Vidur’s Film Diary – November 2015

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 06 , 2015           12.35 P.M.

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

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumps 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 in these 6 years. It never happened that a month came and there were no student in any of the 5 fields of entertainment, which my diary covers. 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 :

25 Years Without Raj Kapoor


img_8024

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 29 , 2013           08.40 P.M.

I started writing this blog last month . But I was unable to complete it because of several other pressing matters . It seems so uncanny that I am completing and posting it one day after the birthday of Raj Kapoor’s grandson Ranbir Kapoor .

Last month all the members of Raj Kapoor‘s family assembled to remember him on his 25th Death Anniversary . Even general public and his fans remembered him fondly on that occasion . It is heartening to know that even after 25 years of his demise , mortal Raj Kapoor’s  immortal memory refuses to fade away from public memory .

Raj Kapoor died on June 02 , 1988 . I still remember the day . I was sitting in my house in Deoria , Uttar Pradesh , my native place . In those days when the penetration of television was not much , one had to wait for the daily news papers in the morning . In those days I used to subscribe The Times of India , an English daily and  Janasatta , a Hindi daily . Both the papers carried front page news of his demise with banner headlines .

Remembering Raj Kapoor

Raj Kapoor needs no introduction even today . A Show-Man producer to the hilt , an avant garde director of international repute and a stylized actor of large fan following , Raj Kapoor created history in Indian cinema . He is part of the famous triumvirate of Hindi film industry . Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand being the other members of the famous triumvirate , which ruled the Hindi film world for the longest time .

He , at the age of 24 , became the youngest producer & director with his very first film ” Aag ” [ 1948 ] . Later on he produced 18 films and directed 11 under his own banner R. K. Films .

” Aag ” [ 1948 ] , ” Barsaat ” [ 1949 ] , ” Awaara ” [ 1951 ] , ” Aah ” [ 1953 ] , ” Boot Polish ” [ 1954 ] , ” Shree 420 ” [ 1955 ] , ” Jagte Raho ” [ 1956 ] , ” Ab Dilli Dur Nahin ” [ 1957 ] , ” Jis Desh Men Ganga Behti Hai ” [ 1960 ] , ” Sangam ” [ 1964 ] , “Mera Naam Joker ” [ 1970 ] , ” Kal Aaj Aur Kal ” [ 1971 ] , “Bobby ” [ 1973 ] , ” Dharam Karam ” [ 1975 ] , ” Satyam Shivam Sundaram ” [ 1978 ] , ” Biwi O Biwi ” [ 1981 ] , ” Prem Rog ” [ 1982 ] andRam Teri Ganga Maili ” [ 1985 ] .

I am fortunate that I have seen all the 18 films produced by him . Needless to say that I have also watched all the 11 films , which he directed .

When he died in 1988 , I was in Deoria . One year later , in 1989 , I came to Mumbai . In 1990 I started my career as an acting trainer . Today , as I am writing this blog , I can proudly say that in a way , I am also associated with him . I am very fortunate that I have trained 4 grandchildren of legendary and immortal Raj Kapoor .

In 1999 I started training Kareena Kapoor for Hritik Roshan’s debut film ” Kaho Na … Pyaar Hai ” [ 2000 ] . It is another story that she couldn’t do the film and eventually debuted with Abhishek Bachchan in ” Refugee ” [ 2000 ] . She is daughter of Randhir Kapoor , eldest son of Raj Kapoor .

After Kareena Kapoor , I was called by Neetu Kapoor ji in 2004 to train Ranbir Kapoor , who was about to make his debut with ” Saawariya ” [ 2007 ] . Coincidently I am writing this blog one day after his birthday . He is son of Rishi Kapoor , 2nd son of Raj Kapoor .

In 2012 Raj Kapoor’s youngest daughter Rima Jain ji called me to train her elder son Armaan Jain .  Armaan Jain will make his debut in 2014 with a film being produced by Saif Ali Khan , another student of mine . This untitled film is being directed by Imtiaz Ali’s brother Arif Ali .

Currently , Rima ji’s younger son Aadar Jain is also getting trained by me .

Thus I can say it with great sense of satisfaction that I am fortunate enough to have trained 4 grandchildren of legendary Raj Kapoor .

