Introduction The name , by which people know me in Mumbai, is Vidur. My real name is Kamal Nayan Chaturvedi. Deoria, a small district in U.P. , is my birth place . I was born in the family of advocates and farmers. I did my post graduation in English Literature from Allahabad University in 1974. In 1989, I came to Mumbai and became an acting trainer. As a free lancer, I was associated with various acting institutes in MUMBAI, PUNE, NASHIK and BENGALURU . On august 08, 2005 , I opened my own acting institute in Mumbai, named, ” KREATING CHARAKTERS “ . I have written two books till date. In 2004, I co-authoured a book, ”SWAYAM VADYA SWAYAM VADAK”. It is the first book on acting in Hindi. Then in 2008, I wrote a booklet of diction for my students. It is titled ” BHASHA AUR UCHCHARAN “. In between, I ventured into a new field , and in 2005 co-directed a Marathi feature film , “BHAKTI HEECH KHARI SHAKTI “ , starring ASHOK SARAF and ALKA KUBAL.
