    Later he tried his luck on the small screen by doing TV serials. He featured as Lord Hanuman in the serial Jai Shri Hanuman, just like his father did in the super-hit Doordarshan serial Ramayan. He also played negative roles in soaps like Ssshhhh...Koi Hai and Karma. He featured in a Punjabi movie Rab Dian Rakhan (1996) directed by his father. But he couldn't strike gold with either movies or TV.

    Vindu had revealed once that he was one of the weakest kids in his school till the 8th grade. His classmates used to make fun of him, knowing that he was Dara Singh's son.

    Vindu further added, "The day I cleared 8th, I went to him and he then started me on push-ups, sit-ups, and pull-ups. Trust me that passion to achieve was something else. By the time the holidays ended, I felt a lot stronger and when I resumed school, I was happy because those tears vanished completely. I was not bullied anymore. By the time I finished the 10th standard, I was the strongest kid in Jamnabai Narsee."

    Dara Singh always encouraged his children to do what they wanted. Vindu and his siblings were all allowed to fail once in their class exams, but they never did! "He encouraged me to have my drinks at home, rather than go out and drink in public places. In fact, on the night before he passed away we shared a drink together," shared Vindu, after the death of his father in 2012.

    When asked why the marriage with Farha failed, Vindu sighed and admitted, "The fights started because of the way our son (Fateh) was being brought up. Farha was turning Fateh into a fanatic. When she decided to leave with our son, I didn't try to stop her. Today we are friends. Farha, Tabu and Aunty (their mom) were also there for Dad's funeral."