Young Jagdish Raj

Young Jagdish Raj

I have seen many films of Jagdish Raj . But I first noticed him in a commercial campaign . It was for CHARMINAR Cigarette . He was playing a press photographer in that campaign and his tag line is still ringing in my mind – ” MEHNAT JAB KARTA HOON , TO TASALLI POORI CHAHTA HOON . ”

I can still describe the scene of his ad for a discerning connoisseur of films . With a camera on his shoulder and sweat on his face , he was running on the roads of Bombay [ now Mumbai ] and clicking photos . He stops at a signal , lights a cigarette and says , ” MEHNAT JAB KARTA HOON , TO TASALLI POORI CHAHTA HOON . ” His sweat-filled face is still fresh in my memory .

I , later on , came to know that he is Jagdish Raj . Gradually I saw many of his films and became acquainted with his body of work .

It sad that he is gone . Though he played his innings well and completed his journey satisfactorily but departure of a known figure of our films is sad .

Farewell Hangal Sahab : Itna Sannata Kyon Hai Bhai ?


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST 28, 2012           01.00 A.M.

Death of  Shri A. K. Hangal on August 26, 2012 at the age of 97 was almost expected . He was aged , frail and was suffering from multiple diseases . On August 13 , 2012 he fell in the bathroom of his flat and fractured his right femur bone . On August 16 he was admitted in Asha Parekh Hospital , Santacruz and after 10 days finally succumbed to his injury and other age related complications .

I wrote a blog about him when Hangal Sahab was alive . He hit the headlines for his poor health and penury . Industry people rushed to his succour . But his communist comrades , who are now shedding copious tears after his demise , kept distance and maintained stoic silence .

My Other Blog About Hangal Sahab : A. K. Hangal & His Communist Comrades wp.me/ptyXI-Rn via @VidurChaturvedi

Avtaar Veenit Kishan Hangal a.k.a. A. K. Hangal was an iconic father figure of Hindi cinema . He was first noticed in films like ; Shagird ” [ 1966 ] and ” Teesari Kasam ” [ 1966 ] . I first saw him in ” Shagird “ , a Joy Mukherjee and Saira Banu starrer .

Shagird

Cover of Shagird (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Born in Sialkot , Pakistan , Hangal Sahab spent his childhood in Peshawar . He moved to Karachi before partition of India and was a tailor by profession . He joined theatre very early in his life . In 1949 he moved to India after spending 3 years in jail in Pakistan . In Mumbai he , along with Balraj Sahni and Kaifi Azmi , joined IPTA [ Indian People’s Theatre Association ] and then in 1966 joined Hindi films at the age of 50 .

As stated earlier he started his film journey with ” Shagird ” [ 1966 ] and ” Teesari Kasam ” [ 1966 ] . Later on he worked in films like ;Saat Hindustani ” [ 1969 ] , ” Guddi ” [ 1971 ] , ” Bawarchi ” [ 1972 ] , ” Abhimaan ” [ 1973 ] , ” Namak Haraam ” [ 1973 ] , ” Kora Kagaz ” [ 1974 ] , ” Sholay ” [ 1975 ] , ” Balika Badhu ” [ 1976 ] , ” Aina ” [ 1977 ] , ” Satyam Shivam Sundaram ” [ 1978 ] , ” Basera ‘ [ 1981 ] , ” Kalyug ” [ 1981 ] , ” Kudrat ” [ 1981 ] , ” Naram Garam ” [ 1981 ] , ” Shaukeen ” [ 1982 ] , ” Avtaar ” [ 1983 ] , ” Sharaabi ” [ 1984 ] , ” Arjun ” [ 1985 ] , ” Bewafai ” [ 1985 ] , ” Meri Jung ” [ 1985 ] , ” Ram Teri Ganga Maili ” [ 1985 ] , ” Khoon Bhari Maang ” [ 1988 ] , ” Khalnayak ” [ 1993 ] and  ” Lagaan ” [ 2001 ] .

Lagaan - His Last Film

So from 1966 to his last film in 2001 , it was a 35 year-long and very successful film journey . He acted in almost 200 films .

During his last years , on February 08 , 2011 , he graced the ramp on a wheelchair for fashion designer Riyaz Ganji for his summer line .

Show Stopper for Riyaz Ganji

His last appearance was a TV serial ” Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon ” [ 2012 ] . He gave his voice for Maharaja Ugrasen in animation film ” Krishna Aur Kans ” [ 2012 ] . So in a way his career span is 46 years .

The government of India awarded him the Padma Bhushan in 2006 .

He lived an eventful life and must have left this world with a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment .

Al-vidaah Rahim Chacha ! Your voice will always reverberate in my ears , ” Itna sannata kyon hai bhai ? ”
