Times Celebex : India’s 1st Celebrity Rating Index [ 1 ]


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 28, 2012           10.45 P.M.

On this Sunday evening , while going through bunch of news papers , which I subscribe , I found an interesting write-up in Bombay Times of Times Of India . It was about ” TIMES CELEBEX ” . This is first ever ranking index of Hindi film stars . Since it is done by Times of India and is powered by Zoom , it has to be quite authentic .

In Hindi film industry , or in any film industry of the world in general , fortunes change every Friday , when the new films hit the screen in theatres . So fixing the rating and ranking is not an easy task . But since it is done by Times of India and as per their claim it is ” most definitive and scientific ranking system ……….. robust ranking system based on data collected from 200+ publications and 250+ TV channels ……………” , one has to believe and take note of this list .

List of The Actors As Per Their Ranking :

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

1 – Salman Khan

2 – Akshay Kumar

3 – Shah Rukh Khan

4 – Ranbir Kapoor

5 – Amitabh Bachchan

6 – Emraan Hashmi

7 – Ajay Devgn

8 – Saif Ali Khan

9 – Aamir Khan

10 – Hritik Roshan

Out of these 10 actors , I can say it with pride that 4 are my students . They are ; Ranbir Kapoor , Emraan Hashmi , Saif Ali Khan and Hritik Roshan . They rank 4th , 6th , 8th and 10th respectively .

List of The Actresses As Per Their Ranking :

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

1 – Kareena Kapoor

2 – Katrina Kaif

3 – Priyanka Chopra

4 – Bipasha Basu

5 – Aishwarya Rai

6 – Sonakshi Sinha

7 – Vidya Balan

8 – Deepika Padukone

9 – Anushka Sharma

10 – Asin

Out of these 10 actresses , 3 are my students . They are ; Kareena Kapoor , Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra . They rank 1st , 2nd and 3rd respectively .

Anushka Sharma , who stands at 9th position , is also my student . But as I have stated earlier she refuses to acknowledge that she was trained by me , so I don’t think it would be ethical to take any credit .

Batch No. 19 - Anushka 1st Row Extreme Right

Batch No. 19 – Anushka 1st Row Extreme Right

It is heartening for an Acting Trainer that his 7 students are present in the list of 20 high-ranking stars . It comes to 1/3 share . Barring Mr. Roshan Taneja no other Acting Trainer of Mumbai can claim to have this kind of illustrious list . Any Acting Trainer of India would give his right or left arm to get such successful students .

I congratulate all the 7 students on behalf of me and my Acting Institute Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . Vidur’s Kreating Charakters family is proud of their achievement  .

May they grow in stature and may their success and fame be everlasting !

A Tale of Two Acting Institutes : FTII & NSD


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 28 , 2012           01.15 A.M.

I start my blog with salutations to Shri Roshan Taneja , Ex Head of FTII [ Film & Television Institute of India ] and Ebrahim Alkazi , Ex Head of NSD [ National School of Drama ] .

With Shri Roshan Taneja in His Office

With Shri Roshan Taneja in His Office

Then I proceed to submit that apart from above mentioned two giants of Acting Training , I don’t like the present dispensation of these so-called premiere acting institutes of India .

Let me take their case one by one .

NATIONAL SCHOOL OF DRAMA :

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

This so-called premiere school boasts of the alumni , which could be the dream of any Acting Trainer of India . This famous theatre training institute was established in 1959 in New Delhi by the Sangeet Natak Akademi . In 1975 it became an independent school .

National School of Drama

First batch of NSD was passed out in 1961 . After this Ebrahim Alkazi took over the reigns and helmed the affair of the school from 1962 to 1977 . It was the golden period of NSD .

In 2008 , though the NSD celebrated its Golden Jubilee , but the shine  , the sheen had gone . I fail to understand the attitude of the present day students of NSD . They think that since they have done an acting course from NSD , so the whole world should invariably acknowledge their eminence . They behave as if whole universe is indebted to them because they have done two years training in NSD . Their immortal arrogance precede their mortal body . This is precisely the reason that they are not very successful in Hindi Film Industry .

