The prominent Television personality, film actor, husband of the co-actress Rajeshwari and son of a well known veteran journalist and actor Vishwa Mohan Badola is undoubtedly a fantastic person, down to earth human being and with affable nature who dosen't have an inkling of proud in him of any kind. I got an opportunity of meeting him in person in a prestigious function of Young Uttarakhand Cine Awards held in New Delhi on 7th of April 2013 where he was invited as Chief Guest along with Miss India Aakriti Gusain. Mr. Badola came straight from Mumbai and sat in the function till the end to pose with the entire team of YUCA and some of the awardees without showing any sense of complacence or disinterest and chatted with good number of people who claimed themselves as his ardent fans and admirers. I also got good opportunity to interact with him for a pretty long time and he showed tremendous interest in the conversation , showing not an inkling of any disinterest despite of the fact that at times he was not even asked for any refreshments or hospitality. He was so generous and simple in his behaviour that when he felt of having some fag he requested someone within us to arrange the same for him without caring for any fixed brand. I took the advantage of the opportunity and presented him my two editions of Uttaranchal's Who's Who compiled, written and edited by me which fortunately also carried his detailed profile along with his photograph. I was really impressed by his simple mannerisms and affable nature and his genuine concern for the promotion and progress of the regional films of Uttarakhand. We should definitely be proud of personalities like Varun Badola who have by the dint of their hard work made a special place for themselves in the Theatre, Television and Film Industry of India. Varun who primarily hails from Pauri Garhwal is heading for his home town to enjoy the environments of the hills alongwith his family and claims proudly that he enjoys his summers in Garhwal every year come what may. I wish Varun all the very best in all his future endeavours.
