VIDUR Acting Institute BANNER - Training Students Since 1990

VIDUR Acting Institute BANNER – Training Students Since 1990

VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , is one among many famous acting schools of Mumbai . These days , to keep their sinking ship afloat , some upstart acting trainers are making tall , preposterous and false claims regarding their achievements ( ? ) , accomplishments ( ? )  .

In such circumstances it becomes necessary to present true picture of VIDUR Acting Institute in front of discerning public . Our Brochure is available and everything is listed there in exhaustive details , but it was printed 9 months back and it was printed in bulk , so it’s almost impossible to update it very frequently .

Therefore to appraise everyone concerned about our recent achievements , I thought it proper to establish VIDUR Club and publish VIDUR Club Newsletter periodically . It will be  available in two formats ; hard copy as well as the internet version . This Newsletter is available not only for my past , current and would-be students , it is also available for my friends & well-wishers , who now reside in the 149 countries of the world . [ The number of countries , at the time of posting this blog , are now 158 ] To verify this particular claim , you can click on the link of my FLAG COUNTER  : http://s10.flagcounter.com/more/v8O

All my old , current and would-be students , all my friends and well-wishers from the virtual as well as internet world can become members of  VIDUR Club . It is absolutely free . You have to send either your e-mail ID or your postal address to us . You will start getting your copy of  VIDUR Club Newsletter regularly in the format chosen by you .

PRINT AD

——————————

VIDUR Acting Institute has recently started ad campaign in print media . It became necessary because some unscrupulous upstarts are slyly using my name to further their dwindling , sinking career .

Ad - Film India Jumbo - 2012-13

Ad – Film India Jumbo – 2012-13

Ad - Film India Economy - 2013

Ad – Film India Economy – 2013

Mumbai Mirror Ad - May 13, 2013

Mumbai Mirror Ad – May 13, 2013

We have an enviable list of students . Their names are mentioned in the brochure and they are on our website also .  But for us at  VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , the journey doesn’t end after printing the brochure or hosting the website . We don’t bask in the past glory .

In fact …………….. for us …………………………..

The  voyage has just started ………….. 

The saga still continues ………………..

Above mentioned facts and data with photographic proofs substantiate my claim without any doubt that my success ratio in the past 9 months has been a little less than 40% . Churning out batches , training actors privately and doing Script Based Workshops , it has been a fruitful , satisfying year indeed .

The Saga Turns A Year Older


2.jpg

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           30 OCTOBER , 2013           06.00 P.M.

As I write this blog , I remember and would like to remind all my readers that I have been training actors since 1990 . In such a long journey , I took several different paths , passed through various difficult routes . I achieved many milestones . I faced some disappointments . I missed few points here & there . But overall it was a satisfying journey indeed .

My job took me , apart from Mumbai , to Pune , Bengaluru and Nashik . It took me to the sets of several big and important films . From Bollywood to Hollywood , I worked with the best of actors and directors . In the process I got enriched and got their respect and love also .

As I complete one more year of my acting training career , I posted few thoughts regarding VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as VIDUR’S KREATING CHARAKTERS on the timeline of my facebook . Today I am posting all of them together in this blog so that one could find it easily and read it . I tried to follow a pattern and posting was done as per the progression of my thoughts .

====================================================

1 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया ;
सींकचों में सिमटा जग , किन्तु विकल प्राण विहग ;
धरती से अम्बर तक , गूँज मुक्ति गीत गया ;
एक बरस बीत गया ॥
==================================================
=======================================================
2 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  A year of insult ended . A year of slander gone .

जब वक़्त पड़ा था गुलशन पर , मुझसे ही लहू का दान लिया ,
फिर मेरे लहू के छींटों से , होली भी मनाई लोगों ने ॥
=======================================================
===========================================================

3 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  A year of accusation ended . A year of allegation gone .
किस ने खेल खेला है , किस ने हिज्र झेला है ;
अब गुज़र गया जानम ,  सवाल का मौसम ॥
============================================================
===========================================================

4 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  A year of deception ended . A year of conspiracy gone .
आने वाले किसी तूफ़ान का रोना रोकर ;
नाख़ुदा ने मुझे साहिल पे डुबोना चाहा ॥
============================================================
=============================================================

5 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

 एक बरस बीत गया  A year when the minority turned tormentors . A year when the majority turned onlookers .
खड़े हैं सांस रोके सब तमाशा देखने वाले ;
कि अब मज़लूम बस कुछ ही क़दम क़ातिल से आगे है ॥
===========================================================
==============================================================

