MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           January 28, 2017           11.50 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary is now in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, unlike so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” // “Best Acting Institutes of India” // “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” // “Best Acting Trainers of India” // “Best Acting Trainers of the World”, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence.

Surprisingly “Top Acting Institutes of Mumbai” // “Top Acting Institutes of India” // “Top Acting Trainers of Mumbai” // “Top Acting Trainers of India” // “Top Acting Trainers of the World” are conspicuous by their absolute silence on this front.  ]

Vidur’s Film Diary – August 2011


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 07 , 2011             06. 00 P.M.

This is the 28th edition of my film diary.

Priyanka Chopra has become a singer and her debut album was released by Universal Music Group and Desi Hits.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge entered 825th week of uninterrupted run in the first week of August.

After some box office duds , Salman Khan starrer ” Boduguard “ took the nation by storm. It is now the biggest first day grosser of all times as for as Hindi films are concerned .

As usual , to show trends of the industry , I am reproducing relevant tweets from the twitter handles of two eminent trade analysts ; Mr. Komal Nahta and Mr. Taran Adarsh.

Komal Nahta

CHALA MUSSADDI OFFICE OFFICE is a dull fare which will nt b able to repeat its success story of d small screen. Review: http://bit.ly/p5mhUf
Komal Nahta

Bodyguard nets a record breaking Rs. 21 cr on opening day. It will easily cross d 70 cr mark in 1st weekend. Report: http://goo.gl/KLa3a

Bodyguard box-office: The Salman Khan starrer nets a superb Rs. 83.50 crore over the 1st weekend. Report – http://bit.ly/qkLJjg

 Business Talk with Taran Adarsh: ‘Singham’ & ‘Z.N.M.D.’ emerge gigantic hits bit.ly/3Ozjuw

 Overseas B.O.: ‘Z.N.M.D.’ continues to dominate… ‘Aarakshan’ & ‘Bodyguard’ keenly awaited bit.ly/CmbT0

Not A Love Story: Started on a weak note. Business did increase marginally at few places, but the jump was missing. Overall, poor.

Chatur Singh 2 Stars: Despite starring well-known stars, fetched a shockingly low start and remained poor all through the weekend. Flop.

Like I had predicted yesterday afternoon, the 1st day estimates of ‘Bodyguard’ are 20 cr + nett. Almost 21 cr, as per early tracking.

Okay, here are the *actual* figures of ‘Bodyguard’ in India on Wednesday: Rs 21.51 cr nett. That’s a new record!

#Bodyguard – Friday *rough estimates* Rs 13.5 cr. 3-day total stands at Rs 54.5 cr nett. Sat should be big, Sun should be bigger.

Bodyguard actuals: Wed 21.60 cr, Thu 19.50 cr, Fri 14.08 cr, Sat 15.07 cr, Sun 18.68 cr. Total 88.93 cr nett.

Obituary :
==========
Shammi Kapoor : On August 14 , 2011 , with the death of Shammi Kapoor , not only an artiste was dead , but an era ended. This glorious era started in 1953 with ” Jeevan Jyoti ” , a film which he signed first but ” Rail Ka Dibba  “ was released first in the same year. This era will soon be part of history with the release of ” Rockstar “ in 2011 .
I am just mentioning about Shammi ji here . I will soon write a separate blog on him and his 58 year long career.
Shanti Das :  Well known art director Shanti Das died in Mumbai on August 14 , 2011 . He had worked with Shammi Kapoor in many films and its an uncanny coincidence that he died on the same day .
In his 40 year long career he worked in 200 films with stalwarts like ; Raj Kapoor , Bimal Roy , Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Subodh Mukherjee . Shammi Kapoor’s ” Junglee “ was his first big hit . He won many Filmfare award for his films and he got Dada Sahab Phalke Award also in 2000.
Samir Chanda : Another eminent art director Samir Chanda died on August 18 , 2011 in Mumbai. He was only 54 at the time of his death. He began his career with Subhash Ghai’s ” Ram Lakhan “ and continued till “ Black & White ” . His other works were ” Raavan ” , ” Rang De  Basanti “ and ” Delhi 6 ” . It is sad that a promising life ended at such a young age .

Shandar Amrohi : The elder son of film – maker Kamal Amrohi and step son of legendary Meena Kumari died in Goa on August 21 , 2011 at the age of 68.
Shandar Amrohi worked as an actor in ” Razia Sultan “ , a film directed by his father Kamal Amrohi . Though his acting career was short – lived. At the time of his death he was in Goa shooting a music vedio in memory of his stepmother Meena Kumari .
Barkha Roy was penning his biography ” Nowhere To Somewhere ” , which is now complete .
