My acting academy may not be the best acting academy of Mumbai or it may not be the best acting institute of India but my students are winning Screen and Filmfare Awards . It might not be the best acting school of Bollywood but it is not for nothing that 5 actors trained by me got the two most prestigious awards this year .

I congratulate all the above mentioned students on behalf of all the current students and staff of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . May they achieve much more in the coming year .

Mali : A New Battleground


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 16 , 2013           07.55 P.M.

Birth of Al – Qaeda and demolition of World Trade Centre in New York could be called water – shed moments in the history of modern world . It spawned many Jehads by Al Qaeda against the ” Satanic Western powers ” and several wars by the Western powers to safeguard the world from the ” Islamic menace ” .

War in Afghanistan and killing of Osama Bin Laden are well chronicled and thus need no repetition . But when I read about the recent attack on Mali by French army , I was forced to consult Wikipedia for the history of Mali , as I was not very much familiar with the history of Africa in general and Mali in particular .

An enlargeable map of the Republic of Mali

English: Green: Mali Federation

Location of Mali Federation (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Republic of Mali , is a landlocked country in West Africa . Mali is bordered by Algeria on the north , Niger on the east , Burkina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire on the south , Guinea on the south-west , and Senegal and Mauritania on the west . Its capital is Bamako .

Mali consists of eight regions and its borders on the north reach deep into the middle of the Sahara, while the country’s southern part, where the majority of inhabitants live, features the Niger and Sénégal rivers. The country’s economic structure centers on agriculture and fishing. Some of Mali’s prominent natural resources include gold and salt. About half the population lives below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.

Map of the successor states of the Ghana Empire, on the upper Niger river valley, West Africa, circa 1200 Common Era. These outlines are approximate, and should not suggest modern states with fixed borders. States in this era were centered around cities and strong places, with variations of influence radiating out from these points. C. 1200 on the eve of the rise of the Mali Empire, usually dated in the 1240s CE. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Present-day Mali was once part of three West African empires that controlled trans-Saharan trade : the Ghana Empire , the Mali Empire (from which Mali is named), and the Songhai Empire . During its golden age , there was a flourishing of mathematics, astronomy, literature, and art .At its peak , Mali was one of the most expansive empires in the world at the time .In the late 19th century, during the Scramble for Africa , France seized control of Mali, making it a part of French Sudan . French Sudan (then known as the Sudanese Republic) joined with Senegal in 1959 , achieving independence in 1960 as the Mali Federation . Shortly thereafter , following Senegal’s withdrawal from the federation , the Sudanese Republic declared itself the independent Republic of Mali . After a long period of one-party rule , a 1991 coup led to the writing of a new constitution and the establishment of Mali as a democratic , multi-party state .

A conflict in northern Mali began in January 2012 . On 22 March 2012 , a group of junior soldiers seized control of the presidential palace and declared the government dissolved and its constitution suspended . On 6 April 2012 , rebels from the National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA) declared the secession of a new state , Azawad , from Mali . Shortly after, the MNLA were sidelined by Islamist groups associated with Al-Qaeda, and dropped their demands for secession . The soldiers who seized power allowed Dioncounda Traoré , the President of the National Assembly, to take office as head of state in accordance with the constitution , but they have continued to wield considerable power . Plans to re-take the north with international assistance are being formulated , after which the interim government plans to hold the long-delayed national elections .

This above mentioned history of Mali is taken from Wikipedia and is being re – produced here . I don’t know what will be the outcome of this war ? I fail to forecast the future of Mali ? Won’t be able to say whether Azawad will be a reality or not  ? Will Al Qaeda be rooted out from Mali like Afghanistan or will it succeed here ? Outcome of war is not certain in Mali but it is certain that Mali will not be same again .

It is my belief that my students of acting should know the history of our country and the world .I don’t want to declare my acting institute as the best acting institute of Mumbai or the best acting academy of India and not tell my students about the current affairs of the changing world . I don’t want to claim that I run the most successful acting class in Mumbai and my students are illiterate when it comes to world affairs .

I want that students of my acting class ,  Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , should become a better citizen of India and a conscientious denizens of the world .

Through this blog I would like to celebrate the success of my students , Ranbir Kapoor , Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif , who got awards in January 2013 and are destined to rule the film industry for many more years to come .

May they shine in their chosen field .

Latest Game of Paid Media & R.S.S.


DSC01182

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 06 , 2013           11.15 P.M.

