Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1190: I'm an actor in India, is that a roadblock?
You have to work with what you're given. If right now you're living in India, and want to train and work as an actor, do your research as to what's available to you. If you can get to Bollywood, it's a great place for you to start. If eventually you want to work in Los Angeles, then create a plan for making your move here. There are roles for every type on the planet (and even some non-humans although that's usually done with make-up and prosthetics).
If you don't have any training and would like to start by working on your craft, acting classes may be limited where you are, but YouTube has videos that can get you started and rehearsing on your own. Type in Acting Training Videos
