MUMBAI: Actor R Madhavan’s 12-year-old son Vedaant won a bronze medal for India in the 1,500 meter freestyle at the Thailand Age Group Swimming Championship 2018 and the actor was obviously elated.

Announcing it on Instagram, the 3 Idiots actor wrote, “Proud moment for Sarita (his wife) and I, as Vedaant wins his first medal for India in an international swim meet in Thailand today. Thank you for all your blessings.”

He posted a photograph of his son holding the medal and certificate with the backdrop of a stadium. Madhavan also put up a video from the medal distribution ceremony.

Meanwhile, the 47-year-old actor is no longer a part of the Rohit Shetty’s action drama Simmba, in which he was set to play the villain.

The movie, directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Dharma Productions, presented Ranveer Singh as a cop, Sangram Bhalerao and also features Sara Ali Khan in the female lead.

Simmba is inspired by Jr NTR’s Telugu film Temper.
