Vinod Tharani, who was earlier seen in soaps like Kaajal on Sony, Pancham on Zee TV, and Kohinoor on Sahara, is back to television with Ekta’s Mahaabhaarat on 9X.
Vinod apart from being an actor, is also a good singer, and also teaches acting and language to many an aspirant. “I have been a coach now for 7 years. Few of the actors who have come to me for coaching are Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandes, Gauri Khan’s cousin Karan Sagoo, Zoha Morani, daughter of Kareem Morani”, says he.
Moving back to Mahaabhaarat, the actor is happy to have got the role of Kripacharya. Talking about the mixed response the epic generated in its opening week, the actor says, “Ekta is trying hard to give it her best shot. Earlier, there used to be one channel; but now, the viewers can choose between various channels. So I guess with time, people will accept Ekta’s interpretation of Mahaabhaarat and will appreciate it too”.
