Vidur’s Telly Tales – 16 : Bigg Boss Connection [ E ]


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 13, 2015           01.30 A.M.

The hugely popular annual telly show Bigg Boss is here again in its 9th season. I watched the premier show on Sunday i.e. on October 11, 2015.

 

Bigg Boss - 9

 

I found to my amazement that this season of Bigg Boss has 3 participants, who were trained by me. They are : Kishwar Merchant, Rimii Sen & Vikas Bhalla.

It is so uncanny that from Season – 1 to Season – 6, there were 2 students of mine as participants in every season.

Season – 7 had 3 students of mine as participants.

Season – 8 had the maximum students. There were 5 participants.

Now Season – 9 again has 3 students, like season 7.

There is just one regret. No student of mine were able to get the coveted title. Karishma Tanna was the only student, who became the 1st RUNNER UP in the 8th season.

B B - 8

Here is the complete list of all the participants.

Bigg Boss – Season – 1 : Amit Sadh / Ragini Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 2 : Monica Bedi / Zulfi Syed

Bigg Boss – Season – 3 : Aditi Govitrikar / Shamita Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 4 : Ashmit Patel / Samir Soni

Bigg Boss – Season – 5 : Mahek Chahal / Amar Upadhyay

Bigg Boss – Season – 6 : Niketan Madhok / Karishma Kotak

Bigg Boss – Season – 7 : Tanishaa Mukerji / Hazel Keech / Apurva Agnihotri

But ” Bigg Boss – Season 8 “ surpasses all the other seasons. It has 5 participants who are my students :

Bigg Boss – Season – 8 : Karishma Tanna / Minissha Lamba / Aarya Babbar / Pritam Pyaare / Upen Patel

Bigg Boss – Season – 9 : Kishwar Merchant / Rimii Sen / Vikas Bhalla

Thus total number of students, who participated in previous seasons of Bigg Boss and are there in the current 9th season , comes to 23. 

I challenge all the acting institutes, including ” Facebook Acting Institute ” , who love to shout from the housetop, to come out with their data regarding Bigg Boss Seasons. I don’t think I will get any response. There is deafening silence as usual.

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 ” .

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 Telly Tales – 13 : Bigg Boss Connection [ C ]


2.jpg

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 16 , 2013           00.45 A.M.

This is my 3rd blog about my ” Bigg Boss “ connection .

This year’s ” Bigg Boss “ is starting fifteen days earlier than the previous seasons . ” Bigg Boss “ , a reality show , is based on the original Dutch ” Big Brother “ format developed by John de Mol . The show is hosted by Salman Khan.

Location of different versions of Big Brother

I wrote 1st blog about ” Bigg Boss – Season 5 “ on October 04 , 2011 . I wrote 2nd blog about ” Bigg Boss “ on October 09 , 2012 , when ” Bigg Boss – Season – 6 “ started on Colors on October 07 , 2012 .

I had written that I feel extremely proud and humbled that from Season 1 to Season 6 , each season of  ” Bigg Boss “ had 2 students of mine as participants .

I am giving the complete list of my students , who have participated in the show :

Bigg Boss – Season – 1 : Amit Sadh / Ragini Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 2 : Monica Bedi / Zulfi Syed

Bigg Boss – Season – 3 : Aditi Govitrikar / Shamita Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 4 : Ashmit Patel / Samir Soni

Bigg Boss – Season – 5 : Mahek Chahal / Amar Upadhyay

Bigg Boss – Season – 6 : Niketan Madhok / Karishma Kotak

I can say with utmost pride and a feeling of accomplishment that till now my 12 students have participated in 6 seasons .

I just finished watching opening episode of ” Bigg Boss – Season 7 “ . I was surprised to see my 3 students in the current season of the show . They are :

Bigg Boss – Season – 7 : Tanishaa Mukerji / Hazel Keech / Apurva Agnihotri

Hazel Keech in Atul Agnihotri's Office During Workshop of " Bodyguard "

Hazel Keech in Atul Agnihotri’s Office During Workshop of ” Bodyguard “

Thus total number of my students , who participated in all the 7 seasons of ” Bigg Boss “ , is 15 . I am thankful to all my 15 students for making me proud .

For me it is time to rejoice . But for some it is time to start abusive campaign all over again . There are Acting Gurus in Mumbai and there are some Gaali Gurus in Mumbai . Acting Gurus train actors , who act in films and participate in big shows like ” Bigg Boss “ . Gaali Gurus hurl abuses and train students , who become brokers . They roam around in search of prey and hoodwink gullible students to take admission in the Facebook Acting School of these Gaali Gurus .

