The actor will be seen playing the role of Kripacharya, the chief priest in the court of Hastinapur. "It is good to be part of Ekta's Mahaabhaarat, as unlike the earlier version of the epic which had all the drama, Ekta's Kahaani Humaarey Mahaabhaarat Ki, as the name suggests, is her interpretation of the epic, where she is making it more realistic, focusing on look, costumes, screenplay and other intricate details,", quips Vinod.

Moving back to Mahaabhaarat, the actor is happy to have got the role of Kripacharya. Talking about the mixed response the epic generated in its opening week, the actor says, "Ekta is trying hard to give it her best shot. Earlier, there used to be one channel; but now, the viewers can choose between various channels. So I guess with time, people will accept Ekta's interpretation of Mahaabhaarat and will appreciate it too".
