MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 30, 2017           11.40 P.M.

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.

This is precisely the reason, I started chronicling my accomplishments and write about the year gone by. Here I am chronicling some shinning achievements of the past and also what happened to me on the career front in 2016.

Vidur Acting Institute & 10 National Film Awards


IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           May 22 , 2016           11.00 P.M.

With this post, I want to tell the world that VIDUR Acting Institute  has a wonderful presence in the arena of NATIONAL FILM AWARDS.

This year in 2016 my student Kalki Koechlin won Jury Best Actor Award for her film ” MARGARITA WITH A STRAW “. When I read the news and started counting , I was surprised to note that till date my 10 students have won NATIONAL FILM AWARDS in different categories.

As I have decide to be truthful in all my reporting, I would like to confess that out of 10 NATIONAL FILM AWARD winning personalities, I have to share credit of 05 with Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor as I trained them there as their personal acting coach. They are : Saif Ali Khan , Priyanka Chopra , Arjun Rampal , Arbaaz Khan & John Abraham . 

But the remaining 05 are my own students. They are : Prakash Jha [ 03 Time Winner ] Jugal Hansraj & Kalki Koechlin .

Kalki is a wonderful actor and her portrayals are always very poignant and sensitive. After her debut film ” Dev D ” , she was memorable in ” Margarita With A Straw “.

Satyameva Jayate

 सत्यमेव जयते

In the era of falsehood, VIDUR Acting Institute has chosen the tortuous path of truthfulness. In the season of deceit, VIDUR Acting Institute  has taken the pledge of being factually correct. You can go to the National Film Award website and can check and verify the below mentioned names of winners and their films. But do check the tall claims of so many other so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Institutes of India”. Grill the so-called “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Trainers of India” and you will see through their hollow claims. That is the reason I say ;

सत्यमेव जयते नानृतम् ,
सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः ।
येनाक्रमन्त्यृषयो ह्याप्तकामा ,
यत्र तत् सत्यस्य परमं निधानम् ॥

……………….. मुण्डक उपनिषद्

English Translation

Truth alone triumphs ; not falsehood.
Through truth the divine path is spread out ,
by which the sages , whose desires have been completely fulfilled, reach where that supreme treasure of Truth resides.

…………………………………… Muṇḍaka Upaniṣad

My 3 students got Screen Awards and now 2 students have won Filmfare Award also . This way my 5 students have won these two most prestigious and celebrated awards in 2013 . The year started with a bang and seems to be very promising .

There are people who jump to celebrate so-called stupendous success of some obscure serial . On the basis of such serials they proudly announce that they are the best in bollywood . I don’t have courage to boast and blow my own trumpet . My acting academy may not be the best acting academy of Mumbai or it may not be the best acting institute of India but my students are winning Screen and Filmfare Awards . It might not be the best acting school of Bollywood but it is not for nothing that 5 actors trained by me got the two most prestigious awards this year .

Through this blog I would like to celebrate the success of my students , Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma , who got Filmfare Awards this year .

I congratulate all the above mentioned students on behalf of all the current students and staff of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters . May they achieve much more in the coming year .

I have no audacity to declare my acting academy as the best acting academy of Mumbai or the best acting institute of India . It is definitely not the best acting school of Bollywood . My acting class is one among the many acting classes of Mumbai .

And also I have no time to celebrate the success of 3 /4 years old serials . I don’t have time for remembrances . At Vidur’s Kreating Charakters the Saga still continues . Through this blog I would like to celebrate the success of my students , Ranbir Kapoor , Priyanka Chopra and Katrina Kaif , who got awards in January 2013 and are destined to rule the film industry for many more years to come .

I , on behalf of all the current students and staff of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , congratulate all the above mentioned award-winning personalities and my students.

May they shine in their chosen field .

[ I have taken the list of the winners from the blog posting of Nikhil on http://www.bollywoodtadka.com  I express my gratitude . ]

Vidur’s Film Diary – June 2012


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 01 , 2012           01.00 A.M.

First half of 2012 is over . There are few sterling successes and some significant emerging new trends in the Hindi film industry . Big budget films like ;  Agneepath ” , ” Houseful 2 “ and  Rowdy Rathore  earned mega bucks and entered in the prestigious 100 crore club . Small budget films like ;  ” Ishaqzaade ” , ” Kahaani ” , ” Vicky Donor ” , ” Paan Singh TomarandGangs of Wasseypur won praise and made money also . ” Ishaqzaade ”  marks entry of a fresh face Arjun Kapoor , who is making waves . ” Gangs Of Wasseypur “ heralds emergence of new Hindi cinema .

As usual , re – posting some of the relevant tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Komal Nahta and Mr. Taran Adarsh :

Tweets

Straight B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R! That’s what Rowdy Rathore is!! Next 100-crore film? All chances!