But without them life would be boring . The dull and dreary life of an Acting Guru becomes full of fun when Gaali Gurus are around with choicest cuss words . So waiting for fresh round of abuses from the Gaali Gurus of the Facebook Acting School .

FULL EDITNG STUDIO

NEWS LETTER

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I congratulate all the above mentioned participants of ” Bigg Boss “ , specially the current 3 participants .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to wish them well in their endeavour to win the coveted title of ” Bigg Boss – Season 7 ” .

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 12 : ” Ramleela – Ajay Devgn Ke Saath ”


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 30 , 2012           01.15 A.M.

” Ramleela – Ajay Devgn Ke Saath “  was the brand new show on Life OK , which just got finished . It was very unique concept . It encapsulated the whole story of Bhagwan Ram in just 5 episodes . Ajay Devgn is the narrator of the show .

In the first episode , he tells us about Bhagwan Ram and the Ramleela starts with Maharshi Vishwamitra‘s Ashram . From there , story meanders through several anecdotes of Bhagwan Ram’s life and first episode ends when Bhagwan Ram is banished from his capital Ayodhya to forest for 14 years .

After this rest of the story got finished in remaining 4 episodes . This show attracted me because Rajnish Duggal was playing Ram . I was intrigued . I have seen several actors essaying role of Bhagwan Ram . From Prem Adib in ” Ram Rajya “ to Arun Govil in TV serial Ramayan , I have seen them all . Rajnish Duggal is the new Ram on-screen . So I was curious .

He was very impressive and impressed me as the mythical Ram . He looked regal and powerful . He enacted the role with the required finesse and panache .

He is my old student and his respect and regard for me is unbelievable . I always follow his career and he seeks my advice if the need arises . From Vikram Bhatt‘s ” 1920 “ to Wizcraft’s ” Ramleela – Ajay Devgn Ke Saath “ , it’s a long and very fruitful journey for him . I am happy for his success .

My son Raunak Chaturvedi also did two small roles in the serial . In the first episode he appeared as announcer of Mithila , the kingdom of Maharaja Janak . After this he appeared in the Sanjeevani Booti episode as one of the mountains . With these small roles , he took baby step in the world of cinema .

Raunak Chaturvedi

Raunak Chaturvedi

An innocuous serial became important for me because of Rajnish Duggal and my son . It was a well – made serial and special effects were mind-blowing . Wizcraft should be congratulated for this unique show .

I , along with my acting institute Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , congratulate Rajnish Duggal and Wizcraft for this magnificent concept and imaginative show on television . I am also happy for my son that he got this role without my help . It is his own success . A beautiful journey of his life has started with this baby step .

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 11 : Finding Gauri Bhosle


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 24 , 2012           00.05 A.M.

One day I woke up in the morning and saw an ad in the news papers about some Gauri Bhosle , who was missing from her London home . I was intrigued because the face seemed familiar . Within few seconds I recognized the face . The girl Gauri Bhosle was none other than my student Mrunal Thakur .

With Mrunal Thakur / Gauri Bhosle

With Mrunal Thakur / Gauri Bhosle

It then occurred to me that this is not an ad for a missing person but an ad for the coming serial ” Khamoshiyan “ . Mrunal Thakur is playing main female protagonist named Gauri Bhosle in ” Khamoshiyan “ , which is currently being aired on Star Plus .

The serial is being produced by Sai Deodhar and her husband Shakti Anand . Incidentally Sai Deodhar is herself my old student . Sai is herself a fabulous actor but this time she decided to remain behind the camera .

With Sai Deodhar

With Sai Deodhar

Before the commencement of shooting , Mrunal Thakur was sent to me for training by Sai Deodhar . I must say that Mrunal is very hard-working , dedicated and sincere student . She used to attend morning and evening both the batches because there was not much time available and she had to prepare her complex character within the short time .

Before the start of the shooting of  ” Khamoshiyan ” , I had to go to Manali to train Kalki Koechlin for Dharma Production’s up – coming venture ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ” . One day I got a call from Mrunal Thakur . She called me to inform that she is starting a new journey of her life and she needs my blessings . I was overwhelmed . There was no need of this gesture . A tutor always blesses his students . It was so sweet of her to call me and seek my blessings . In today’s time when few aggrieved students refuse to acknowledge me , when they openly make a statement that I know nothing , that I am not a good trainer , this gesture of Mrunal Thakur stands tall and is very humbling . It shows that she got good upbringing from her parents . She is not like some of the wannabe zombies who are disrespectful to me and thus show their poor ,  shameful and abominable upbringing .

