On the occasion of the 87th birth anniversary of Amrish Puri, Vardhan Puri EXCLUSIVELY spoke to Bollywood Hungama and shared some unseen moments with his grandfather. In the pictures, he is a toddler dressed in a traditional outfit whilst sharing candid moments with his grandparents. He said, “Today, my family and I are extremely emotional as we miss dadu and dadi and the most amazing times we have spent with them – the warmth, the affection and the unconditional love and care. But, we feel better when we tell ourselves that dadu and dadi are still around us, blessing us, looking after us and guiding us. We will be having a pooja at home to celebrate dadu’s birthday and will be eating all his favourite dishes at our family dinner.”
Vardhan Puri had earlier revealed that he and his grandfather would watch classic movies of Dilip Kumar, Robert DeNiro. They had even watched The Godfather and The Shawshank Redemption together. His favourite Amrish Puri films include Virasat, Ghatak, Mr India and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
