150-Crore Club of Hindi Films


2.jpg

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST 13, 2013           01.45 A.M.

Day before yesterday on 11 August I was sitting in my study in the night and was going through the bunch of newspapers . Suddenly I noticed a front page news in Bombay Times of Sunday Times of India . It was about 150 Crore Film Club . It was an intriguing article . And it definitely was a new revelation .

Till date there are only 4 Hindi films in this club . They are :

1 – 3 Idiots = 2009 …………………………… 202.57 Crore ……… Kareena Kapoor

2 – Ek Tha Tiger = 2012 …………………… 185.28 Crore………. Katrina Kaif

3 – Dabangg 2 = 2012 ……………………… 150.61 Crore ………. Arbaaz Khan

4 – Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani = 2013 ……. 179.48 Crore …. Ranbir Kapoor

…………………………………………………………………………….. Kalki Koechlin

Earlier there used to be a 100 Crore Film Club . 22 Hindi films are there in this club . ” Ghajini ” [ 2008 ] , ” 3 Idiots ” [ 2009 ] , ” Dabangg ” [ 2010 ] , ” Golmaal 3 ” [ 2010 ] , ” Ready ” [ 2011 ] , ” Singham ” [ 2011 ] , ” Bodyguard ” [ 2011 ” , ” Ra.One ” [ 2011 ] , ” Don 2 ” [ 2011 ] , ” Agneepath ” [ 2012 ] , ” Housefull 2 ” [ 2012 ] , ” Rowdy Rathod ” [ 2012 ] , ” Bol Bachchan ” [ 2012 ] , ” Ek Tha Tiger ” [ 2012 ] , ” Barfi ! ” [ 2012 ] , ” Jab Tak Hai Jaan ” [ 2012 ] , ” Son Of Sardar ” [ 2012 ] , ” Dabangg 2 ” [ 2012 ] , ” Race 2 ” [ 2013 ] , ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ” [ 2013 ] , ” Bhaag Mikha Bhaag ” [ 2013 ] and ” Chennai Express ” [ 2013 ] .

In this exclusive club , I have 7 students of mine . They are ; Kareena Kapoor [ 4 Films ] , Priyanka Chopra [ 3 Films ] , Katrina Kaif [ 2 Films ] , Ranbir Kapoor [ 2 Films ] , Hritik Roshan [ 1 Film ] , Anushka Sharma [ 1 Film ] and Kalki Koechlin [ 1 Film ] .

Director Sajid Khan [ 1 Film ] and Music Director Shekhar Ravjiani [ 1 Film ] are also there in this club .

Thus out of 22 films in 100 Crore Club , my students are there in 14 films . It is unprecedented . And it comes to a whopping 64 % success ratio . Out of 12 actors , who are there in this club , 7 are my students . It brings my success ratio to 59 % in this category too .

But seems to be passe now . 100 Crore Club is now common . The latest benchmark is 150 Crore Film Club . And till date it has only 4 members . And hold your breath , my students are there in all the 4 films . God ! it comes to 100 % success ratio .

” 3 Idiots ” [ 2009 ] has Kareena Kapoor . ” Ek Tha Tiger ” [ 2012 ] has Katrina Kaif . ” Dabangg 2 ” [ 2012 ] has Arbaaz Khan and ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ” [ 2013 ] has Ranbir Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin .

And they are there in all the categories . Among 3 actors , there is Ranbir Kapoor . Among 4 directors , there is Arbaaz Khan . And among 5 actresses , there are Kareena Kapoor , Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin .

I am bringing out above facts with all the humility at my command . It’s not like blowing one’s own trumpet . In this field of film acting training , some acting trainers have become experts in false claims . Thus it becomes necessary to post facts for the gullible public . In this field where some acting trainers have metamorphosed into pathological liars , it has become imperative to make general public aware of the facts . So I am presenting the facts .

I know that fringe-players will cringe again and immediately start their vitriolic campaign . Upstarts will start hurling abuses . Uncouth will unfurl their flag of arrogance . Stone -pelters will be active again . And I will be subjected to choicest cuss words by uncultured and self-appointed descendents of Stanislavski . But It hardly matters .

I just posted my thought of the day , ” A lion doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of a sheep .”

I agree with the saying in toto .

My Association With ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE 16 , 2013           01.55 A.M.

” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ got released in the last week of May 2013 and it took the nation by storm . It was , though , expected to do good business at the box office but success of this gigantic proportion was not expected .

It collected 62.11 crore in the opening weekend itself . It went on to collect 100 crore in the first week of its release and now it is the 2nd fastest 100 crore earner till date . Its overseas weekend collection stands at 22.10 crore . It is Ranbir Kapoor‘s biggest opener in overseas . It is the biggest opener of 2013 till date .

It is the 3rd biggest all-time grosser in the history of Hindi cinema .

Top 3 grossers in India: #3Idiots – 202 cr, #EkThaTiger – 199 cr, #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani – 155.28 cr [still counting].

Because of the humongous success of ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ , Ranbir Kapoor has become the biggest star in overseas after 3 Khans ; Shah Rukh Khan , Salman Khan and Aamir Khan .

I have every reason to celebrate this success . My name appears in the titles of the film .  I am billed as Diction Coach . My elder son Abhinav Chaturvedi’s name is also there in the credits .

I spent almost a month in Manali with the unit . Ranbir Kapoor is my old student . During this period I worked extensively with Kalki Koechlin and briefly with some others stars .

It has become the norm for acting trainers to revel in fake successes . Revellers beg their friends to promote their film on social networking sites so that they get more shows . And in spite of the limited shows , they brag about its so-called stupendous success . If a film collecting a paltry 50 Lakh is cause to revel for revellers , then I should be ecstatic  because ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ is the 3rd highest grosser of all time . At the time of writing of this blog it has garnered 155.28 crore and it is still going strong .

To present its step by step and day-to-day success , I am re-producing some relevent tweets from the twitter-handle of Shri Taran Adarsh , one of the most respected film journalist of our country . It is for the sceptics , who love to blow their cacophonous trumpets :

  61. #YehJawaaniHaiDeewani review: A wonderful cinematic experience. Watch this celebration of love and get mesmerized! http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/moviemicro/criticreview/id/547969 …

  62. Ranbir and UTV = Lucky combo. #WakeUpSid, #Raajneeti and #Barfi, all Ranbir-UTV films, have been Hits. Will they strike gold with #YJHD?

As an acting trainer / acting tutor I am happy with the accomplishment . This time though I am writing about my association with ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ but I am fortunate enough to have associated with all the 3 all time biggest hits of Hindi cinema . ” 3 Idiots “ has Kareena Kapoor , ” Ek Tha Tiger “ has Katrina Kaif and now ” Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “ has Ranbir Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin . All four are my students .

Self-proclaimed most famous acting school of Mumbai , self-appointed most famous acting institute of India and self-anointed most famous acting academy of bollywood , along with some revellers have only a 50 Lakh grossing film to brag about .

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MARCH  01, 2013          04.05 P.M.
Month of February , 2013 will only be remembered for the unexpected success of films like ; ” Special 26 ” and ” Kai Po Che ! ” . ” Vishwaroop “ also generated sparks and some controversy but it died down soon . Not so impressive performance ofMurder 3 “ was a shocker .
