Vedaant Madhavan also won the silver medal in the 1500m freestyle event at the Danish Open swimming meet
Actor R Madhavan’s son Vedaant has done it again and this time it’s a gold medal. A day after winning silver in the Danish Open swimming meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, the 16-year-old has made the country proud once again. Vedaant clocked 8:17:28 in the men’s 800m freestyle and bagged the first position in the race.
Madhavan, who is beaming with pride at his son’s feat, shared the achievement via his Instagram profile. Posting a clip of Vedaant receiving the gold medal, the actor wrote, “GOLD.” With all your blessings and God’s greatest the winning streak continues. Today it’s a GOLD in 800m for Vedaant Madhavan. “Thanking Vedaant’s coach Pradeep Kumar, the swimming federation of India, and the entire team behind his son’s success, Madhavan wrote that he is “overwhelmed and humbled.”
Earlier, the Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein actor opened up about his son not taking up acting. He stated that as parents, they have always believed in going along with what their child wanted to do in life. “He’s been winning swimming championships all across the world and making us very proud,” he said.
The actor also had a word of advice for all star-parents, stating that they should let their child fly. Madhavan added that that he has no regrets about Vedaant choosing not to be an actor. “His chosen vocation is far more important to me than my own career,” he said.
This is not the first win for the athlete. Earlier last year, he won a bronze medal at the Latvia Open. He had also proved his talent at the Junior National Aquatic Championships last year, as he brought home seven medals.
Madhavan, on the other hand, is gearing up to make his debut as a director with Rocketry: The Nambi Effect. He had announced a new release date for the film – July 1st, 2022. The anticipation for the actor’s directorial debut is high, as the trailer of the biographical drama has created a buzz among the audience.
