MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 28, 2014           00.30 A.M.

Two days back, on July 26, 2014 in the Mumbai edition of Times of India, I read about an on-line poll conducted by Times of India group. It was about the most promising male and female newcomers of 2013. The result of this poll is based on the votes received by Times of India on itimes.com/polls.

The list includes 10 female and 10 male lead actors of Hindi film industry. I am happy to announce that in the list of 20 debut making stars of the Hindi film industry, I have 04 students. Among the female actors, Urvashi Rautela made her debut in ” SINGH SAAB THE GREAT ” and among the males, Girish Kumar , Ram Charan and Hussain Kuwajerwala made their debut in ” RAMAIYA VASTAVAIYA ” , ” ZANJEER ”  and ” SHREE ” respectively.

I am posting here the article from Times of India :

Scores of newcomers enter Bollywood every year, but only a few manage to create a place for themselves in this industry where fate changes every Friday.

After considering the votes we received on http://www.itimes.com/polls and our votes, here is our list of the most promising female newcomers of  2013.

Vidur’s Open Letter – 8 : To Armaan Jain


2

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 17, 2014           00.15 A.M.

Hi Armaan,

It is nice to get in touch with you at the time when you have made your debut and your first film has been released. As I am writing this blog, I am remembering all the Sundays which I spent at your South Mumbai residence when I used to come for the classes. It was years ago but it seems as if it happened just yesterday. I particularly remember your illustrious parents; reticent Manoj Ji and larger than life and exuberant Rima Ji. Rima Ji was always nice and kind to me. Whenever I talked to her, I felt, as if I am talking to legendary and immortal Raj Kapoor.

I do remember my first day with you. It was a hesitant but confident start. I am unable to forget your child-like innocence even after so many years. Your “Rishi Kapoor of Bobby” kind of look is still fresh in my memory.

After many months, classes got a break when you started assisting Karan Johar in his film  “Student Of The Year”.

I started with you once again before commencement of shooting of  your debut film “Lekar Hum Deewana Dil”. It was a sweet surprise to watch a more confident and mature avatar of yours.

Because of this long association, I was very excited and was eagerly waiting for your debut film “Lekar Hum Deewana Dil”. And finally it got released on July 04, 2014.

I am yet to see the film. But I am getting the news that it is not doing well at the box office. As per trade circles it is not going to make its producers happy. Though it is not a good or encouraging news for a newcomer, such things do happen. And in this industry it even happened to some of our greats, rather the greatest.

Armaan, I must make you aware that the first film of RK Films “Aag”, made by your illustrious maternal grandfather Late Raj Kapoor, was also a disastrous flop. “Jwaar Bhata”, the first film of legendary Dilip Kumar , was a dud at the box office. Your cousin Kareena Kapoor’s first film “Refugee” got lukewarm response. Your other cousin Ranbir Kapoor‘s debut film “Saawariya” was also a resounding flop.  So you seem to be in an august company.

Armaan, a film’s box office run is not the only criteria of success. Though the first milestone of a long  journey is important but ultimately what matters is the completion of the journey. And your remarkable journey did not start in 2014. It started in 1929 with the release of  “Cinema Girl” and got prominence in 1931 with the first Indian talkie “Alam Ara”. Shri Prithvi Raj Kapoor starred in both the films. It happened 85 years ago. You are the latest torch-bearer of an illustrious legacy, a shinning 85-year-old saga. Just one smeared milestone is not going to tarnish the unparalleled and never seen before cinematic journey. The 85-year-old saga has found a new mascot in you and you have to be ready for that responsibility.

I have made a video celebrating the saga of 85 years of Kapoors. For me this saga is not going to be diminished by just one film. Do watch the video and let me know your reaction :

Vidur Club News Video -5 [ ARMAAN JAIN ] :

Armaan, I am happy that I wrote my first open letter to your cousin Ranbir Kapoor on November 29, 2009. Exactly after 5 years I am writing my latest open letter to you.

Vidur’s Film Diary – June 2014


2

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 05, 2014           02.25 P.M.

लो आज हम ने तोड़ दिया रिश्ता -ए -उमीद ;

लो अब कभी गिला न करेंगे किसी से हम ॥

After a dull May 2014, June 2014 also ended as a lacklustre month. From 30 / 40 students, who used to work in the Indian film industry in a month, it has now come down to 12 / 15 students in a month. It is almost half. But it does not mean that I am slipping down on the sandy, slippery path of  the tinsel town. The main reason for this whittled list is that I have now decided and stopped taking credit of the 7 years of shared, sham and shameful legacy [ August 2005 to August 2012 ] .

It is derogatory and worthless to fight for credit. It is beyond my dignity to mention names of those students, who despite being my students, don’t acknowledge my contribution in their professional lives. It is a 7-year long deafening silence from their side. So I also refrain from mentioning their names. From my side, I make them free from any obligation. From now on I don’t have any responsibility towards them and they also don’t owe me anything. Good luck to them! May they be blessed in their lives!

July is going to bring a happy news and it is going to be a month of celebration. A new film  ” Lekar Hum Deewana Dil “  is going to be released on July 04, 2014. Armaan Jain, grandson of legendary Raj Kapoor, and cousin of Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, is making his debut in the said film. He is my student. And he is not uncouth, uncultured and ungrateful like few others.
I am posting links of the 04 Vidur Club News videos. You can watch them for the full understanding of my body of work in 2014.
1 : ” Jai Ho ” :  http://youtu.be/cZzBa4sHXMQ
2 : ” One By Two ” :  http://youtu.be/0WCMfQiPdGI
3 – ” O Teri ” & ” Main Tera Hero ” : 
4 – ” Khatron Ke Khiladi – 5 ” :