FILM & TELEVISION INSTITUTE OF INDIA :

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

This premier film acting institute was established in 1960 by Ministry of Information and Broadcasting , Government of India . The present campus is situated in the holy precincts of erstwhile Prabhat Film Company , Pune .

Notable alumni

I do agree that this an enviable list . Any Acting Trainer of India can die for such illustrious students . But what is the present condition ? Why this institute is unable to churn such illustrious students any more ? What happened after Shri Roshan Taneja’s departure ?

Can any one answer ? NSD and FTII were successful with enviable record during the tenure of Shri Ebrahim Alkazi and Shri Roshan Taneja respectively . After their departure mediocrity started ruling and these glorious institutions became just buildings , just structures .

Great institutions are governed by great minds , giant personalities . They can’t be run by upstarts and dwarfs . I can’t comment much about NSD but I know the root cause of the deterioration and subsequent demise of FTII . After departure of Shri Roshan Taneja , every Tom , Dick & Harry rushed to FTII and became Acting Trainers . In front of 10 / 20 captive students they proclaimed themselves as the incarnation of Constantin Stanislavski . People managing the affairs of FTII had and have no vision . They employed every wannabe , every upstart , every so-called veteran actors as Acting Coach and these frustrated Dilip Kumars and Amitabh Bachchans ruined the great FTII .

The decadence is apparent , degeneration is palpable and death is imminent . I have one student in the current batch of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , who has completed two years acting course from FTII . She is beautiful and is definitely talented . But because of wrong training , she is struggling in my class . She is not at fault . Fault lies at the door of their trainers , who proclaim themselves as the reincarnation of Constantin Stanislavski and dish out half – baked knowledge . It never happened during the tenure of Shri Roshan Taneja .

Is there any remedy ? Will these two institutes be able to come out of ICU ? Can there be another Ebrahim Alkazi and Roshan Taneja ?

On behalf of myself and on behalf of all the students of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters and whole family of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , I pray to the almighty for the long life of NSD and FTII ! May the future be more glorious and shining than the illustrious past !

[ List of the alumni of FTII is taken from Wikipedia . I express my gratitude . ]

My Association With ” Student Of The Year “


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 21 , 2012           11.00 P.M.

Karan Johar‘s much – awaited film Student Of The Year got released on October 19 , 2012 . As expected , this much – hyped film got tremendous response from the youngsters .

To make my point clear about the film , let me post some tweets from the twitter handle of some most famous and eminent trade analysts of India :

Fun, frolic, full masti! That’s what the newest hit, SOTY, is. KJo is the Maker Of The Year! Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/student-of-the-year-review/ …

In spite of Navratri,Durga pooja,SOTY day 1 is aprox.9.25 crore(this is not final figure).FANTASTIC for a film with no establishd lead star!

Update: #SOTY proves KJo’s BO power, clout amongst audience, film opens BIG http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/trade/update/id/298/date/2012-10-19 …

I know every Acting Trainer worth his name would love to be associated with such kind of films . Dharma Production is a prestigious banner of Hindi Film industry . Every Acting Trainer of Mumbai would love to be associated with the banner in any way . I am lucky that I am regularly called by this banner for the acting workshop for their films . Even if there are no acting workshops , I am always called to train their stars if needed .

One day while I was sitting in my office , I got a call . The caller introduced himself as Varun . He told me that he would like to join me for training . When he came personally , only then I got to know that he is Mr. David Dhawan‘s son . He impressed me with his impeccable behaviour and insatiable thirst for learning the skill . I told him that I would love to work with him .

He was trained by some other Acting Institute of Mumbai but he still wanted to join me . It shows his faith in my training and the unflinching belief in my by Dharma Production . I cannot say no to anyone with such amount of respect and faith in me .

As the above posted two photographs suggest , he worked with me for months and completed the course . First photo was clicked when he started training and second one was clicked when he completed the training . I am happy that among the actors of ” Student Of The Year “ , he is being praised most for his acting skills .

