“That, combined with the capacity to play emotional roles and comic roles, give the actor an edge over others. I think Mr Bachchan has that quality,” she told CS. Another quality required for good acting, according to Lillete, is truthfulness.
“The audience can pick it up if they think it looks fake. They don’t know what it is but they know it. They know when something is real. Aamir Khan is a very truthful actor. He doesn’t fake it. Even a lay person will say because he can recognise the quality without being able to define it,” she adds.
