Actor Vinod Singh is known from his role in Sony TV's Ayuhsman back in 2004 and since then has scaled the heights of reaching 250+ commercials, 10+ shows and 2 movies. However, it is not as rosy as it appears – He has faced intense struggle to reach where is today and is still having to battle demons of his past!
An old issue from 2004 is still haunting him and is creating ripples in his professional life. While shooting back in 2004, a crew member from outside came to the sets for some shoot and was not aware of the leads of the show. He apparently misbehaved with one of the female leads, which made Vinod angry and he went on to hit the crew member. The crew member was then taken to police custody.
The Incident has blemished the actor's professional career as it did not go down well with the producer of the show. The producer felt that Vinod's demeanour was unprofessional and since then has created obstacles for his return on television.The producer had back in 2004 even lodged a false complaint against Vinod accusing him of hitting the responsible crew member with an iron rod.
According to sources the producers who have an established production house now have been sending letters out to other production houses to not to cast Vinod Singh. Vinod Singh who has even been signed for a new show on a new channel named GTalk, is still waiting for the production house to call him.
When we asked Vinod Singh about this he confirmed the story –"Yes, it did happen with me and I have since then been struggling. The reason I have come so far is because of my talent and I can't do much as I am just an actor. "
When we contacted casting head Dimpy Sinha she said-" I am supporting the truth and I don't care what other people say. There are many directors and producers who even abuse their artists while working on sets and especially if one artist stands up against the truth, they have to bear the brunt of it rest of their live."
