When we speak of actresses in the Indian film industry who have stolen our hearts with their phenomenal works through decades now, one name that we simply cannot miss out on is Ratna Pathak, now Ratna Pathak Shah after her marriage to Naseeruddin Shah. She is one of the most prominent actresses we have ever known. We know her from several movies and serials. But little did we know that her journey through the acting world started through the theatre world.
Ratna Pathak first joined the National School of Drama in Delhi to start her journey through acting and was part of the 1981 batch. She then was part of plays in not only the Hindi and English language but also in Gujarati. She has been known for her phenomenal work in plays like The Lesson, Silence! The Court Is In Session, Don Juan In Hell, Dear Liar and The Misunderstanding. She is now seen in movies like Khoobsurat, Golmaal 3 and Kapoor and Sons. However if one truly wants to see her in her true element of acting, they should see her on stage.
We hope to see more stars like Ratna Pathak emerging from the theatre world and contributing to other fields. Stay tuned with us for more updates on your favourite celebs.