RR 1st day 15 crore; 2nd day 14.5 crore; 3rd day 18.5 crore. Total weekend: an astounding 48 crore!

@enter10meAnt Shanghai opens to poor houses. Too Class-appealing, too Confusing, hence not Commercial. Losing venture

Dull opening for Shanghai. Multiplexes around 15-30%. Single-screen cinemas terribly low. Sad!

Opening of Ferrari on lower side. In premium multiplexes, opening is fair

Ferrari Ki Sawaari 1st day about 2.9 to 3 crore. Today should be better than Friday

TMK 1st day: a little over 5 crore. GOW: around 2.75 crore. Both openings below the mark

#Shanghai [Week 2]: Fri 75 lacs, Sat 1 cr, Sun 1.25 cr, Mon 35 lacs, Tue 25 lacs. Total: 21.10 cr nett. Disappointing!

#RowdyRathore opening is fantabulous at single screens, plexes are good, should be great by noon/evening. Trends indicate Rs 15 cr Friday.

#RowdyRathore is @akshaykumar ‘s #Dabangg. His biggest opener!

#RowdyRathore *India* Fri 15.10 cr nett. Biggest non-holiday Friday opener. O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-

#RowdyRathore is the third biggest opener ever, after #Agneepath and #Bodyguard. Incidentally, all three films are remakes

#RowdyRathore has biggest non-holiday weekend, collects Rs 48.5 cr + nett http://bit.ly/Mb3dpw

#RowdyRathore has smashed previous records by a big margin. Collects a colossal Rs 48.3 cr + nett in its first 3 days… contd.

#RowdyRathore biz is *better* than this year’s first Blockbuster #Agneepath, if one compares Friday to Sunday numbers… contd.

#RowdyRathore Breakup:- Fri 15.1 cr, Sat 14.7 cr, Sun 18.5 cr +. Total: Rs 48.5 cr + nett. Biggest non-holiday weekend. Fantabulous

#Ishaqzaade Week 4 – Rs 1.46 cr. Total: Rs 47.19 cr nett. Fantastic!

#RowdyRathore smashed previous records in many circuits. Has performed exceptionally well at single screens and plexes… contd

Update: #Shanghai opens to dull response http://bit.ly/Ls3u92

#RowdyRathore has crossed Rs 100 cr nett mark at the end of Weekend 2. Has performed exceptionally well at single screens as well as plexes.

#RowdyRathore joins the Rs 100 crore club: @taran_adarsh on IBN Live http://bit.ly/KyN1KM

#Shanghai started slow, but showed decent growth at hi-end multiplexes on Sat and Sun. However, the overall business is below the mark.

#RowdyRathore is unstoppable. Remains first choice of moviegoers. Collected a humungous Rs 35 cr nett in Week 2. Total: Rs 114.5 cr nett.

Update: #FerrariKiSawaari is decent at select screens, reports positive, should grow over the weekend http://bit.ly/rCkwLY

#RowdyRathore [Week 3]: Fri 2.25 cr, Sat 2.90 cr, Sun 4.50 cr, Mon 1.75 cr, Tue 1.70 cr. Total: 127.6 cr nett. Blockbuster.

#FerrariKiSawaari [Week 1]: Fri 3.04 cr, Sat 4.50 cr, Sun 6.37 cr, Mon 1.75 cr, Tue 1.60 cr. Total: 17.26 cr nett. Steady at plexe

#Shanghai [Week 2]: Fri 75 lacs, Sat 1 cr, Sun 1.25 cr, Mon 35 lacs, Tue 25 lacs. Total: 21.10 cr nett. Disappointing!

Update: Both #TeriMeriKahaani and #GOW are showing an upward trend. At some places, #GOW is leading, at some #TeriMeriKahaani.

#FerrariKiSawaari fared the best in Mumbai-Maharashtra belt and Delhi. Collected Rs 20.96 cr nett in Week 1. Satisfactory numbers!

#RowdyRathore emerges the fourth highest grosser in India, after #3Idiots, #Bodyguard and #Dabangg.

#GOW *actuals* Fri 3.03 cr, Sat 3.60 cr, Sun 4.37 cr, Mon 1.95 cr. Total: Rs 12.95 cr nett. Rock-steady!

#GOW *actuals* Fri 3.03 cr, Sat 3.60 cr, Sun 4.37 cr, Mon 1.95 cr, Tue 1.80 cr. Total: Rs 14.75 cr nett. Excellent on weekdays!

Biz Talk: #GOW floats, #TeriMeriKahaani sinks http://bit.ly/MA6jlo

#FerrariKiSawaari is holding well, despite new releases. Week 2: Fri-Sun – 5.04 cr, Mon – 65 lacs, Tue – 60 lacs. Total: Rs 27 cr + nett.