Another student of me , who is associated with the film , is Shekhar Ravjiani of music director Vishal – Shekhar fame . He was recommended to me by Yash Raj Films . He is coming as celebrity judge on various channels and there are other coming projects also . So I worked with him . He , along with his partner Vishal Dadlani , has composed music for the film and it is big hit .

Any Bollywood Acting School would love to have such accomplished actor and music director as their students . I am lucky that I have an impressive array of such students .

” Student Of The Year “ is being liked , being praised . And as an Acting Trainer of India , I am satisfied that work of my students are being acclaimed .

Yes , I Am Acting Tutor , Not Acting Trainer


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 12 , 2012           00.45 A.M.

IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS , THEN IT IS FOOLISH TO BE WISE ; A Proverb

My country has unique quality . Here you will find people who claim that they know everything . Without reading literature , they can teach literature . Without watching old classic films , they can endlessly give sermon on films . Without meeting a single film legend , they boast about being in touch of all the legends of cinema . They can claim that they are polyglot and can write and speak impeccable English . It is another thing that their knowledge of language is limited and their spelling is horribly wrong .

When it comes to languages I am puritan . I did my Post Graduation in English Literature from Allahabad University , which is known as Oxford of the East . Therefore when I see a wrong spelling or a wrong sentence I squirm . I admire and try to follow Queen’s English .

In olden days , standard of education was so high in India that even a wood-cutter could speak impeccable Sanskrit . Let me tell a story . Raja Bhoj , who is known for his erudition and knowledge , was roaming around in a forest . He saw an old wood-cutter . That old wood-cutter was walking with difficulty because of the woods he was carrying on his shoulder . Raja Bhoj thought of helping him . He asked the wood-cutter , ” किं स्कन्धं बाधति ? ” [ Is your shoulder paining ? ] As per Sanskrit grammar , the verb should have been बाधते and not बाधति . Old wood-cutter looked at the king and answered back , ” स्कन्धं न बाधते राजन , यथा बाधति बाधते ” [ My shoulder is not paining but the use of wrong word बाधति is definitely painful. ]

But this is an old story . This kind of knowledge and education is a thing of past . Much water has flown down the holy Ganga . So wrong sentences and wrong spellings are order of the day .

Let me come to the point . Recently I was made aware that I am just a tutor and not the trainer of acting . Acerbic tone of the statement made it clear that it is a gibe and not a genuine praise . Gentleman who made the barb does not know the real meaning of Trainer . Just look at the meaning of trainer given in the dictionary :

TRAINER

==========

noun.

1. a staff member on an athletic team who gives first aid and therapy to injured players.

2. a person who trains athletes; coach.

3. a person who trains racehorses or other animals for contests, shows, or performances.

4. an airplane or a simulated aircraft used in training crew members, especially pilots.

I don’t find any reference of acting or fine arts here . Word Trainer is used for the coach of animals , machines or athletes .

Now look at the meaning of tutor :

TUTOR

=========

noun.

1. a person employed to instruct another in some branch or branches of learning, especially a private instructor.

2. a teacher of academic rank in some American universities and colleges.

3. a teacher without institutional connection who assists students in preparing for examinations.

4. (especially at Oxford and Cambridge) a university officer, usually a fellow, responsible for teaching and supervising a number of undergraduates.

5. the guardian of a boy or girl below the age of puberty or majority.

-v.t.

6. to act as a tutor to; teach or instruct, especially privately.

7. to have the guardianship, instruction, or care of.

8. to instruct under handedly; coach: to tutor a witness before he testifies.

9. Archaic.
a. to train, school, or discipline.
b. to admonish or reprove.

-v.i.
10. to act as a tutor or private instructor.
11. to study privately with a tutor.

Trainer is associated with animals and tutor is associated with study , knowledge and fine arts . We can find first reference of a tutor in 1631 . You can see the photograph of Prince Charles Louis with his Tutor posted below .

English: Painting: Prince Charles Louis with h...

Almost 240 years later we find another eminent tutor of Oxford University . You can see the photograph posted below .

