Paresh Rawal has been appointed as the new chief of the National School of Drama (NSD). Today, Union Tourism and Culture Minister Prahlad Singh Patel congratulated Paresh Rawal on his new position.

Rawal is looking forward to this challenging job. He said, "It will be challenging but fun. I will do my best because this is a field I know very well."


One of the spokesperson of NSD, PK Mohanty, told media, "We have not received an official communication letter yet, following which we would be able to clarify his joining date in the office. The date of appointment is considered as the joining date."


Paresh Rawal's most famous play, 'Krishna Vs Kanhaiya', completed over 500 shows, and he has performed the show several times in Delhi.


This shows that the actor love theatre. While giving an interview, he said, "Actors don't want to put much effort into theatre, because they know there is no money in this medium. Earlier, people were willing and enthusiastic to work. We used to do plays from the day tonight. I have never seen that kind of atmosphere in Mumbai again." When asked if he regrets not giving enough time to theatre, the veteran actor had said, "I have been doing professional theatre for the past 43 years. I have never felt as if I left the theatre because even today, I do show. I will never stop performing on stage. Unlike films, theatre allows you to experiment as an actor, which is fulfilling. When I do plays, I assimilate all my life experiences and bring them to my performance. That is the magic and beauty of acting live. Films can provide money, but even that can't compensate for the joy and satisfaction one gets from theatre."
