In a conversation with entertainment portal Pinkvilla, the actor opened up about one of his movies, Jaani Dushman: Ek Anoki Kahani (2002) where he was supposed to die but since the dates for another actor wasn’t available, he was asked to continue the shoot and get paid on per day basis. “The director then called me and my character was put in a coma and then I return and get beaten up again. So basically I got money to get beaten up. This is the movie where there are snakes and all,” revealed the actor during Mission Mangal promotions!
