This is not the first time Madhavan's son Vedaant has won big at a swimming tournament; he has in the last few years won many medals. In February this year, he had represented Team Maharashtra at the Khelo India 2023 tournament and bagged five gold and two silver medals. Last year, he also bagged a gold medal at the Danish Open in the 800m men freestyle swimming event.

In an interview with DD India in 2022, the ace swimmer had spoken about how supportive both his parents have been. Vedaant had said, "He (R Madhavan) is in a different country but he is staying up late to watch my every race. It’s amazing how even though they are not here physically, they’re always looking after me. Both my mom and dad put so much effort to see me swim.”
