Veteran actor Vishwa Mohan Badola, who was associated with a lot of films and television serials over the years, breathed his last on November 23. He was the father of television and Bollywood actor Varun Badola and actress Alka Kaushal. Varun shared an old picture of his father on Instagram and recollected the days when he imparted some lessons to him and his legacy as an artist.
This is what he wrote – “A lot of people crib about the fact that their kids do not listen to them. Many forget that kids are always watching them. My father never sat me down to teach me anything. He made teaching a way of life for me. He set an example so exemplary that I had no choice but… follow (sic).”
He added, “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. I left Delhi and came to Mumbai because his name was too big in that city to counter. I protested that people judge me, they unduly favour me because I am your son. He promptly told me to go and find my own identity some place else if I thought his name was a hinderance (sic).”
