With the long list of star kids entering the Indian film industry continuing to grow, it’s now the late Amrish Puri’s grandson, Vardhan Puri, who will soon be added to that list.
News has it that he has signed an untitled film under Jayantilal Gada’s production house. Talking about it, Mumbai Mirror reports Vardhan explaining, “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. It’s a performance-oriented role and in terms of treatment it will be in a space similar to (Hollywood director David Fincher’s psychologicalthriller) ‘Gone Girl’.”
Being the grandson of one of India’s most celebrated actors, Puri spoke of his close relationship with him. “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.”
