Madhavan's son Vedant is a special young lad with a cause. He loves animals and is keen to do whatever it takes to help them. Taking his dedication towards the cause of his four - legged friends further he refused presents for his birthday and requested his friends and family to make donations to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) instead.
Imagine his surprise when PETA sent him a big box filled with goodies to show their appreciation for his support Madhavan publicly thanked PETA for the gesture since his son was so happy and determined to do more for animals. When animal lover Trisha who is a PETA activist herself heard the story she told Madhavan that she thought Vedant was adorable and commended him for his efforts. She was very impressed and said that others should follow Vedant's wonderful example.
