I wanted to make name for myself. I didn’t want to be just R Madhavan's son.” The star kid also opened up on the sacrifices his parents have made for him. “They are always looking after me. Both put so much effort. One of the main sacrifices my parents made was to shift to Dubai,” he said.

R Madhavan has always been vocal about his support for his son being an Olympics aspirant. The Madhavan family even shifted to Dubai last year so Vedaant can prepare for the tournament easily.
