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.

My 25-Year-Long Journey : From Kareena Kapoor to Alia Bhatt


2

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST 08, 2014           08.50 P.M.

 

My fascination with Hindi film heroines started in mid 60s. In the dark environs of Amar Jyoti Talkies, Deoria, my rendezvous with Hindi cinema took place with Rajendra Kumar and B. Saroja Devi starrer Silver Jubilee hit  ” Sasural ” [ 1961 ] . B. Saroja Devi, though not well-known to Hindi cine-goers, was almost alien to me. But after watching the film, I was unable to forget her. Her elegant persona, her well-kept figure, her chiselled face enticed me for weeks and months. She was the first icon of my childhood fancy.

Few years later in 1967, after appearing in High School exams, I watched Dilip Kumar and  Vyjayanthimala, starrer golden jubilee film ” Ganga Jumna “. B. Saroja Devi and  Vyjayanthimala, to my utter surprise, looked almost similar. I was hooked to Vyjayanthimala and my fascination for the film heroines got fortified.

After passing High School, I went to Allahabad for further studies. My true rendezvous with Hindi cinema started in all earnest in Allahabad. I started watching films regularly. I got acquainted with the heroines of early Hindi cinema. I was particularly enamoured by Devika Rani and Kanan Devi. [ Who can forget Devika Rani’s ………. MAIN BAN KI CHIDIA BAN KE BAN-BAN DOLOON RE ……….( ” Achhut Kanya ” – 1936 ) and Kanan Devi’s ………….. YE DUNIYA ,YE DUNIYA TOOFAN MAIL ……… ( Jawaab ” – 1942 ) ? Few years later I watched two earlier films of Kanan Devi; P. C. Barua starrer ” Mukti ” [ 1937 ] and K. L. Sehgal starrer ” Street Singer ” [ 1938 ]. Though they were the heroines of my father’s generation but their etherial beauty, their sweet voice enthralled me and fascinated me during my adolescent and growing up years in Allahabad.

Later on I got acquainted with the works of other highly successful actresses of the bygone era. The list included Nargis, Suraiya, Nalini Jayawant,  Meena Kumari, Madhubala, Nimmi and Geeta Bali. These heroines ruled the golden era of Hindi films. But even they belonged to the earlier era.

My era included highly successful and enchanting heroines like;  Nutan, Vyjayanthimala, Waheeda Rehman , Nanda and Mala Sinha .

I became a die-hard fan of Waheeda Rehman after watching her films Pyaasa (1957) and Kaagaz Ke Phool (1959) . After watching Raj Kapoor‘s Awaara (1951) and of Mehboob Khan‘s Mother India (1957), Nargis, also became one of my all time favourites. Vijay Bhatt‘s Baiju Bawra (1952), made me a fan of  Meena Kumari.  K. Asif‘s Mughal-e-Azam (1960) made Madhubala my eternal favourite.

Then times changed. My journey with cinema matured. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, actresses like Sadhna, Saira Banu, Sharmila Tagore, Mumtaz and Asha Parekh ruled the Hindi film world.

In the early 70s  Amitabh Bachchan, era started in the Hindi film industry. Actresses from this era included Hema Malini, Jaya BachchanRekha,  Zeenat Aman and Dimple Kapadia. I adored these heroines but frankly, I was neither enchanted or enamoured by them. Mysterious quality of the earlier heroines was missing. Or may be I became mature and the mystique slowly evaporated.

In 1975, I completed my studies in Allahabad and returned to my native place, Deoria. A 14-year-long second phase of my life started in Deoria.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the pendulum swung back towards family centric romantic musicals with the success of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) . Incidentally this was the last film, which I watched in Deoria.

I moved to Bombay [ now Mumbai ] in 1989. This was the year when Maine Pyar Kiya (1989) got released and changed the film-watching experience forever.

Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), Dil (1990), Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (1994) and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), making stars out of a new generation and actresses such as Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla and Kajol . In that point of time actresses such as Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Aishwarya Rai also arrived on the scene.  Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor too appearing in popular comedy films .

Furthermore, this decade marked the entry of new performers in art house and independent films like Satya (1998), directed by Ram Gopal Varma and written by Anurag Kashyap. Manisha Koirala, Tabu and Urmila Matondkar were the heroines of this generation.

So it was a long association with the silver screen heroines. From Kanan Devi to Kajol and Karisma Kapoor , I watched everyone, got fascinated by them and silently admired their etherial beauty. But never in my wildest dream did I imagine that one day I would train few of the present day ruling Divas of Hindi cinema. After 25 year stay in Mumbai, when I look back, I reminisce my by-gone days with astonishment. I am bewildered with my accomplishment.

In 1994 two heroines trained by me made their debut in Hindi films. They are Sonali Bendre in ” Aag ” [ 1994 ] and Divya Dutta in ” Ishq Mein Jeena Ishq Mein Marna ” [ 1994 ] . It uncanny that 1994 was the year when Devika Rani died. Kanan Devi bid us adieu two years earlier in 1992.

