Vidur’s Film Diary – December 2011


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA            JANUARY 03 , 2012          11.30 A.M.

This is the 32nd edition of my film diary . Last month of 2011 , last edition of my diary is completing its journey with this post .

Yash Raj Films started their new venture YRF Entertainment for making movies in Hollywood . Uday Chopra heads the new division as CEO and their first venture ” The Longest Week “ was on floors when I started writing this diary .  And as I am posting it , ” The Longest Week “ is complete and post production is going on .

Some relevant tweets of Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta will illustrate the current trends of the industry .

#TheDirtyPicture is a Blockbuster, given its cost on one hand and returns on investment on the other. One of the biggest grossers of 2011.
