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 – July 2016


IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           August 28 , 2016           10.30 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : With this post, Vidur’s Film Diary enters in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence. ]

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.

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.

 

VIDUR ACTING INSTITUTE

SUCCESS RATE : 2012 to 2015

Success Rate : 2012 – 2013 = 40 %

Success Rate : 2013 – 2015 = 55 %

Obituary :

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

Omprakash Sonik :

—————————-

Omprakash Sonik , better known as Omi, of the well-known duo Sonik-Omi passed away on July 07, 2016 in a private hospital following cardiac arrest.

A widower, he was 77 and is survived by his son Som and daughter Sudha.

 Omi was the nephew of the blind music director Master Sonik and together they formed the noted Sonik-Omi team which provided music to nearly 125 Bollywood movies in the 1950-1980s.

Born and raised in Sialkot (now in Pakistan), they moved to India after Partition in 1947 and lived mostly in Delhi.

In 1950, the visually challenged but great singer Master Sonik arrived in Mumbai with his young nephew in tow, hoping to make a career in the film industry which was on the threshold of what was later known as ‘golden era’ of its music.

With many stalwarts already holding sway over the listening audiences, the Sonik-Omi duo faced an uphill struggle, fighting near-starvation at times, Omi even joined in a female chorus group to afford a square meal and the uncle-nephew lived in a tiny slum room on the outskirts of Thane.

In the early 1950s, Master Sonik got a break to direct music for films like Mamta, Mehfil and Ishwar Bhakti, but their music failed to catch the ears of the listeners.

They were reduced to near-paupery and doing odd jobs merely to survive, till a few years later when the late Madan Mohan offered Master Sonik the crucial job of music arranger and the late S. D. Burman also followed suit.

The young Omi also got an opportunity to assist the legendary composer Roshan for films like Taj Mahal, Aarti, Barsaat Ki Raat and many others.

The big break came in 1965 from film-maker G. L. Rawal of Rawal Films, for his new venture, Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya and the musical track composed by the Sonik-Omi team became a rage. AAJA RE PYAR PUKARE ……… by Lata Mangeshkar / DIL NE PHIR YAAD KIYA …… by Mohammed Rafi , Mukesh & Suman Kalyanpur / KALIYON NE GHOONGHAT KHOLE …….by Mohammed Rafi / YE DIL HAI MOHABBAT KA PYASA ……. by Mukesh / LO CHEHRA SURKH SHARAB HUA …….. by Mohammed Rafi are still loved by music connoisseurs.

A couple of years later, Rawal offered them for Aabroo whose music also proved immensely popular and Sonik-Omi became a noted name in Bollywood.

Later, they composed music for films like “Mahua” (with the haunting Dono ne kiya tha pyar magar), “Dharma” (the famous qawwali Raaz ki baat keh doon to, jaane mehfil me phir kya ho), “Raftaar” (Sansar Hai ik Nadiya, Dukh Sukh Do Kinare Hain),  Truck Driver, Mehfil, Beti, Dharti Ki God Mein, Umar Qaid, Chowki No. 11 (which had the memorable hit number sung by Shobha Gurtu, Kahin ho na mohalle me halla) and Ladki Pasand Hai.

Over the years, the uncle-nephew pair made a formidable reputation for themselves with compositions in over 125 movies.

While Master Sonik passed away in 1993, Omi continued to compose music and his last musical track was for the film Biwi No. 2 in 2000, after which he eased into retirement.

In the past few years, Omi largely remained away from Bollywood but composed certain non-film and private albums, religious music and other genres of music.

 

Mubarak Begum  :

—————————

Mubarak Begum, an acclaimed play back singer started her career with light music recitals performed for All India Radio. Her career as a playback singer began in 1949 with the Indian, Hindi-language film Aaiye. It was the Indo-Pakistani composer Nashad who gave Mubarak Begum her first break. The first song she recorded for films was “Mohe Aane Lagi Angrayi, Aja Aja Balam” (Aaiye, 1949). She also sang a duet with the then upcoming Lata Mangeshkar in the same film. A major hit in her career was the song “Kabhi Tanhaiyon Mein Yun” for composer Snehal Bhatkar in Kidar Sharma‘s film Hamari Yaad Aayegi which is, till this day, regarded as a classic rendition.

Mubarak Begum died on 18 July 2016 at her residence in Jogeshwari after a prolonged illness.

Mubarak Begum has sung a total of 178 songs for Hindi films during her career, and the total number of films where her songs have appeared is 115.

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.

On behalf of all the students & staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Merchandise, I congratulate my above mentioned 23 participant students of Bigg Boss Show.

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST 23, 2015           11.25 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. ]

[  DECLARATION :  In my film diary, since May 2014, I have started mentioning names of only those students, who respect me as their teacher and accept and regard my contribution in their journey of life. All the other students, who had releases this month but are not mentioned here, are the ones, who refuse to acknowledge me in any way . I can sense their abhorrence to my personality . I am not a sweet-talker. So I know that somewhere they were rubbed the wrong way . I also feel their attachment to some acting trainers , who claim to be the re-incarnation of Constantine Stanislavsky and are sweeter than any sweet delicacy on this earth . Such students are free from any obligation from my side. GOD BLESS THEM ! My journey continues without such students . It marches ahead without their support . It flourishes despite their criticism and false propaganda .]

[  PROCLAIMATION :  In my diary I have been posting above mentioned   DECLARATION  since May 2014. It is now 1 year and 2 months. I suddenly noticed that the ungrateful and disrespectful students are now without work and had no releases recently. They don’t seem to be having any future. So from this month onwards I will stop posting the said   DECLARATION . ]

In 2013 – 14 my success rate was 40% . In 2014 – 15 it is 55% . For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

Obituary :

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

 Sheila Ramani :

—————————

Sheila Ramani (March 2, 1932 – July 15, 2015), also known as Sheila Kewalramani, was introduced into Bollywood by the film-maker Chetan Anand. She is known for her role in the movie Taxi Driver. She was born in Sindh and was one of the few actresses from Sindh to join the Indian film industry.

Sheila Ramani played the lead role in Funtoosh (1956) , another Navketan film opposite Dev Anand. But she remained embossed in memory for Taxi Driver (1954). According to Times of India, ” With her languid sway in a dark sari and shiny blouse in the song ” Dil jale to jale ” and her easy abandon in an off-shoulder dress to the dance track ” Dil se milake dil ” – she oozed spunk and sexuality, cool and control. Ramani was a precursor to the urban modern heroine we see today. She set the stage for them.”

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.

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

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 – 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 .
