    Vinod Mehra was born on 13th February 1945. Mehra made his debut in the 1958 film Raagni as a child artist playing the younger version of the character played by Kishore Kumar. After playing a few more minor roles as a child, he started his adult film career in 1971 with the film Lal Patthar.

    He played the lead role in some of his earlier films but often acted in many multi-starrer films as the secondary lead or played supporting roles such as a brother, friend, uncle, father and police officer. He worked with many actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, Rajesh Khanna and Dharmendra etc. His frequent female co-stars included Rekha and Bindiya Goswami. Some of his prominent films were Amar Prem, Nagin, Jaani Dushman, Khud-daar. He received Filmfare Nominations as Best Supporting Actor for Anurodh (1977), Amardeep (1979), and Bemisaal(1982). He had turned producer and director with the film Gurudev in the late 1980s, but he suddenly died of a heart attack before completion of the film at the age of 45 in October 1990. His last wife was Kiran, and that marriage lasted until his death. With Kiran he had two children Soniya and Rohan. Soniya was born in 1988 and was 2 years old when Vinod died. After their father's death, Soniya and Rohan were brought up in Kenya and then Soniya went to London for further education.