Congress , the Indian National Congress commands enviable sway over the Indian media . During olden days , when print media ruled the country , they always had their way . And gullible masses knew nothing about it . These days , when electronic media has become all – powerful and has almost become omni – present , Congress has devised a new strategy . It is alleged that a vast section of electronic media is getting paid and thus to oblige their masters they have become a mere tool in their hands .

The game started in the newly independent India . Jawahar Lal Nehru and later on his daughter Indira Gandhi , both used print media to malign R.S.S. [ Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ] . I have followed political scenario of the country since the days of Jawahar Lal Nehru , the first Prime Minister of India . Shri Golwalkar a.k.a. Guru Ji was demonized by him and the sycophant print media helped him to accomplish his nefarious goals . His designs went unnoticed because of the gullible public of those nascent days . Same was the case during Indira Gandhi’s regime . She always maligned R.S.S. and the 3rd Sarasanghachalak Shri Madhukar Dattatreya Deoras a.k.a. Bala Saheb Deoras and no one got the hint because the people of freshly independent country were still naive .

The old tactic of maligning and demonizing R.S.S. [ Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh ] is still continuing unabated with the help of pliable , sycophant and ready – to – help allegedly paid media .

Dr. Mohan Madhukar Bhagawat is the sixth Sarsa...

Dr. Mohan Madhukar Bhagawat – 6th Sarasanghachalak of R.S.S. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Mohan Madhukar Bhagawat , the 6th Sarasanghachalak of R.S.S. , unwittingly became the latest whipping boy of paid media . Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh was never their favourite but to take innocuous line from a speech and twisting it to further their nefarious designs is deplorable . It is unfortunate .

But now the days are changed . All – pervading , all – encompassing electronic media can’t be a tool of only the Congress . Through internet and various forums of social media people can know the truth and can educate others also . Gone are the days of servile media , which was always ready to help their masters . Now public can know and verify the truth . So within hours of the statement of Shri Mohan Bhagawat , paid media twisted and misquoted it to help their Congress masters , who were facing worst crisis because of the deplorable case of Delhi girl child . So Shri Mohan Bhagawat became the target . But it backfired .

People watched the speech on YouTube and twitter – handles were used to remove the misinformation . You can go through the tweets of eminent journalist Kanchan Gupta and can yourself decide . I am re – tweeting the relevant tweets :

Tweets

1. Just spoke to impeccable top RSS source. Story on Mohanrao Bhagwat’s alleged comment on marriage and role of man/woman total fabrication.

2. Mohanrao Bhagwat was speaking on differences between Western and Indian concepts of marriage.

 

3. Mohanrao Bhagwat pointed out in West marriage is a ‘social contract’. In India it is a ‘sacred institution’.

 

4. Mohanrao Bhagwat explained man-woman role per ‘social contract’ and NOT per Indian experience or institution of marriage.

 

5. A studio-edited bite has been used by TimesNow and HT to create false impression that Mohanrao Bhagwat spoke in Indian context.

 

6. Top RSS source: “The RSS does NOT believe women should stay at home and do household chores.”

 

7. There is a concerted move by media to deliberately misquote Mohanrao Bhagwat and shift focus away from real issues that hurt Congress.

 

8. Top RSS source: This is a malacious and motivated attack. Media trying to forge anti-RSS discourse by taking recourse to fabrications”.

 

9. I am told RSS has pointed out to Arnab Goswami that byte on TimesNow is studio-edited to mislead viewers on what Mohanrao Bhagwat said.

 

10. Canard and calumny about RSS nothing new. Old trick of Congress to raise bogey whenever in trouble. Media complicit partner.

 

I am posting above mentioned facts for the politically conscious students of my acting academy Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . Many Acting schools of Mumbai are blowing their own trumpet and declaring themselves as the best acting school / best acting institute / best acting academy of India / Mumbai / Bollywood . I don’t want to join the chorus . I don’t wish to declare my acting institute as the best acting school / best acting institute / best acting academy of India / Mumbai / Bollywood . I wish and want my students to become a better citizen of India . I want them to be a socially conscious citizens of this country .

Thus I keep on posting blogs on different topics .

My Association With Animation Films of India

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 04 , 2013           11.55 P.M.

Hollywood has long tradition of successful animation films . In India it is the recent phenomenon . Roadside Romeo ” [ 2008 ] , ” Arjun – The Warrior Prince ” [ 2009 ] and Delhi Safari ” [ 2012 ] are the most successful and well – known animation films of India . But they are new compared to the 100 years old Indian Cinema .

