Even after almost three years, I still feel the pain of losing her. In 2019, she died due to a heart attack. I was with her just a day before because she wasn’t feeling well. But as I had work commitments, I had to return to the set. The next day I got a call saying she had passed away, so I rushed to the airport, but there were no flights for several hours to Chandigarh. I remember I was in a state of shock and had to spend long hours at the airport until I got a flight. Looking at mothers with their kids at the airport, I kept crying. I stayed in my hometown Malerkota in Punjab for a month after that. That’s when my sister told me to return to Mumbai and get back to work. It hasn’t been easy, but I am trying”.

In an interview, he talked about his role in the television show and said,
When I signed Saath Nibhana Saathiya, I never expected it to do so well. As it is, the show was slotted for 7 pm! I’m really enjoying being Ahem, actually the character is not bad at all but the situations are such that make him lose temper. I love it when I hear from the audience that they like me in the show. Recently Devoleena Bhattacharjee replaced Jiaa Manek for the character of Gopi. I felt very bad when I got to know that Jiaa has made an exit from the show but this industry is such that one has to move on. Devoleena is a very dedicated and a humble person and I like working with her.”
