V M Badola’s son, popular TV actor Varun Badola, confirmed the demise of his multi-hyphenate father in an emotional post on Instagram on Tuesday.
Varun Badola, who featured with V M Badola in TV serial “Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein”, said his father never sat him down to teach life lessons and instead led by example.
“He set an example so exemplary that I had no choice but… follow. If you think that I am a good actor, blame him. If I write, he has to take the onus. If I sing… well if I had just about 1/10th of his singing talent, I would have become a singer,” he wrote.
The 46-year-old actor said he left Delhi and came to Mumbai because his father’s name was “too big in that city to counter”.
He further wrote that he protested that people judge him and favoured him “unduly” only because he was V M Badola’s son.
