R Madhavan seems to be taking his role of a coach from Saala Khadoos (2016) a little too seriously these days!
According to a report in Hindustan Times, Madhavan has now decided to be a swim coach of his son Vedaant who is a state-level swimmer.
Interestingly, the talented actor, who is a good swimmer himself, is elated that his son, Vedaant has created a mark for himself in swimming at the state level.
He has now decided to give him swimming lessons during his free time!
A source revealed to HT, “Recently, Madhavan took to Twitter to talk about his son’s achievement. The proud father was ecstatic as his son, who had taken part in a swimming competition, had completed a four km swimathon in 57 minutes. The 12-year-old is extremely enthusiastic about swimming and has been training since the past couple of years. He has now graduated to taking part in state level competitions. Madhavan is very close to his son and wants to focus on his swimming. He will accordingly take time out from his busy shoot schedules to impart swimming lessons to his son.”
Talking about it, Madhavan says “Being a parent, it is heartening to see your child wake up every day at 5.45 in the morning to pursue his passion and then manage school as well. Vedaant won at the state level swim meet and I’m so excited to help him train for the next level,”
Interestingly, when Madhavan was training in boxing for Saala Khadoos, his son expressed an interest in learning the sport as well. Madhavan who learnt boxing from some professionals from Thailand, took Veedant to Thailand to train in the sport.
