We asked the Beyond The Clouds and Dhadak actor to recommend three books on cinema that every film aspirant should read. Here’s what’s on Ishaan Khatter’s bookshelf:

‘On Acting’ by Sanford Meisner

It’s the most fascinating acting book, documenting Meisner’s lessons to his students. It’s insightful without being overly instructive.

‘Making Movies’ by Sidney Lumet

A no-bullshit, an all encompassing book that covers all aspects of making movies by a master filmmaker himself

‘Bread Beauty Revolution’ by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas

It’s not a book merely about cinema, but then cinema stems from life! It’s rooted in Indian history observed by a pioneering man who mastered many forms of storytelling.