” Roadside Romeo “ was produced by Yash Raj Films & Walt Disney Company .  ” Arjun – The Warrior Prince “ was made by UTV & Disney . ” Delhi Safari “ was a film by Nikil Advani .

Though , in India , animation films are latest phenomenon , but it all started in 1974 . Ek Anek Aur Ekta ” [ 1974 ] is considered to be the first animation film of India . But the first 3D animation film of India and till date the most talked about animation film is ” Roadside Romeo ” [ 2008 ] .

” Roadside Romeo “ , technically most perfect animation film of India till date , was produced by Yash Raj Films and was written & Directed by Jugal Hansraj . Voice for the lead characters were given by Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor . Saif and Kareena are my old students . Jugal , who was trained by me for Yash Raj Films ” Mohabbatein ” [ 2000 ] , made his directorial debut with this film .

Through ” Roadside Romeo ” , I made my contribution in the world of Indian animation films also . It is so heartening .

List of Indian animated movies

List of animated TV series produced in India

  • The Adventures of Tenali Raman:The Adventures of Tenali Raman (26 X 11 min) is India’s first animated 2D television series by Toonz Animation India.
  • Little Krishna: 13 episodes 3D animated series produced for global audience by BIG Animation (I) Pvt. Ltd. and The Indian Heritage Foundation in both languages Hindi and English. Aired on Nickelodeon on May 2009.

[ I have taken the above list of animation films and serials from Wikipedia . I express my gratitude . ]

Box Office Blues – December 2012


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 03 , 2013           11.55 P.M.

This is the 3rd blog in this category .

Only 7 Hindi films got released in December , 2012 . Winter chill in the north , public outcry and support for the unfortunate rape victim of Delhi and finally new year celebrations took its toll on box office and December 2012 had frosty effect on the box office collections .

Khiladi 786 ” and ” Dabangg 2 “ were only exceptions . These two films garnered nice collections and in the final reckoning ” Dabangg 2 “ became the winner .

I am particularly pleased with the success of ” Dabangg 2 “ because it is produced and directed by my student Arbaaz Khan . Its costume designer Alvira Khan Agnihotri is also my student .

First Week – December 07

————————————————

1 – Khiladi 786 : This new film from the famous ” Khiladi “ franchise of Akshay Kumar earned 62 crores world – wide . It was made with the budget of 30 crores , so it almost earned double its investment . Thus it became the first hit of December 2012 .

This film was directed by Ashish R. Mohan . It is the 8th installment in the franchise after ” Khiladi ” [ 1992 ] . Other Khiladi films are ; ” Main Khiladi Tu Anadi ” [ 1994 ] , ” Sabse Bada Khiladi ” [ 1995 ] , ” Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi ” [ 1996 ] , ” Mr. & Mrs . Khiladi ” [ 1997 ] , ” International Khiladi ” [ 1999 ] and ” Khiladi 420 ” [ 2000 ] .

2 – 10 ML Love : This forgettable film directed by Sharat Kataria , has Tara Sharma as one of the female protagonists . She is daughter of Late Pradeep Sharma and a dear and old student of mine .

This film is a liberal adaptation of Shakespeare’s play ” A Midsummer Night’s Dream ” .

Second Week – December 14

——————————————–——–

1 – Cigarette Ki Tarah : This romantic thriller has Prashant Narayanan as one of the protagonists . This film was directed by Akashaditya Lama .

2 – Myoho : A dud of December . Myoho means Mystic Law . It was directed by Ranjan Shandilya .

3 – Four Two Ka One : A disappointing film of Jimmy Sheirgill . He is my student . I trained him for Aditya Chopra directed ” Mohabbatein ” [ 2000 ] of Yash Raj Films .

Third Week – December 21

————————————————-

1 – Dabangg 2 : It is the biggest hit of December 2012 . It is the sequel of  its earlier avatar ” Dabangg ” . Arbaaz Khan made his debut as a director with this film . This is the 5th consecutive 100 crore earner of Salman Khan . Film’s budget was 40 crore . Thus according to trade analysts it is a block – buster .

Nikitin Dhir played the antagonist and Alvira Khan Agnihotri is the costume designer of this film . Arbaaz , Alvira and Nikitan are my students . I am so happy for them .

This film also has Kareena Kapoor and Flora Saini in guest appearances . They both are my students . Thus ” Dabangg 2 “ has 5 students of mine . One super – hit and 5 students . It is heartening .
