Late actor Amrish Puri’s grandson Vardhan Puri is all set to enter in bollywood. According to reports, the star kid is all set to take the legacy of his late grandfather forward.
Reportedly, the young lad will make his debut in the industry with a romantic thriller to be produced by Jayantilal Gada.
Well, the leading lady opposite Vardhan and the director for the film is yet to be decided by the makers. The film is expected to goes on floors in September and it will be shot in North India.
Vardhan has earlier assisted Habib Faisal on Ishaqzaade and Daawat-e-Ishq, and Manish Sharma on Shuddh Desi Romance.
While talking to an entertainment portal, Vardhan said, “I was supposed to start off with a period-drama with Jayanti bhai, but for some reason that didn’t work out. He approached me later for this film which I loved and immediately gave my nod to. Its a performance-oriented role and in terms of treatment it will be in a space similar to (Hollywood director David Fincher’s psychological thriller) Gone Girl’s.’’
Vardhan, who considers his grandfather as his first teacher said, “Dadu is the God whom I pray to. I was so close to him that I would sleep between him and my grandmother. When he passed away, for me it was like losing the protective cover of an umbrella. It was then, that I decided that if I do something, it would be for my grandfather and this film is an ode to him.”
He counts Virasat, Ghatak, Mr India and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as his favourite films featuring the late veteran.
We wish all the luck to Vardhan!
