My 3 students got Screen Awards and now 2 students have won Filmfare Award also . This way my 5 students have won these two most prestigious and celebrated awards in 2013 . The year started with a bang and seems to be very promising .

There are people who jump to celebrate so-called stupendous success of some obscure serial . On the basis of such serials they proudly announce that they are the best in bollywood . I don’t have courage to boast and blow my own trumpet . My acting academy may not be the best acting academy of Mumbai or it may not be the best acting institute of India but my students are winning Screen and Filmfare Awards . It might not be the best acting school of Bollywood but it is not for nothing that 5 actors trained by me got the two most prestigious awards this year .

Through this blog I would like to celebrate the success of my students , Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma , who got Filmfare Awards this year .

I congratulate all the above mentioned students on behalf of all the current students and staff of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . May they achieve much more in the coming year .

My Column ” Kal Aur Aaj ” in Bhojpuri City – [ 6 ]


 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA            SEPTEMBER 10, 2011                 11 . 55 P. M.

This is the 6th article of my Hindi column ” Kal Aur Aaj ” . It comes in Bhojpuri City , a fortnightly Bhojpuri film trade magazine published from Mumbai .

Though I intend to write one article for my column every fortnight but this time there was a gap of almost two and half months. My last , 5th article was published in the May 1st issue of Bhojpuri City and now this 6th article comes in the September 1st issue. This , regretfully , happened because of my incessant travels and recent illness of my wife.

This article is about the pitiable and woefully pathetic condition of the various famous and legendary film studios of Mumbai.

I am reproducing here the cover page of the current issue of Bhojpuri City and 3 pages of the article. This is my longest article till date .