6 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  Never cried for help . Never involved anyone in my struggle .
शोर -ए -मातम न हो , झनकार हो ज़ंजीरों की ;
चाहिए क़ौम के भीष्म को चिता तीरों की ॥
==============================================================

==============================================================

7 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया  When I was threatened not to take a principled stand .
कुछ और ज़माना कहता है ,  कुछ और है ज़िद मेरे दिल की  ॥

==============================================================

===========================================================

8 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

 एक बरस बीत गया  My 23-year-old journey took a new turn .
ग़लत को हमेशा ग़लत ही कहा है ; सही को हमेशा सही बोलते हैं ।

नहीं आँख जिनकी मिलाने की हिम्मत ; मेरे पीठ पीछे वही बोलते हैं ॥

============================================================

============================================================

9 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  A saga of uninterrupted 23 years reaches a new milestone .

यह उथल पुथल उत्ताल लहर , पथ से न डिगाने पायेगी ;
पतवार चलाते जायेंगे , मंज़िल आएगी आएगी

==============================================================

===============================================================

10 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  The voyage passed through Tumultuous Tempest . Blinding Blizzard . Windy Windstorm .

कहो नाख़ुदा से कि लंगर उठा दे ; मैं तूफाँ की जिद देखना चाहता हूँ

===============================================================

======================================================

11 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  The voyage survived Quicksand . Overcame Pitfalls .
सुनूँ क्या सिंधु ! मैं गर्जन तुम्हारा , युग – धर्म का हुँकार हूँ मैं ।। =======================================================

 

===========================================================

12 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  A new hope dawned . A new dream unfolded .

नई मंज़िल , नई राहें , नया है मेहरबाँ अपना ;

न जाने जा के ठहरेगा , कहाँ अब कारवाँ अपना ।।

===========================================================
===================================================

13 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  The saga still continues !
आज जाहिल भी हैं , आलिम का लबादा ओढ़े ;
ऐसे मुल्लाओं से ईमान बचाए रखना ॥
 ==================================================
======================================================

14 – 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया Dust has now started settling down .

हटा कर तेरे सर से ताज , साबित कर दिया हमने ;

हमें अकड़ी हुयी गर्दन को ख़म करना भी आता है ।। =====================================================

 

==============================================================

15 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]

एक बरस बीत गया  YEAR AT A GLANCE

Total Number of Batches = 10 // Total Number of Students = 59

Number of Current Students Working [ Only in Films ] = 22

Success Rate of Last Year = 40.00 % [ 37.20 % Precisely ]

Script Based Workshop Done = 7 Films

एक बरस बीत गया  On the auspicious occasion of NAVAMI ; Unveiling The Insignia of Brand VIDUR
ये ज़मीन है बेवफ़ा , ये आसमाँ बेमेहर है ,
जी  में है अब इक नया आलम करें ईजाद हम ।।

=============================================================

I am happy that as an acting trainer or acting tutor I had one more very satisfying year . My success rate in 2012 – 2013 is 40% and believe me , this is unprecedented . No acting institute can claim to have such a track record .

When I say and talk about acting institutes , I don’t include Shri Roshan Taneja . As I have stated in my earlier blog , he is beyond any list . A man , who is training actors since 50 long years , is definitely an uncrowned king in this field .

I don’t include Madam Ashha Chandra also . She is my teacher and I have no audacity to compare myself with her . At least my upbringing , my SANSKAR does not permit me to do that .

But yes , when I talk about acting institutes , I do include all the other ones . Veterans and upstarts have become desperate after the advent of Vidur Acting Institute . A veteran has put up road signs with arrow mark at every nook and corner signalling and indicating his address . His inglorious and shameless disciples are making tall claims and revelling in false glory . They are audacious enough to make preposterous claims . They claim to have trained almost everyone , who are there in my student list . But despite all their deceitful and mischievous efforts , they are slipping . They are failing miserably . The beginning of the end has started for the GAALI GURUS of Facebook Acting School .

As per the famous quote of Abraham Lincoln – ” You can fool some of the people all of the time , and all of the people some of the time , but you can not fool all of the people all of the time . ”

On the occasion of the anniversary of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I thank all the eminent people of the film industry , who helped me in my long and arduous journey .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to thank all our students , friends and well-wishers  for their support and condescending behaviour .

May God bless them all !

