Varun Badola (born 7 January 1974) is an Indian actor, known largely for his roles on television.[1].

Early life[edit | edit source]

Varun Badola was born on 7 January 1974.[2] His father is a known artist, Vishwa Mohan Badola. He has two elder sisters — Alka, who is married and has appeared in the TV serial Kumkum and Qubool Hai,[3] and Kalindi, who is a radio jockey. His family hails from Garhwal, Uttarakhand.[4][5]

Badola spent the early part of his childhood in Allahabad after which he lived in New Delhi. He did his schooling from Sardar Patel Vidyalaya in New Delhi. After completing college, he started working to fulfill his ambition to become an actor.[5]

Acting career[edit | edit source]

Badola started his creative career as a costume coordinator followed by eight years experience of writing and directing.[4] He assisted Tigmanshu Dhulia in Haasil and Charas, apart from acting in the two films.[4] He had decided to take a break from directing to do some acting when he was offered the television serial Astitva.. Ek Prem Kahani[4].

Some of his successful soaps are include Banegi Apni Baat, Koshish - Ek Asha, Aroona Irani's Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chand, and Astitva... Ek Prem Kahani.[4] He shot to fame when he played the role of a mentally disabled person on the television show Koshish produced by Balaji Telefilms, which proved to be a super-hit on Zee TV. Badola has directed and written the script for the show Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein.

He is an accomplished singer and dancer as well, having shown his talents on reality television shows including the celebrity dance show named Nach Baliye 2 with his wife Rajeshwari where he was one of the semi-finalists.[5] He is known to be an extremely hard-working actor and has been called television's Aamir Khan for his dedication[6] and Dev Anand for his intense on-screen romance.

Badola and his wife Rajeshwari worked together on a play for the first time in a production called Shabd Leela which was based on Dr. Dharamveer Bharati's powerful love letters to his wife.[7] He participated in the Celebrity Cricket League as a member of the team Mumbai Heroes, as an all-rounder.

Personal life[edit | edit source]

External links[edit | edit source]

Description[edit source]

This metadata template links Wikipedia articles to various library (and other) catalogue systems, for biographies and other topics.

This template draws most of its values from Wikidata, but they can be overridden by locally entered data. Adding the data to Wikidata is preferable.

If there is no information in Wikidata for the specific subject, an empty instance of this template will be dormant, meaning it will be invisible on the rendered page. Thus, using this template on a page with no authority information is harmless.

An empty instance of this template stays dormant in an article, until values are added to Wikidata, when it will then display them, so this template should be added to all biographies, whether or not there are authority control identifiers in Wikidata already.

User pages[edit source]

The template may also be placed on user pages, but then data must be entered locally.

Data types[edit source]

Wikidata content is used as fallback for all identifiers.

The template validates digits for all values and shows an error if the check fails.

Wherever possible, the template also generates a link to WorldCat Identities, using VIAF or LCCN values, or manually via |WORLDCATID=.

Position[edit source]

As a metadata template, the Authority control template should be placed after the external links section and navigation templates, right before the categories.

Usage[edit source]

As a general guideline:

1: insert the empty version,
2: click "Show preview" to see which sources are automatically pulled from Wikidata,
3a: if you know of more sources, add them in the template using their named parameter,
3b: alternatively, consider adding those sources to the article's "Wikidata item", so that all versions of Wikipedia will automatically benefit.

In addition to the mixed-case parameter names listed on this page, the template also supports all-lowercase alias names of all parameters (except for deprecated ones).

Template loop detected: Template:Authority control

Rendering[edit source]

The template is split into seven sections: "General", "National libraries", "Art galleries and museums", "Art research institutes", "Biographical dictionaries", "Scientific databases", and "Other". If all identifiers are in the same section, |state= is ignored, and the template displays on one line: Template loop detected: Template:Authority control Otherwise, the template displays as a navbox with a header: Template loop detected: Template:Authority control

Initial visibility: currently defaults to autocollapse

To set this template's initial visibility, the |state= parameter may be used:

  • |state=collapsed: {{Varun Badola|state=collapsed}} to show the template collapsed, i.e., hidden apart from its title bar
  • |state=expanded: {{Varun Badola|state=expanded}} to show the template expanded, i.e., fully visible
  • |state=autocollapse: {{Varun Badola|state=autocollapse}}
    • shows the template collapsed to the title bar if there is a {{navbar}}, a {{sidebar}}, or some other table on the page with the collapsible attribute
    • shows the template in its expanded state if there are no other collapsible items on the page

If the |state= parameter in the template on this page is not set, the template's initial visibility is taken from the |default= parameter in the Collapsible option template. For the template on this page, that currently evaluates to autocollapse.
