Late legendary actor Amrish Puri’s grandson Vardhan Puri will be making his Bollywood debut soon, as per a report in Mumbai Mirror. Vardhan will be seen in an upcoming romantic thriller produced by Jayatilal Gada.

Speaking to the daily, 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. It’s a performance-oriented role and in terms of treatment, it will be in a space similar to Gone Girl (Hollywood thriller).”

Vardhan, who in the past has assisted Habib Faisal for Ishaqzaade and Dawaat-e-Ishq and Manish Sharma for Shuddh Desi Romance, reveals that he considers his late grandfather as his God. Vardhan 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.
