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.

Vidur’s Film Diary – June 2011


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA                   JULY 01, 2011                  06.00 P.M.

This is the 26th edition of my Film Diary.

It seems drought of the industry is over. Big films are now being released as the IPL is finished and cricket mania finally subsides. First big release of the month of June , ” Ready “ took box office by storm. It has become the third biggest grosser of all times. Last release of the month ” Double Dhamaal is also a top grosser.

First half of 2011 is heartening . In total 13 films were hits. ” Ready ” , ” Yamla Pagla Deewana ” , ” Tanu Weds Manu ” , ” Haunted ” , ” Double Dhamaal ” , ” No One Killed Jessica ” , ” F.A.L.T.U. ” , ” Ragini MMS ” ,”  Dil To Baccha Hai Ji ” , ” Dhobi Ghat ” , ” Bheja Fry 2 ” , ” Chalo Dilli ” and ” Pyar Ka Punchnama “ made handsome profits for their producers.

It is extremely sad that actor Raj Kiran , who was presumed dead , was found in a mental asylum in Atlanta , U. S. A.

Since I was travelling and was out of Mumbai , I might have missed some of the activities of the Film industry. Therefore I am unable to give details of Regional Film Industry and happenings in the Theatre World this month.

As usual I am reproducing tweets from the twitter handles of Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta, eminent trade analysts.
