He was quoted as saying, "I literally left my body. I could feel everyone trying to resuscitate me. I remember my whole life flashing before my eyes, and surprisingly, I wasn't thinking about winning awards or anything like that. The only thing I cared about was that I wanted to live because I did not want to leave my family so soon." In 2014 he made a special appearance in Dharmendra's and Gippy Grewal's movie Double Di Trouble.