There was another tutor of repute in that era . I am posting portrait of Vilém Gabler (1821 – 1897), Czech teacher, who was private tutor in rich families .

Portrait of Vilém Gabler (1821 – 1897), Czech teacher, private tutor in rich families, long-time director of high school for girls in Prague and author of textbooks and travelogues. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Now go through the following synonyms of tutor :

Synonyms of Tutor :

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

coach, direct, discipline, drill, drum into, edify, educate, guide, instruct, lay it out for, lecture, let in on, ready, school, train, update

So it is amply clear that in the field of art , fine arts and acting , there could only be a tutor and not trainer . I don’t know how and when it started but these days the word Acting Trainer is in vogue . I have no problem with the word Acting Trainer . But Tutor is not derogatory . On the contrary Tutor is the right and most appropriate word for an acting coach .

But as I have written in the beginning :

IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS , THEN IT IS FOOLISH TO BE WISE ; A Proverb

There are Acting Trainers of Mumbai , Acting Trainers of India . Some Bollywood Acting Trainers use the title Acting Guru also . All the reputed and not so reputed Acting Schools of Mumbai and Acting Schools of India take pride in the fact that they have employed Acting Trainers of repute . Let them take the cake .

I state with all the humility that I am the one and only Acting Tutor of India . I am fully satisfied with my life as an Acting Tutor . If people think that being tutor is inferior than a trainer , it is their complexes . It is their limited knowledge of Queen’s English .

But as I have stated in the beginning :

IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS , THEN IT IS FOOLISH TO BE WISE ; A Proverb

Sad End of Varsha Bhosle


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 10, 2012           00.45 A.M.

On Monday October 08 , while I was going through the tweets of some of the eminent people , whom I follow , I suddenly noticed that many people are paying tribute to Varsha Bhosle . I knew that Varsha Bhosle is the name of legendary singer Asha Bhosle’s daughter , but it didn’t occur to me that this Varsha Bhosle is the same person .

English: Indian singer Lata Mangeshkar

English: Indian singer Asha Bhosle

Asha Bhosle (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Though I am a die-hard Lata Mangeshkar fan but I do respect Asha Bhosle immensely . It is sad that at this age she has to face this kind of tragedy . In her tumultuous career and eventful life , she faced many challenges and she faced them bravely . But a tragedy of this magnitude is unimaginable .

I am extremely fortunate that I had opportunity to have telephonic conversation with legendary Lata Mangeshkar once . I am honoured that I had visited Lata Mangeshkar’s apartment at Prabhu Kunj once . I am yet to meet Asha Tai . But I can say that I know Varsha Bhosle . I know her through her writings. I loved her column on internet . When , during pre – social media boom , she started writing her column on a portal called Rediff.com , she got huge fan following . I was one of the followers . Though she wrote for print media also but her internet column was beyond words .

She wrote columns for the web portal, Rediff, during 1997 – 2003; columns for The Sunday Observer during 1994 – 1998; and for Gentleman magazine in 1993. She also wrote a little for the Times of India and for Rakshak – The Protector police magazine .

Before writing columns , she worked as a playback singer in Hindi and Marathi movies, and appeared in concerts with her mother. She sang for a Dev Anand filmLootmaar ” [ 1980 ] .

Varsha ji finished school from Hill Grange High School, on Pedder Road, Mumbai, in 1974, with an ISC. She studied Political Science at Elphinstone College, which is affiliated with Bombay University in Mumbai.

She lived in Mumbai with her mother, Asha Bhosle. She had married a sports writer and public relations professional Hemant Kenkre but the couple divorced in 1998. On September 9, 2008, she attempted suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping pills, after which she was admitted to Mumbai‘s Jaslok hospital. Later, on October 8, 2012, 56-year-old Varsha committed suicide at her residence in Mumbai. She shot herself in the head at her Prabhu Kunj residence in Mumbai.

Almost all the readers of her columns are her life-long fans . She had her own distinct style . She was honest . She was blunt . She was iconoclast . But she always admired and respected her critics . It never took more than a moment to accept her mistakes . And she always accepted it with dignity and without ill – will .

