Sharma spent his early childhood in a Delhi slum.

He joined a small theatre group in Punjabi to perform various strange jobs in Delhi, such as selling tickets or serving teas. He graduated in 1983 from the National School of Drama, India.

In the past 5 to 6 years, Vipin has been a part of several popular films. In films such as ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’ and ‘Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’, he played important roles. These movies broke his stereotypical picture of TZP’s strict and demanding father. He showed himself to be a versatile actor and a new Bollywood entry to look out for.

He comes from a family that is financially poor. He used to go to his neighbors during his childhood to watch TV and ask them to let him watch movies because he couldn’t afford a TV at the time. In a radio interview, he said that one day he smashed his neighbor’s gate because he didn’t let him watch a movie. He vowed to become an actor afterward.
Jannat, Yeh Saali Zindagi, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, Paan Singh Tomar, Gangs of Wasseypur, Raanjhanaa, Satyagraha, Shahid, and Bullet Raja have also worked in many Bollywood movies, such as 1920.
