MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 22, 2013           10.00 P.M.

This is my 151st Blog in the category of FILMS . And 2nd one about TIMES CELEBEX List .

July 2013 TIMES CELEBEX LIST

Success Ratio 25 % .

[ 25 students in the list of 100 celebrities ]

————————————————————————————-

I wrote 1st blog about ” TIMES CELEBEX ” in October 2012 . TIMES CELEBEX is the first ever ranking index of Hindi film stars done by Times of India and is powered by Zoom . 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 ……………” .

1st TIMES CELEBEX List September 2012 

Success Ratio 35 % .

[ 07 students in the list of 20 celebrities ] 

————————————————————————————

1 year later I am writing this 2nd blog . This time my success ratio is 25 % . [ 25 students in the list of 100 celebrities ] . Numerically this time success ratio is 10 % less than the past year but this time list is bigger and all – inclusive also . And 25 % is still higher , compared to many Acting Institutes [ Upstarts , Gaali Gurus of Facebook Acting School and Veterans included ] . And when I mention Acting Institutes , I don’t include Shri Roshan Taneja . He is like Dilip Kumar , beyond the list . And I don’t include Assha Chandra ji also . She is my teacher and , unlike Gaali Gurus of Facebook Acting School , I have respect for my teacher .

My 23 – year – long journey as an acting trainer seems to be fruitful and satisfactory . I am proud of my students . I am proud that they are working in their chosen field . They don’t have to become a broker to help me in my voyage . I don’t encourage my students to roam around in the lanes and pimp around in search of new clients to further my business .

And thank God ! I don’t have the ignominy of becoming a door-mat of my student , so that I can also revel in revelries of the film industry .

So Soon Mohit Ji ?


At the Chautha of Mohit Ji

At the Chautha of Mohit Ji

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 11 , 2013           00.15 A.M.

From the annual trip to my home town Deoria , Uttar Pradesh , I returned to Mumbai on July 02 , 2013 . On July 03 when I reached my acting institute in the morning , I got the shocking news of passing away of Mohit ji . He died of cardiac arrest in the early morning of July 02 , 2013 at the age of 51 .

I was stunned . I was dumbfounded and numb . It was beyond imagination . He was 9 years younger to me . How could he leave us so soon ? 51 is too young to go . 51 is no age to leave this world . 51 is not the age to say good-bye .

In the evening I got a message from his sister that he would be cremated on July 04 , 2013 at electric crematorium , Shivaji Park , Dadar . I reached there in the morning . After some time an ambulance entered in the compound . It was carrying his dead body . Mohit ji in an ambulance ? So unbearable ! So painful ! So sad !

His body was carried out on a stretcher and ah , it opened floodgates of memory to inundate me completely .

I vividly remember my first encounter with him . I left Assha Chandra ji in the beginning of 1990 and started working with Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor . If I am remembering correctly , it was the beginning of 1992 when Mohit ji came to meet Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor with Mr. Jag Mohan Mattoo , a film director . Later on he started working there as an acting instructor . And slowly our friendship grew .

So it was a 20-year-long association with Mohit ji . We were in the same field , in the same profession and for most of the time in the same institute . But there was no jealousy , animosity or rivalry between us . I can say with all honesty that somewhere I might have erred in my association with him . At some juncture of life , I might have failed him as a friend . But he never ever erred or failed me as a friend .

In later years he left Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor and joined Mr. Anupam Kher for a brief period . During last years of his life he was mostly freelancing and training some very brilliant and bright star-kids .

It is painful to say good-bye to such a dear friend . It is heart-wrenching to bid adieu to a colleague , who was much younger . It was agonizing  to see him dead . It was sad to see his lifeless body being carried into the electric chamber and coming out as ash in an earthen pot . His smiling face was lost forever . He will not be seen ever again .

It seems surreal even today as I am writing this blog . It all seemed unreal when I saw his dead body . Though hallucinatory , but it seems that Mohit ji is still alive . I feel that any moment he will walk in and say , ” hello , Vidur ji , how are you ? ” This is the way he used to address me always .

It is painful to address him in past tense . It is sad to even think that he is gone and we will never meet again in this life .

After his cremation I returned with heavy heart . Then there was chautha and prayer meeting on July 05 , 2013 at Arya Samaj temple , Santacruz . It is painful that so many old acquaintances didn’t turn up either for the cremation or for chautha . A Lab Assistant was conspicuous by his absence . He had no time for a departed colleague and associate , who had given his sweat , blood and youth to him and his now declining institution .

It is sad . It is cruel . It is cussed . But this is life . This is the way film industry works . This is the way the Lab Assistant operates .

Farewell my friend !

Good-bye Mohit ji !

You were extremely talented acting trainer . You were definitely better than me . But destiny was cruel to you . You never got what you so rightly deserved . Sorry to say but you were destiny’s neglected child .

Adieu destiny’s neglected child !
