Unlike so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” // “Best Acting Institutes of India” // “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” // “Best Acting Trainers of India” // “Best Acting Trainers of the World”, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence.

Surprisingly “Top Acting Institutes of Mumbai” // “Top Acting Institutes of India” // “Top Acting Trainers of Mumbai” // “Top Acting Trainers of India” // “Top Acting Trainers of the World” are conspicuous by their absolute silence on this front.

Vidur’s Film Diary – December 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           January 01 , 2016           08.15 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary completed 6th year of its existence in May 2015. June 2015 marked the beginning of its journey in the 7th year. ]

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumped to 55% in 2014 – 2015. This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER. I am continuously writing Vidur’s Film Diary since 6 years. And to my utter surprise I am noticing 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.

For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

1 : ” Jai Ho “http://youtu.be/cZzBa4sHXMQ

Vidur’s Film Diary – March 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 01, 2015           06.00 P.M.

[ 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 worked 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 the people, 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 . For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 video posted below :

Vidur’s Film Diary – October 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 07 , 2013           01.45 P.M.
Month of October 2013 will always be infamously known and remembered for ” Besharam “ , a Ranbir Kapoor film , which is the biggest ever Hindi film release till date with over 3000 prints . It is also Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest flop till date . It is said to be the desi version of Lock , Stock And Two Smoking Barrels ” .
” Boss “ , a Akshay Kumar film , also bombed at the box office . Towards the end of the month , 05 films got released but they all failed to make mark in any way .
It is sad and unfortunate that 5 luminaries of Hindi film world left us for their heavenly abode this month . It made this month more gloomy and melancholic .