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 14 : Anil Kapoor’s ” 24 “

Anil Kapoor made very impressive debut on TV on October 04 , 2013 with his highly acclaimed TV series ” 24 ” . It is Hindi adaptation of the American TV series of the same name , where Anil Kapoor played President Omar Hassan , the part , which is being played by Neil Bhoopalam in Hindi ” 24 ” .

Anil Kapoor

This American TV series is produced by 20th Century Fox . Till now 8 seasons of 24 episodes each have been made . The novelty of the show is that each episode takes place over the course of one hour . Another novelty of the series is the use of split screen .

Kiefer Sutherland played the protagonist Jack Bauer in all the 8 seasons of American ” 24 ” .

Anil Kapoor essays Kiefer Sutherland’s part in the Hindi version . I was eagerly waiting for this series . Main reason was the immense popularity of the American version and the hype which was created around the Hindi version . I also wanted to watch Anil Kapoor on TV .

Another very personal reason to watch the show was the TV debut of my student Adhir Bhatt . He is playing 2nd in command in ATU [ Anti Terrorist Unit ] . He called me before the premier of the show .

I am pasting the following graphic from the Wikipedia , which shows his name prominently . Only 9 actors are mentioned in this list . Undoubtedly these 9 are the most important characters of ” 24 ” .

TAKEN FROM THE WIKIPEDIA PAGE

=================================================================

When it was announced in the press that Anil Kapoor is making ” 24 “ in Hindi , some upstart acting trainers started claiming that they are the official casting directors of ” 24 ” . They even auditioned some gullible aspirants . One can visit their facebook page and can find this wrong , mischievous , boastful and false information . I watched the series very carefully , but I don’t see their names as official casting directors anywhere in the above mentioned Wikipedia list or in the credits .

These upstarts acting trainers painted town pink with the news that so many of their students are acting in the series and this became possible only because they are the official casting directors of the series . They carried this mischievous and misleading propaganda throughout the shooting of the serial . I don’t know how many gullible aspirants got impressed with this claim and took admission in their institute . After telecast of the serial , instead of many names ( as claimed by them ) , they dished out just 3  names . Adhir Bhatt is one of them . I fail to see 2 other names in the above mentioned list . Obviously , as usual , it must be a blink – and – miss role .

As for their claim about Adhir Bhatt , it should be pertinent to know that Adhir Bhatt is the student of Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor and the fact of the matter is that I trained him there .

61770_1265483016719_7182586_n

I pity these GAALI GURUS of Facebook Acting School . They are desperate to be in the race but they have nothing to show as their own accomplishments . Therefore apart from making false claims , they have now started mentioning students of other trainers as their own . Can falsehood succeed ? No it can’t ! In public arena you can’t survive on falsehood .

I have mentioned in one of my earlier blog that one day dust will settle and the scenario will be clear for all to see . Time has come . Dust has started settling down . Picture is slowly becoming clear . Soon every false claim will be exposed and people will demand answer .

I have already given my answer in the form of my NEWSLETTER . It is available in 2 versions ; internet as well as print format .

Insignia of Brand VIDUR

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I congratulate Adhir Bhatt on his stupendous success . He is doing fine job and deserves kudos for his nuanced performance .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to congratulate him .

I conclude with the famous quote , ” SUCCESS HAS MANY FATHERS , BUT FAILURE IS AN ORPHAN . ”

Vidur’s Film Diary – September 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 02, 2013          08.05 P.M.
Month of September 2013 was not of any great significance for Hindi films .  Remake of the 1973 classic ” Zanjeer “ got released and bombed . ” Shuddha Desi Romance “ from the Yah Raj Films was a sleeper hit . But the real winner of the month was an adult comedy Grand Masti ” , a film directed by Indra Kumar .

===============

Obituary :

===============

Vitthal Bhai Patel : 

—————–—————

Lyricist of Raj Kapoor’s ” Bobby ” [ 1973 ] and former Congress minister of Madhya Pradesh Shri Vitthal Bhai Patel died on September 06 , 2013 in Bhopal .

He became famous after ” Jhoth Bole Kauwwa Kate …….. “ , a song from ” Bobby “ became super hit . This extremely popular song of Rishi Kapoor’s debut film made Vitthal Bhai Patel a household name . Though other songs of ” Bobby “ were written by Anand Bakshi , but this one song of Vitthal Bhai became almost a national anthem of the youth of that time .

He wrote lyrics for other films also but unfortunately could not replicate success of ” Bobby “ .
