Vardhan Puri says his stint as an assistant director helped him in his acting career

Vardhan Puri has just begun his career in the Bollywood industry. Vardhan is the grandson of the veteran late actor Amrish Puri. The actor made his debut in the Hindi film industry with the 2019 film Yeh Saali Aashiqui. However before Vardhan turned towards acting he was an assistant director in films like "Daawat-e-Ishq", "Ishaqzaade" and "Shudh Desi Romance".
 
In a recent interview, Vardhan opened up about his experience as a theatre kid and an assistant director. He said, “I was a theatre actor and I never went on a film set before that. I used to watch films but I didn't know much about filmmaking. When I started working on a film set as an assistant director, I interacted with producers, directors, and heads of various departments, and I worked on film scripts, involved myself in readings, casting process, and production design. It gave me an immense amount of knowledge about filmmaking.”
 
Vardhan also shared his thoughts on OTT platforms and said, "I think it's great to release your film on an OTT platform. If you can reach people's houses with your content then there is nothing better than that, because it increases your audience base. People can watch your film as per their convenience and comfort, so I feel it's a fantastic thing.”
 
Vardhan also said he thinks people will return to theatres once the pandemic is over. Despite the success of digital streaming platforms, Vardhan believes that people will go to theatres again for a larger than life cinematic experience.