I am happy for Mrunal Thakur and wish her all the success in life . I , along with the staff and students of my acting institute , Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , congratulate her and bless her .

May God give her all the success she deserves in life !!

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 10 : 20 Years of ZEE TV


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 16 , 2012           00.35 A.M.

I came to Mumbai in 1989 . It was October 1989 precisely . That era belonged to Doordarshan a.k.a. DD . Fresh from the success of serials like ;  ” Ramayan ” and ” Mahabharat “ , DD almost became omni – present . It’s all – pervading reach in India was unparalleled . For audience , it dished out various other popular programmes but there was clamour for more . Zee TV was the first to fill the void .

It was India’s first satellite channel . It was launched in October 1992 with 3 hours of prime time programming . It started with some immensely popular non – fiction shows .

SAANP SEEDI [ 1992 ] : This show was hosted by Mohan Kapoor . It was based on the famous game for kids .

ANTAKSHIRI [ 1993 ] : This show was hosted by Anu Kapoor along with Renuka Shahane and some others .

KHANA KHAZANA [ 1993 ] : Its 15 years run is unparalleled .

AAP KI ADALAT [ 1993 ] : This Rajat Sharma anchored show was a trend setter . It was a must – watch on Sundays .

SA RE GA MA PA [ 1995 ] : It is one of the Zee TV’s longest running show . Its several seasons spread over almost 18 years .

DANCE INDIA DANCE [ 2009 ] : In the last 3 years it became one of the biggest and most succesful non – fiction show .

INDIA’S MOST WANTED : It is the new non – fiction show of Zee TV .

Apart from above mentioned non – fiction shows , Zee TV became a trend – setter with some of its fiction shows also .

TARA [ 1993 ] : This woman oriented show was first of its kind and it ran for almost 5 years . This Raman Kumar and Vinita Nanda show is considered a trend – setter even today . It was very bold for its time .

BANEGI APNI BAAT [ 1993 ] : It ran for 4 years and is the longest running weekly show on satellite channel .

PARAMPARA [ 1993 ] : Mohan Bhandari played main lead in this family drama .

ZEE HORROR SHOW [ 1993 ] : first of its kind , the show was hugely popular .

CAMPUS [ 1994 ] : This weekly college based serial revolved around the teacher and students .

HUM PAANCH [ 1995 ] : This Ekta Kapoor show will always be remembered because it is longest running weekly comedy show and Vidya Balan played one of the sisters .

SAILAAB [ 1995 ] : It was a shocker of its time because of its story of extra – marital affair .

AMANAT [ 1997 ] : It was the first family drama which was hit and set trend for the future family dramas .

Apart from above mentioned hugely successful shows , Zee TV’s recent shows are also very popular . They are ; SAATH PHERE , JHANSI KI RANI , AGLE JANAM MOHE BITIYA HI KIJO and PAVITRA RISHTA .

Initially Zee was number one but lost its numero Uno position to Star Plus when the latter came with ” Kaun Banega Crorepati “ .  Zee TV’s current position oscillates between no. 2 and no. 3 . But there no denying the fact that Zee was a trend – setter and should be congratulated for that .

 

Several of my students had featured in various shows of Zee . I congratulate Zee TV on behalf of all the students and staff of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters .

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 9 : Bigg Boss Connection [ B ]


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 09, 2012           01.45 A.M.

Bigg Boss – Season 6 started on October 07, 2012 on Colors . When Bigg Boss – Season 5 started , I immediately posted my first blog about my Bigg Boss connection on October 04, 2011 . I have mentioned in that blog that barring Season – 5 , which has only one student Mahek Chahal , all the other seasons had two students of mine as participants . Here is the list , which I had posted at that time :

Bigg Boss – Season – 1 : Amit Sadh / Ragini Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 2 : Monica Bedi / Zulfi Syed

Bigg Boss – Season – 3 : Aditi Govitrikar / Shamita Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 4 : Ashmit Patel / Samir Soni

Bigg Boss – Season – 5 : Mahek Chahal

But later on Amar Upadhyay joined the inmates of Season – 5 and this Season too had two students .

