Thus my 12 students appeared in TIMES CELEBEX list of 50 MALE STARS  and 10  students appeared in TIMES CELEBEX list of 50 FEMALE STARS in 2014 .

Thus total percentage of students , who worked in the year 2014  and featured in the TIMES CELEBEX LIST FOR THE YEAR 2014 , comes to 22% . 

22%  is an impressive percentage considering the fact that every day numerous acting institutes are mushrooming in Mumbai and many of them have no quam in adopting unethical means. Several upstarts are also there, crowing their neck out and cawing loudly to get heard and counted.

Vidur’s Film Diary – February 2014


2
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MARCH 01, 2014   11.40 P.M.
As I have stated in the January edition of Vidur’s Film Diary , 2014 is the 25th year of my acting training career. This Silver Jubilee Year is bringing lots of accolades and jubilation to Vidur Acting Institute . It is unfolding several unseen vistas in my professional career as well as personal life.
It all started with Sunny Deol starrer ” Singh Saab The Great ” . Urvashi Rautela , a student of Vidur Acting Institute , made her debut in the film. Then came Salman Khan starrer ” Jai Ho “ . It becomes the first ever film to have 8 students of mine working in one film . Daisy Shah made her debut in this film. After these two films , it was turn of an Abhay Deol film called ” One By Two ” . Preeti Desai [ Miss Great Britain 2006 ] played lead in the film . Then came ” Highway “ . Naina Trivedi , [ a FTII alumni of 2009 batch ] and another student of Vidur Acting Institute , played an important role in it. It is needless to say that Alia Bhatt is the main lead of “ Highway “ and she is also my students . Thus my two students were there in critically acclaimed and box office hit film  ” Highway ” .
Vidur Club News Video , an audio – visual wing of Vidur Acting Institute  , captures this momentous phase of my career and beautifully documents and amply illustrates the accomplishments. I am posting links of the two videos :
1 : ” Jai Ho ” :  http://youtu.be/cZzBa4sHXMQ
2 : ” One By Two ” :  http://youtu.be/0WCMfQiPdGI
It all happened in the span of just 4 months. March 2014 is going to be more promising , more exciting. But before March comes heralding glorious accomplishments, let us have a look on February 2014.

Apart from above mentioned 4 films and my new students making debuts in them , my 11 old students appeared in 07 films and 04 students appeared in 05 Ads . Thus total number of old students working in the month of February comes to 15 .

It is not a mean accomplishment considering the fact that by each passing day acting institutes are mushrooming in every nook and corner of Mumbai. There are some genuine institutes and there are few fake institutes.  While I am openly documenting my achievements , there is deafening silence on the other front . Fakers of faking facts , gaali gurus of facebook acting institute , veteran (?) trainers of blink & miss starlets , crafty craftsmen of craft-less actors are conspicuous by their silence . I have always maintained that one day dust will settle down and everything will become crystal clear. Dust now is settling down rapidly and spineless warriors are standing naked . Their true worth is out in the battlefield . And yes , world is watching .

Urvashi Rautela , Singh Saab The Great & A Poetic Justice


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 28 , 2013           07.10 P.M.

URVASHI RAUTELA ; Miss Universe India 2012 / Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International 2011 World / Miss Asian supermodel 2011 / Miss Teen India 2009

All the above mentioned titles belong to Urvashi Rautela , my student , who just made her debut in ” Singh Saab The Great “ opposite Sunny Deol . The movie is directed by Anil Sharma , who earlier made Gadar – Ek Prem Katha ” [ 2001 ] .

Urvashi Rautela - Batch No. 68

Urvashi Rautela – Batch No. 68

She was sent to me by Rikku ji and joined my acting institute in November 2012 and was in batch no. 68 . When she joined , she was on the verge of signing the film ” Singh Saab The Great ” . There was no time for the stipulated 4 months course . She had just 2 months . So I told her to attend morning and evening both the batches . To my amazement, she did that dutifully and completed the course . Sun or rain she used to come for the class religiously and worked hard , worked very diligently .

