Interview For the Friday Times

In an intimate and exclusive interview for the Friday Times, Ahmed Ali talks to Ally Adnan about acting, show business, abuse in the industry, Pakistani society and the values he holds dear

You have worked in films television serials and stage plays. How have you found the three media to be different

In my opinion, the three media belong to different people. Film is a director’s territory. He can make or break a film and has the greatest control over the quality of the film. Television belongs to writers who have the time, over several episodes, to allow characters to develop fully, themes to evolve completely, and stories to progress effectively. Their contribution to the success, or failure, of a play is the greatest. Stage is an actor’s medium. During a performance, he is totally on his own and has the audience in the palm of his hands.

How are the three media different for actors

Television and film are relatively similar for actors. Theatre, on the other hand, is vastly different. One major difference is the location of the audience. In theatre, some members of the audience can be as far as a hundred feet, and at different levels. Actors, therefore, need to perform for those who are farthest from the stage and keep in mind the stall, dress and balcony levels. Performances are consequently exaggerated, larger than life and overstated. The second major difference is rehearsal. Ever since cameras have become digital and hard disks have replaced film stock, the rehearsal time for films has gone down. It does not cost money to roll the camera anymore.

What is your favorite medium

It is theatre, hands down. Nothing beats the energy, excitement and exhilaration of theatre. It is the most difficult – and the most enjoyable – medium for actors. I love theatre, but film follows closely.

Do you plan to be an actor in the long run

Acting has become a very important part of my life. I intend to continue it for as long as I can. However, I have a huge interest in film direction. I believe that I will enjoy the artistic, technical and managerial aspects of being a director, immensely. As I am growing older, I am learning more and more about myself. I know that I will always have a career in show business but feel that I will eventually move to direction.   [4] Interview Interview
