He claimed that after losing his father and receiving a medical diagnosis, he had lost faith in his career.[1]As he discussed this, he said,

    “Things were different then. I had no grievances regarding the sector. I was dissatisfied with my life. At the time, my father had already passed away, and I was also unwell. Therefore, situations such as these cause you to seriously consider how you are spending your time”

    He stated,

    “I had a serious medical condition. My father passed away shortly after 15 liters of pus were removed from my stomach by medical professionals. I was beginning to lose my life. I then traveled to Rishikesh and began cooking omelets at a dhaba by the Ganga River. I will receive Rs 150 if I wash 50 cups a day, according to the owner of the dhaba. However, I later realized that I need money to survive”

    The actor credited director Rohit Shetty in the same interview for helping him make a successful return to the movie business. He declared,

    After a day of work, customers at the dhaba began to recognise me. They used to ask to take pictures with me and say, “Arre aap to Golmaal mein the na.” My mother would then beg me to come home over the phone while sobbing. In between all of this, I received a call from Rohit Shetty offering me a part in All the Best. I made the decision to return to work at that point.
