Acting Schools in Mumbai and India.

His intense interest in acting took him to New York at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre to train under the famous Sanford Meisner & Sydney Pollack, who went on to become an Academy Award winning Director.
The experience at the Film Institute where he conducted a 2 Year course was the most enriching one for Professor Taneja. The Film Institute started in 1961 but he founded the Acting Department in 1963. It was here that he came across talents like Jaya Bachchan, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Shatrughan Sinha, Subhash Ghai Om Puri, Asrani, Mithun Chakraborty etc which he nurtured & who then went on to become acting legends in Bollywood. He carried on in the Film Institute till 1975 after which he resigned and came to Bombay to start his own institute in 1976.
