Default EXCLUSIVE! Vardhan Puri Reveals 5 Unknown Things About His Grandfather: “Dilip Kumar

Some actors are etched in our memories forever because of the characters they play. One such gem in Bollywood was the ace actor, Amrish Puri. Amrish Puri worked in the film industry for more than 3 decades and acted in more than 500 films.

For some people, he is the Babuji from Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and for some, he will be the bad guy Mogambo from Mr India. The late actor played every character with dedication and honesty. Koimoi spoke to Amrish Puri’s grandson Vardhan Puri and we asked him 5 unknown things about his grandfather’s iconic characters. From DDLJ to Virasat, Vardhan shared with us some interesting and amazing facts about the Shakti actor’s Bollywood journey.

In Virasat, the role of Raja Thakur was originally to be played by Dilip Kumar Sahab. But incidentally, when they went to Dilip Sahab, he told the makers that ‘I have a feeling Amrish Puri will be the best person to play this. He is made for the role’. That’s when the producers got convinced by directors. They said that Priyan ji, Amrish ji is the only person who can play this role and even Dilip Sahab was right. Even his character in Virasat had some shades of my great grandfather. That was a role very close to my grandfather and he always said that was one of the favourite performances of myself.

My grandfather has so much respect for his mentors like Satyadev Dubey, Govind Nihalani, Shyam Benegal and Girish Karnad that even he became a superstar, he always continued charging them exactly what he used to charge when he was a nobody and when they had given him work. When they had asked him to quote his price once he became very successful, he said that I want you to pay me exactly what you used to pay me earlier because nothing’s changed. That is something they always remember.