Batch No. 68

Batch No. 68

When shooting started she got busy in that . In November 2013 I read that the film is complete and one day suddenly I got the message and was given a link of the title song of her film . I watched the song and was greatly impressed . It was spectacular .

Last week she invited me for the trial of her film ” Singh Saab The Great “ at Sunny Super Sound . I watched the film and liked it . I was particularly impressed by her bewitching screen presence and confident acting . She was opposite Sunny Deol and she is much younger also , still there was no trace of nervousness or discomfort .

” Singh Saab The Great “ got released on November 22 , 2013 and got positive reviews . I am posting relevant tweet from the twitter-handle of trade analyst Taran Adarsh :

#SSTG review: Clapworthy dialogue, undercurrent of emotions should appeal to those who relish desi fares! http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/moviemicro/criticreview/id/549451 …

To know about Urvashi Rautela , you can click the above mentioned link and read about her debut making film and about her performance .

Along with ” Singh Saab The Great “ another big film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein was also released on the same date . But that Karan Johar film was rejected by the critics and public alike . ” Singh Saab The Great “ had only Sunny Deol while ” Gori Tere Pyaar Mein “ had Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan . Punit Malhotra directed this film , while the music was provided by Vishal-Shekhar . Karan Johar’s name was also associated with the film .

Incidentally Kareena Kapoor , Imran Khan , Punit Malhotra ( Director ) and Shekhar Ravjiani ( Music Director Vishal-Shekhar ) of ” Gori Tere Pyaar Mein “ are my students too . I was praying for their success also . But ” Singh Saab The Great “ is special to me and will always remain special because it stars Urvashi Rautela . She is the first student of VIDUR ACTING INSTITUTE  to hit the Hindi Film World . I am not obliged or forced to share her success with anyone else .

For any newcomer , success of the debut film is very important . I don’t want to brag about the collections of ” Singh Saab The Great “ . I would only post few postings from a website : http://www.koimoi.com :

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

1 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Friday Box Office Collections

November 24th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its opening day at the box office kicked off with a good start, better than this Friday’s other release [ Gori Tere Pyaar mein ] . Mainly a single screen film, the film on its 1st Friday made an earning in the range of 5.50 crores to 6 crores, as per early estimates.

The film with great mass value fared the best in U.P, Delhi and Punjab circuits. Being set in the same region, the reliability factor will work in the favor. Though the film’s performance was dismal in Southern states and Bengal, good performance in Bihar, Rajasthan and C.I will help the film’s box office tempo.

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

2 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Saturday Box Office Collections

November 24th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its 1st Saturday showed a marginal pick up at the box office. According to early estimates, the film earned in the range of 10 crores to 12 crores on Saturday. While the film’s first day performance wasn’t exemplary, this one was specifically fashioned keeping in mind tastes of single screen audiences. The film has so far earned in the range of 15 crores to 17 crores at the domestic box office. Though the official figures are still being compiled, the numbers will remain in the same range.

Anil Sharma and Sunny Deol’s association has always worked wonders at the box office. This time too, the duo have tried to create magic by keeping the film simple and impactful. Though the box office performance of the film won’t be mesmeric, it will surely be on the better side.

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

3 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Weekend Box Office Collections

November 25th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great made 16.25 Crores on its first weekend at the domestic box office. The movie has done pretty well compared to the other release this weekend Gori Tere Pyaar Mein!

Sunny Deol in a still from Singh Saab The GreatSunny Deol in a still from Singh Saab The Great

The movies daily breakdown for the 1st weekend is as follows:

Friday: 5.50 Crores

Saturday: 5 Crores

Sunday: 5.75 Crores

With Sunny Deol’s brilliant stunt execution on-screen, the film has a rustic appealing flavor to it which is making it ring with most in mass-based circuits of Punjab, U.P, Delhi-NCR, C.I-Berar and even Rajasthan. Though the film failed dismally in the Southern States as well as West Bengal, it can be expected to hold on well on the weekdays for its popularity in the single screens.

