My 12 students appeared in 07 films , 09 students in 07  TV serials , 02 students in 04 regional films and 03 students appeared in 03 plays also . Thus total number of students working in the month of March comes to 25 . Self-proclaimed most famous acting school of Mumbai , self-annointed most famous acting institute of India and self-appointed most famous acting academy of bollywood will fail miserably on this count .

I congratulate all my above mentioned students on behalf of all the current students and staff of my acting institute  Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . May they shine in their chosen field . May , through their endeavour , our acting institute will one day become one of the most famous acting institutes of the world .
