MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA AUGUST 13, 2013 01.45 A.M.
Day before yesterday on 11 August I was sitting in my study in the night and was going through the bunch of newspapers . Suddenly I noticed a front page news in Bombay Times of Sunday Times of India . It was about 150 Crore Film Club . It was an intriguing article . And it definitely was a new revelation .
Till date there are only 4 Hindi films in this club . They are :
1 – 3 Idiots = 2009 …………………………… 202.57 Crore ……… Kareena Kapoor
4 – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani = 2013 ……. 179.48 Crore …. Ranbir Kapoor
…………………………………………………………………………….. Kalki Koechlin
Earlier there used to be a 100 Crore Film Club . 22 Hindi films are there in this club . ” Ghajini ” [ 2008 ] , ” 3 Idiots ” [ 2009 ] , ” Dabangg ” [ 2010 ] , ” Golmaal 3 ” [ 2010 ] , ” Ready ” [ 2011 ] , ” Singham ” [ 2011 ] , ” Bodyguard ” [ 2011 ” , ” Ra.One ” [ 2011 ] , ” Don 2 ” [ 2011 ] , ” Agneepath ” [ 2012 ] , ” Housefull 2 ” [ 2012 ] , ” Rowdy Rathod ” [ 2012 ] , ” Bol Bachchan ” [ 2012 ] , ” Ek Tha Tiger ” [ 2012 ] , ” Barfi ! ” [ 2012 ] , ” Jab Tak Hai Jaan ” [ 2012 ] , ” Son Of Sardar ” [ 2012 ] , ” Dabangg 2 ” [ 2012 ] , ” Race 2 ” [ 2013 ] , ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ” [ 2013 ] , ” Bhaag Mikha Bhaag ” [ 2013 ] and ” Chennai Express ” [ 2013 ] .
In this exclusive club , I have 7 students of mine . They are ; Kareena Kapoor [ 4 Films ] , Priyanka Chopra [ 3 Films ] , Katrina Kaif [ 2 Films ] , Ranbir Kapoor [ 2 Films ] , Hritik Roshan [ 1 Film ] , Anushka Sharma [ 1 Film ] and Kalki Koechlin [ 1 Film ] .
Director Sajid Khan [ 1 Film ] and Music Director Shekhar Ravjiani [ 1 Film ] are also there in this club .
Thus out of 22 films in 100 Crore Club , my students are there in 14 films . It is unprecedented . And it comes to a whopping 64 % success ratio . Out of 12 actors , who are there in this club , 7 are my students . It brings my success ratio to 59 % in this category too .
But seems to be passe now . 100 Crore Club is now common . The latest benchmark is 150 Crore Film Club . And till date it has only 4 members . And hold your breath , my students are there in all the 4 films . God ! it comes to 100 % success ratio .
” 3 Idiots ” [ 2009 ] has Kareena Kapoor . ” Ek Tha Tiger ” [ 2012 ] has Katrina Kaif . ” Dabangg 2 ” [ 2012 ] has Arbaaz Khan and ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ” [ 2013 ] has Ranbir Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin .
And they are there in all the categories . Among 3 actors , there is Ranbir Kapoor . Among 4 directors , there is Arbaaz Khan . And among 5 actresses , there are Kareena Kapoor , Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin .
I am bringing out above facts with all the humility at my command . It’s not like blowing one’s own trumpet . In this field of film acting training , some acting trainers have become experts in false claims . Thus it becomes necessary to post facts for the gullible public . In this field where some acting trainers have metamorphosed into pathological liars , it has become imperative to make general public aware of the facts . So I am presenting the facts .
I know that fringe-players will cringe again and immediately start their vitriolic campaign . Upstarts will start hurling abuses . Uncouth will unfurl their flag of arrogance . Stone -pelters will be active again . And I will be subjected to choicest cuss words by uncultured and self-appointed descendents of Stanislavski . But It hardly matters .
I just posted my thought of the day , ” A lion doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of a sheep .”
I agree with the saying in toto .
VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to humbly express thankfulness .