It is extremely sad that such a gifted writer left us too soon . I always wanted to meet her . But now it wont be possible ever .

Rest In Peace Varsha ji . You shall always be with us through your written words .

[ I have quoted few things from Wikipedia . I express my indebtedness .]

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 .

The 100 Crore Club of Hindi Films


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 06, 2012           01.40 A.M.

All the Acting Trainers of Mumbai want successful students . Its natural . Some Acting Trainers of India even make false claims about their student actors to show the world that they are very successful . Its deceit . Almost all Bollywood Acting Trainers have lists of their students , who are now very much successful in Hindi film industry . Some are genuine , some are fake .

In fact all the Film Institutes of Mumbai dish out list of their students , whose films are there in the 100 Crore Club . In olden days Silver Jubilee , Golden Jubilee and Diamond Jubilee used to be the hallmark of a successful films . But now 100 Crore earning films are considered successful .

Till date only 15 films have earned 100 Crore or more . I am reproducing the list of films of all the 15 films of 100 Crore Club from Wikipedia .

The Bollywood 100 Crore Club
Year Film No. of Days Net Gross
2008 Ghajini 18 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2009 3 Idiots 9 INR202 crore (US$38.18 million)
2010 Dabangg 10 INR140 crore (US$26.46 million)
2010 Golmaal 3 17 INR108 crore (US$20.41 million)
2011 Ready 14 INR121 crore (US$22.87 million)
2011 Singham 37 INR100 crore (US$18.9 million)
2011 Bodyguard 7 INR141 crore (US$26.65 million)
2011 Ra.One 11 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2011 Don 2 16 INR115 crore (US$21.74 million)
2012 Agneepath 11 INR120 crore (US$22.68 million)
2012 Housefull 2 17 INR112 crore (US$21.17 million)
2012 Rowdy Rathore 10 INR131.56 crore (US$24.86 million)
2012 Bol Bachchan 20 INR106 crore (US$20.03 million)
2012 Ek Tha Tiger 6 INR186 crore (US$35.15 million)
2012 Barfi! 19 INR100 crore (US$18.9 million)

Out of these 15 films , there are 10 films which have my students are protagonists [ male and female both ] and antagonists . When I go through the list , I feel satisfied that as an Acting Trainer , I have 18 students of mine whose films are there in the 100 Crore Club . I am not blowing my own trumpet but no Bollywood Acting Trainer has such a long list .

I am giving the name of the artistes , who are my students  :

1 – KAREENA KAPOOR  : “3 Idiots”, “Golmaal 3”, “Bodyguard”, “Ra.One”

2 – PRIYANKA CHOPRA : “Don 2” , “Agneepath” & “Barfi”

3 – ARBAAZ KHAN : ” Dabangg “

4 – SONU SOOD : ” Dabangg “

5 – HAZEL KEECH : ” Bodyguard “

6 – ARJUN RAMPAL : ” Ra.One “

7 – KUNAL KAPOOR : ” Don 2 “

8 – HRITIK ROSHAN : ” Agneepath “

9 – SAJID KHAN : ” Housefull 2 ” [ As Director ]

10 – JACQUELINE FERNANDEZ : ” Housefull 2 “

11 – SHAZAHN PADAMSEE : ” Housefull 2 “

12 – KATRINA KAIF : ” Ek Tha Tiger “

13 – RANBIR KAPOOR : ” Barfi “

Out of these 13 students , Kareena Kapoor tops the list with 4 films . She is followed by Priyanka Chopra with 3 films . Rest 11 have 1 film each in their kitty. Out of these 13 students , 12 are actors and 1 Sajid Khan is the director of ” Housefull 2 ” .

Kareena Kapoor was the first to enter in this illustrious club and Ranbir Kapoor is the latest . Both are my student and they both belong to Kapoor family , the first family of Hindi Film industry .

As an Acting Trainer of Bollywood , who runs a Famous Acting Class in Mumbai , known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , it is a very satisfying journey indeed .

Any Acting Trainer of India can do anything to have such a list .
