When asked about his internship days, this is what he had to say, “On the sets, among other things, I used to work closely with all the actors, and that taught me a lot. Afterward, I got trained in acting and watched a lot of world cinema and all of Charlie Chaplin’s films. Chaplin is my greatest influence. I have had to disconnect with all my friends for over 18 months to prepare for my debut film. That’s something the character demanded.”

Amrish Puri is a legendary actor. And according to his grandson, he has been a great influence on him. A source of inspirations and courage, Vardhan has learned a lot from his ‘dadu.’ He also says that his favorite movies are Virasat, Mr. India, Muskurahat, Gardish, and even Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and fondly remembers being a part of the readings from 1995 till 2005.
