End of a year is the time to make plan for the coming year. But it is also the time to take into account the year gone by. People often forget this and they remain unaware of their downward slide if there are any. And thus they fail to make amends.

Year End Musings : Vidur Acting Institute in 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 03, 2016           11.00 P.M.

I wrote Year End Musing in 2010 , 2011 & 2012. In those days I used to write about the Hindi films and Hindi film industry in general. Then I thought that there are many websites and many film analysts and trade pundits doing the same job. So what is the need of me writing the same stuff. Therefore I didn’t write Year End Musings in 2013 & 2014.

But this year it occurred to me that I should chronicle yearly success stories and accomplishments of Vidur Acting Institute. In this field, where veterans like Shri Roshan Taneja and Sushri Ashha Chandra are almost retired, there are only few genuine ones left doing their jobs ethically.

This arena is now dominated by few upstarts, who can go to any length to get their prey. They can make false claims, they can Photoshop some pictures and present it as the proof of their recent successes and accomplishments. They have various fee structures of the same course to lure and hoodwink gullible out-of-town students and finally they give free demo class, collect students, click pictures and post it as the new batch of their tottering institute. But it is their moral and ethical values. If they are not bothered, why should I?

I don’t have to compete with them. 4 generations of NEW AGE Hindi film actors are my students. They are :

HRITIK ROSHAN – KAREENA KAPOOR

RANBIR KAPOOR – KATRINA KAIF

VARUN DHAWAH – ALIA BHATT

PULKIT SAMRAT – URVASHI RAUTELA

Apart from them, I have trained modern-day Telugu super stars like ; ANUSHKA SHETTY , ALLU ARJUN , NAG CHAITANYA  & RAM CHARAN. Current Bengali super star DEV is also my student. Why should I lower my standard to the level of some foul-mouth skunks, if I have such an enviable list. I have decided to paint a true picture of my yearly accomplishments with facts and figures. So this year onwards I will keep on posting Year End Musings.

Obituary :

===============

 Amit Mehra :

—————————

Amit Mehra, son of legendary producer-director Prakash Mehra died on February 28, 2015 in the morning after suffering a cardiac attack. He was just 40.

He, in 2013, re-made Prakash Mehra’s super hit classic cult film ” Zanjeer ” [ 1973 ] . Though Amitabh Bachchan, Pran and Jaya Bachchan starrer original ” Zanjeer “ was a super hit but the Ram Charan, Sanjay Dutt and Priyanka Chopra starrer remake was an astounding flop.

His other siblings are Sumeet and Puneet Mehra.

Ajay Wadhavkar :
————————–

Veteran Hindi and Marathi actor Ajay Wadhavkar, who last played the role of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father in the TV show Pavitra Rishta, passed away in Pune.

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’s Film Diary – September 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 02, 2013          08.05 P.M.
Month of September 2013 was not of any great significance for Hindi films .  Remake of the 1973 classic ” Zanjeer “ got released and bombed . ” Shuddha Desi Romance “ from the Yah Raj Films was a sleeper hit . But the real winner of the month was an adult comedy Grand Masti ” , a film directed by Indra Kumar .

===============

Obituary :

===============

Vitthal Bhai Patel : 

—————–—————

Lyricist of Raj Kapoor’s ” Bobby ” [ 1973 ] and former Congress minister of Madhya Pradesh Shri Vitthal Bhai Patel died on September 06 , 2013 in Bhopal .

He became famous after ” Jhoth Bole Kauwwa Kate …….. “ , a song from ” Bobby “ became super hit . This extremely popular song of Rishi Kapoor’s debut film made Vitthal Bhai Patel a household name . Though other songs of ” Bobby “ were written by Anand Bakshi , but this one song of Vitthal Bhai became almost a national anthem of the youth of that time .

He wrote lyrics for other films also but unfortunately could not replicate success of ” Bobby “ .
