IMAGE: Sacred Games actress Kubbra Sait salutes the teachers in her life: '#SaifAliKhan- The 1st time an A-lister applauded my art & graciously recommended me for Jawaani Jaaneman. An incredible actor who does his job with passion & professionalism, made sure to leave me better than I was when joined the job!
'@anuragkashyap10 - My FIRST teacher/mentor in school of acting & always will be. I remember him texting me, “Hi, this is Anurag.” I didn’t know it was THE KASHYAP. My reply - “Oh ok…go on then…”; it was too late to go back to Sir.
'#AjitUncle - My mentor, my Godfather who taught me how to speak on stage & speak from my heart. He even recommended me to clients who called him to host a show. It turned out to be my first-ever show on stage, I was 15! I still Thank him for transforming me into who I am today & he still graciously retorts, “I did nothing, you did it all.” with a smile.
'@_savasyucedag_ - My first boss. His biggest teaching was, “You can’t do two things at the same time. Quit the job if you want to do anything else.” I quit. I am an actor today, he is my friend now.
'@briantellis1 - I remember walking to the President of EEMA saying, “Hello, I think you must consider hosting events. You speak so well.” I didn’t know I was talking to the household name of radio & that one day we’d become friends.
'@fayedsouza - For always showing me that you can be uber cool & stand for what you feel is right.
'@ankurtewari - My Godfather in Mumbai (he feels shy when I say it). He’s the one who suggested me to Anurag. When no one knew what I was capable of, he did.
'@tessjoseph19 - For casting me in Foundation & teaching me how to audition, tell stories.
'@roshan1970 - Rosh Ba In early 2009, I met him in Dubai & in conversation expressed my desire to move to Mumbai. He asked me, "Haven’t you already?” He is Abbas, but in my life he is nothing less than Abba.
'@coach.urmi - For challenging me to keep my mind & body healthy.
'I am where I am because all of you collectively had faith in me, believed in my dreams & pushed me to work towards them.'
