Vardhan Puri, the grandson of veteran Bollywood actor Amrish Puri, on Tuesday said everything he knows about cinema and acting came from his late grandfather and he will always remember the conversation he had with him in life.The newcomer, who makes his debut with romantic thriller Yeh Saali Aashiqui, said his grandfather once gave him a key tip for life — to always remember his roots, reports The Indian Express.
“My grandfather gave me this tip. He said many actors, who come from a theatre background to films tend to forget the theatre preparation. And they start behaving in a starry manner, start partying and acquire attitude. They walk around with an entourage. My grandfather told me not to get into all this.
“He said, ‘Do these things only as part of the profession but do not let these things become a part of your core. Let your core be that of a theatre actor. Always behave in the way that you are at your roots, which is that of a theatre actor. If you do that, the chances of failure are less’. That is what my grandfather told me and that is my Bible,” Vardhan told reporters at the film’s trailer launch.
The actor further said his grandfather always told him that preparation is the key to pulling off a character successfully.
The romantic-thriller, directed by Cherag Ruparel and produced by Jayantilal Gada, also marks the debut of Shivaleeka Oberoi.
The film is scheduled to release on November 22.
