IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 30, 2017           11.40 P.M.

End of a year is the time to make plan for the coming year. But it is also the time to take into account the year gone by. People often forget this and they remain unaware of their downward slide if there are any. And thus they fail to make amends.

This is precisely the reason, I started chronicling my accomplishments and write about the year gone by. Here I am chronicling some shinning achievements of the past and also what happened to me on the career front in 2016.

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

 

4 generations of NEW AGE Hindi film actors are my students. They are :

HRITIK ROSHAN – KAREENA KAPOOR

Apart from them, I have trained modern-day Telugu super stars like ; ANUSHKA SHETTY , ALLU ARJUN , NAG CHAITANYA , RAM CHARAN & ALLU SHIRISH . Current Bengali super star DEV is also my student.

Vidur’s Film Diary – May 2016


IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           June 19 , 2016           10.15 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : With this post of May 2016, Vidur’s Film Diary completes 7th year of its existence. June 2016 will mark the beginning of its journey in the 8th year. ]

Satyameva Jayate

 सत्यमेव जयते

In the era of falsehood, Vidur Acting Institute has chosen the tortuous path of truthfulness. In the season of deceit, Vidur Acting Institute has taken the pledge of being factually correct. You can go through the below mentioned facts of my success story and can check and verify them. I have full faith that ” Truth alone triumphs ; not falsehood. ”

सत्यमेव जयते नानृतम् ,
सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः ।
येनाक्रमन्त्यृषयो ह्याप्तकामा ,
यत्र तत् सत्यस्य परमं निधानम् ॥

……………….. मुण्डक उपनिषद्

English Translation

Truth alone triumphs ; not falsehood.
Through truth the divine path is spread out ,
by which the sages , whose desires have been completely fulfilled, reach where that supreme treasure of Truth resides.

…………………………………… Muṇḍaka Upaniṣad

But do check the tall claims of so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Institutes of India”. Grill the so-called “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Trainers of India” and you will see through their hollow claims. Hold a second, they can even claim that they are the “Best Acting Trainers of the World”. My God ! anything is possible in the unethical world of ACTING TRAINING in India.

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumped to 55% in 2014 – 2015. And in 2015 , it zoomed up to 62.35 % . This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER across the world. I am continuously writing Vidur’s Film Diary since 7 years. And to my utter surprise I have noticed that there were no lean months ever. It never happened that a month came and there were none of my students in any of the 5 fields of entertainment, which my diary covers. In fact there were more than a dozen working students every month.

Year End Musings : Vidur Acting Institute in 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 03, 2016           11.00 P.M.

I wrote Year End Musing in 2010 , 2011 & 2012. In those days I used to write about the Hindi films and Hindi film industry in general. Then I thought that there are many websites and many film analysts and trade pundits doing the same job. So what is the need of me writing the same stuff. Therefore I didn’t write Year End Musings in 2013 & 2014.

But this year it occurred to me that I should chronicle yearly success stories and accomplishments of Vidur Acting Institute. In this field, where veterans like Shri Roshan Taneja and Sushri Ashha Chandra are almost retired, there are only few genuine ones left doing their jobs ethically.

This arena is now dominated by few upstarts, who can go to any length to get their prey. They can make false claims, they can Photoshop some pictures and present it as the proof of their recent successes and accomplishments. They have various fee structures of the same course to lure and hoodwink gullible out-of-town students and finally they give free demo class, collect students, click pictures and post it as the new batch of their tottering institute. But it is their moral and ethical values. If they are not bothered, why should I?

I don’t have to compete with them. 4 generations of NEW AGE Hindi film actors are my students. They are :

HRITIK ROSHAN – KAREENA KAPOOR

RANBIR KAPOOR – KATRINA KAIF

VARUN DHAWAH – ALIA BHATT

PULKIT SAMRAT – URVASHI RAUTELA

Apart from them, I have trained modern-day Telugu super stars like ; ANUSHKA SHETTY , ALLU ARJUN , NAG CHAITANYA  & RAM CHARAN. Current Bengali super star DEV is also my student. Why should I lower my standard to the level of some foul-mouth skunks, if I have such an enviable list. I have decided to paint a true picture of my yearly accomplishments with facts and figures. So this year onwards I will keep on posting Year End Musings.

Vidur’s Film Diary – October 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 15 , 2015           11.10 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary completed 6th year of its existence in May 2015. June 2015 marks the beginning of its journey in the 7th year. ]

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumps to 55% in 2014 – 2015. This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER. I am continuously writing Vidur’s Film Diary since 6 years. And to my utter surprise I am noticing that there were no lean months in these 6 years. It never happened that a month came and there were no student in any of the 5 fields of entertainment, which my diary covers. There were more than a dozen working students every month.

For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

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 “
5 – ARMAAN JAIN

VIDUR Acting Institute BANNER - Training Students Since 1990

VIDUR Acting Institute BANNER – Training Students Since 1990

NO LIES , ONLY TRUTH

—————————————————

Companies have tradition of publishing Annual Progress Reports for their  share – holders . Acting Institutes have no such tradition . Not even one acting institute of the world has done it ever .

Acting Institutes have only brochures . But brochures are published in bulk and very often they carry old information . Therefore I decided to establish VIDUR Club and publish Newsletter [ Internet Version ] / Booklet of Achievements [ Print Version ] of the previous year for the perusal of our past , present and would be students , friends & well-wishers , who reside in the 158 countries of the world .

When some upstart acting trainers revel in deception , it is prudent to become upright in dealings . When some upstart acting trainers revel in dishing out false data , it is advisable to come out with true facts & figures . When some upstart acting trainers revel in preposterous claims to lure and hoodwink gullible students , it is ethical and natural to remain transparent .

LET TRUTH PREVAIL

I hope this Newsletter will make matter easier for my past , present & future students as well as friends & well-wishers , who reside in 158 countries of the world . I have tried to make my point clear . For the hard copy [ Booklet of Achievements ] , you can contact my office in Mumbai . You can either collect it personally or it will be sent to you by courier .

I am not basking in the past glory . I am not listing shared legacy as my own . I am not resting on the previous laurels . Even after 23 years of continuous work and training artistes uninterruptedly , my journey has not reached saturation point . It continues unabated . It marches ahead vigorously . It still strives for excellence .

For me :

The past is a springboard , not a hammock ………….

The voyage has just started …………………………………

The saga still continues ………………………….

And Yes :

Dust has now started settling down …………………

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

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 .

To further substantiate my standing as the acting trainer of India of 23 years of standing , here are links of the 21 newspaper articles , links of 04 online postings and links of 8 TV interviews :
