New Delhi: Being born to a famous father can have its disadvantages. And Vindoo Dara Singh is one such example. While his father, the great wrestler and actor Dara Singh was known as a 'gentle giant' and loved by one and all, Vindoo himself could never really come out of his father's gigantic shadow until 'Bigg Boss 3' happened.
Being a star son, acting in films came naturally to Vindoo and he made his debut in a film called 'Karan' in 1994 which failed to make a mark at the Box Office. He even appeared in a popular TV series called 'Jai Veer Hanuman', playing the title role of Hanuman, just like his father had played in Ramanand Sagar's 'Ramayan'. But while Dara Singh made his TV debut after enjoying an illustrious career in films in the 1960s, Vindoo's stint on TV could not help the actor in gaining a foothold in the film industry.