I was eagerly waiting for Season – 6 to start and when I watched the opening episode , I was overjoyed that this Season – 6 also has two students . They are Niketan Madhok and Karishma Kotak . Now the revised list is :

Bigg Boss – Season – 1 : Amit Sadh / Ragini Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 2 : Monica Bedi / Zulfi Syed

Bigg Boss – Season – 3 : Aditi Govitrikar / Shamita Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 4 : Ashmit Patel / Samir Soni

Bigg Boss – Season – 5 : Mahek Chahal / Amar Upadhyay

Bigg Boss – Season – 6 : Niketan Madhok / Karishma Kotak

I thought , isn’t it uncanny ? Isn’t it something special ? Isn’t it unique ? Bigg Boss is hugely popular . It is eagerly awaited . All the participants become household name . And here I can say with utmost satisfaction that I have 2 students per episode . In total 12 students in 6 seasons .

Any Acting Trainer would wish that his students should be in the house . Every Acting Trainer of Mumbai and all the Acting Trainers of India dream for this kind of publicity , which is rare . Some Acting Trainers of Mumbai even make false claims . Luckily ,  as an Acting Trainer of  Bollywood , I got this on platter .

Among all the Famous Acting Classes in Mumbai or reputed Film Institutes of Mumbai , my institute Vidur’s Kreating Charakters is fortunate enough to have such a track record .

A wannabe Acting Trainer of India and few unscrupulous , shady Bollywood Acting Trainers have greeted me with cuss words on the facebook . They sent me message on the facebook so that no one else could read it . This only shows their utmost frustration . Famous Acting Class can’t be run by frustrated people . It is like meditation . You have to slog . You have to work tirelessly , relentlessly and without showing fatigue .

But anyway , it is time to rejoice . It is time to sit down and take stock of the situation . It is very satisfying moment , a humbling experience . I thank almighty for giving me such opportunities and honour .

I am thankful to all my students for making me proud .

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 8


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 04, 2012           11.45 P.M.

Last time I wrote my Telly Tales at the time of ” Bigg Boss – Season – 5 “ . After that , there was a lull because nothing fascinating happened in the telly world . But on September 30 , 2012 when Gurmeet Choudhary won the coveted title of popular TV show ” Jhalak Dikhla Jaa – Season 5 “ , I knew that a new version of Telly Tales is due .

Gurmeet Choudhary , who won ” Jhalak Dikhla Jaa – Season – 5 “ , is my student . ” Jhalak Dikhla Jaa ”  is hugely popular TV show . All its previous winners have already become celebrities . Gurmeet Choudhary is the latest one .

English: Gurmeet Choudhary at Rahul - Dimpy Ma...

Gurmeet Choudhary (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

He first came into prominence in Ramayan ” [ 2008 ] , where he played Bhagwan Ram . It came on NDTV Imagine . Then he appeared in ” Geet …Hui Sabse Parayi ” [ 2010 ] on Star One .

Geet (TV series)

Geet (TV series) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

After this , currently he is doing another serial ” Punar Vivah ” [ 2012 ] on Zee TV . In 2009 he also took part in a reality show Pati Patni Aur Woh and then he became a household name .

In 2008 he won NEW TALENT AWARDS for ” Ramayan “ . In 2011 he won ZEE GOLD AWARDS for Geet – Hui Sabse Parayi . In 2012 again he won ZEE GOLD AWARDS for ” Punar Vivah “ and finally won the title for ” Jhalak Dikhla Jaa – Season 5 ” .

Acting Trainers of Mumbai or Acting Trainers of India always dream to have such students . Acting Schools of Mumbai and Acting Schools of India or any Bollywood Acting School wish to have such students . I am fortunate that Gurmeet Choudhary is my student . I am not writing this blog only because he has won a popular title . I am writing it to make it clear that Gurmeet Choudhary is extremely well – behaved and down-to-earth person . He is a Method actor and knows his craft well .

I am happy for him and wish him all the success in future !

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 7 : Bigg Boss Connection [ A ]


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA             OCTOBER 04. 2011                     10.30 P.M.

On October 02 , 2011 , when I was watching the 5th season of  Bigg Boss ” , I realized that the show has become enormously big and has now totally metamorphosed into a very important show of Indian telivision.

When it started in November 03 , 2006 , it was not so big indeed. But slowly it grew and now it is one of the most eagerly awaited shows of Indian television.

This reality TV programme follows the ” Bigg Brother “ format of the Netherlands , developed by Endemol. It is a highly popular reality TV show in many countries of the world.