My childhood icons left this world in 1994 and present day icons, trained by me , made their entry in 1994. It is strange. It is quirky. It is really uncanny. After debut of Sonali Bendre and Divya Dutta in 1994, flood-gate of the newcomers got opened and it has now submerged the Hindi film industry. I present a list of some of the epoch-making new era Hindi film Divas, who got trained by me :

Kareena Kapoor : ” Refugee ” [ 2000 ] = DEBUT

Priyanka Chopra : ” The Hero ” [ 2002 ] = DEBUT

SONAM KAPOOR : ” Saawariya ” [ 2007 ] = DEBUT

Anushka Sharma : ” Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi ” [ 2008 ] = DEBUT

Katrina Kaif :  ” Raajneeti ” [ 2010]

ALIA BHATT : ” Student Of The Year ” [ 2012 ] = DEBUT

KALKI KOECHLIN : ” Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani ” [ 2013 ]

URVASHI RAUTELA : ” Singh Saab The Great ” [ 2013 ] = DEBUT

 

In the end I would like to submit that the above mentioned list is almost endless. I have mentioned very famous names only. As I watch Alia Bhatt making rapid strides,and other newcomers trained by me making their entry in the tinsel town, my heart beats fast with pride.

Some of the biggest star sons / daughters are currently being trained by me and they are going to make their debut in 2015.

So the SAGA CONTINUES !! Dust settles down. Sun shines brilliantly. And the World { excluding few egoistic nay-sayers } watches with awe, admiration and amazement.

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 04, 2014           11.55 P.M. 
March 2014 was a disastrous month for the Hindi film industry . Out of 13 films released this month , only 2 films ; ” Queen ” and ” Ragini MMS 2 “ were hits . Remaining 11 films were resounding flops . A sad state of affair for the industry .

Month of March ended with 2 big films .  ” O Teri “ and ” Dishkiyaoon ” . ” O Teri ” has 3 students of mine . Pulkit Samrat and  Bilal Amrohi as actors and Alvira Agnihotri as co producer and costume designer .

Celebrating ” Gulaab Gang ”


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MARCH 10 , 2014           01.20 A.M.

I was eagerly waiting for ” Gulaab Gang “ to release . I am an admirer of Madhuri Dixit and desperately wanted to see her on-screen with Juhi Chawla . But the true cause of my excitement and wait was something else .

” Gulaab Gang “ will always be an important film for me because it features two students of mine . One is Tanvi Rao , who is an actor and an accomplished danseuse and the second student is Pawni Pandey , who is the playback singer in the film and her song ” ………………… Sharm Laaj Moh Maar Kar , Hata De Ye Pallu Jhaad Kar ……………. “  is filmed on Madhuri Dixit .

So the wait was on and it ended on March 07 , 2014 , when the much awaited film ” Gulaab Gang “ was released .

Tanvi Rao and her father Shri Hari Prasad ji visited me two years back , when Tanvi was signed for ” Gulaab Gang ” . I was stunned to see a small girl sitting in front of me and talking to me in supreme confidence . I was shocked to know that she was going to be a co-actor in the film and will perform with Madhuri Dixit . Time was less and she was in Mumbai only for few days . It was a challenge for me and as usual I don’t shun challenges and responsibilities . So I started training her immediately .

I must make it clear in writing that Tanvi , the always smiling cute girl , is very hard-working student and extremely disciplined artiste . I thank her parents for inculcating this culture in her and giving her such great values and ethics , which is fast vanishing from the present day generation . She completed the training and along with her father , went back to her native place Mangalore . But they always remained in touch .

Tanvi , along with her father , came to meet me again and seek my blessings before the start of the shooting . It is so heart warming . It is so unlike some of the students , who make it a point not to acknowledge their teachers before shooting or after the release of their films . Tanvi and her father were full of respect and gratitude , though I had only done my job . Yet they came to me to seek my blessings . It brought tears in my eyes . I was overwhelmed .

I must make it clear that apart from acting in ” Gulaab Gang “ , Tanvi Rao is an accomplished dancer and she has toured the world for her highly successful dance performances on stage . She has won many awards .

My second student in ” Gulaab Gang “ is Pawni Pandey , who has sung the song ” ………………… Sharm Laaj Moh Maar Kar , Hata De Ye Pallu Jhaad Kar ……………. “  . She is currently getting trained in the Batch No. 82 of  VIDUR Acting Institute .

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

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

Ad – Film India Jumbo – 2012-13

Ad - Film India Economy - 2013

Ad – Film India Economy – 2013

Mumbai Mirror Ad - May 13, 2013

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 .

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 .

After achieving 25 % success ratio , I am happy as an acting trainer [ some with questionable knowledge of English call me tutor , as if it is derogatory ] .

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 .