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

4 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Monday Box Office Collections

November 26th, 2013 by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its 1st Monday at the box office saw a customary weekday drop in its numbers. The film which has been faring substantially well so far went on to make 2.75 crores on its 1st Monday. Now, the film’s domestic total rests at 19 crores after the lapse of four days at the box office.

Being a mass catering venture, Singh Saab The Great scored over the other release because of its great hold over single screens. Performing well in many circuits, the film’s primary target at the moment will be recovering its investment from the box office.

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

6 – Singh Saab The Great : 1st Tuesday Box Office Collections

1 hour ago by Koimoi.com Team

Singh Saab The Great on its 1st Tuesday again witnessed a 10% drop in its numbers as it made only 2 crores at the box office. With that the film’s total domestic collections now rests at 21 crores at the domestic box office.

Though the film saw a decent beginning, trade insiders were hopeful that due to Sunny Deol‘s presence and the film’s strong ability to ring with the single screen audiences, the film will fare well. However, Singh Saab The Great could not soar up to its expected amount because of the overpowering performance of Ramleela remained consistent in both single screens and multiplexes even in its second week.

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

The film was made with a moderate budget of 30 crores . And it garnered 21 crores in just 5 days . It is on the verge of becoming a moderate hit .

Singh Saab The Great : daily breakdown for the 1st weekend is as follows:

Friday : 5.50 Crores

Saturday : 5.00 Crores

Sunday : 5.75 Crores

Monday : 2.75 Crores

Tuesday : 2.00 Crores

Now, the film’s domestic total rests at 21.00 crores .

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

As an acting trainer / acting tutor I am proud and feeling happy for Urvashi Rautela . Apart from her , ” Singh Saab The Great “ , has 2 more students of mine . They are Alan Kapoor and Asseem Merchant . Co-producer of the film Dhaval Gada is also my student . But as I said earlier , Urvashi Rautela is the fist student of my new dispensation . I am very happy for her and satisfied with the results .

I am also satisfied and happy because ” Singh Saab The Great “ did offer some poetic justice to my detractors . Some upstarts , who never miss a chance to denigrate me , always make false , fake , preposterous and misleading claims about their non-existent and imaginary success . With , ” Singh Saab The Great “ I celebrate the debut of its leading lady and main female protagonist Urvashi Rautela , who is my student and with the same film , they , the GAALI GURUS  of Facebook Acting School , are celebrating 2 blink-and-miss roles of their students . It is poetic justice . It is God’s way of showing them their place under the sun . The repositories of  the ” craft ” , the crafty craftsmen have fallen flat . I congratulate GAALI GURUS  for their blink and miss success . May they always achieve such negligible milestones !

The Date November 22 , 2013 , The Film , ” Singh Saab The Great “ and The New Star on the Horizon Urvashi Rautela will always be etched in my mind till my last breath .

” Singh Saab The Great “ settles down dust and makes matter clear . Since the release of , ” Singh Saab The Great “ there is virtual deluge of old students to my new office . They must have watched the writing on the wall .

Insignia of Brand VIDUR

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I congratulate Urvashi Rautela for her debut and success .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to wish her well in her glorious journey ahead .

May she shine radiantly and reach the zenith of stardom .

[ I have quoted extensively from the twitter-handle of Taran Adarsh and from the website http://www.koimoi.com . I express my gratitude . ]

VIDUR Acting Institute BANNER – Training Students Since 1990

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 .

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 22, 2013           10.00 P.M.

Success Ratio 25 % .

[ 25 students in the list of 100 celebrities ]

————————————————————————————-

I wrote 1st blog about ” TIMES CELEBEX ” in October 2012 . TIMES CELEBEX is the first ever ranking index of Hindi film stars done by Times of India and is powered by Zoom .

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 .
