Then she cast him as the main villain in Takht and he agreed but the film didn’t happen. And again during Covid, she reached out for Pathaan, and said that is not a big role but it is a very important role since he’s the one who changes the course of the film.

He is currently getting a lot of applause for his negative role of Hamid Iqbal in Gadar 2. The actor also revealed that during the shooting of the film, he was taken to the location where the original hand pump scene for Gadar- Ek Prem Katha was shot – Lucknow’s La Martiniere College. He was told that he was supposed to start from there and it made him very nervous, but he was able to pull it off. Even Anil Sharma appreciated him. He also shared that at one point during the shooting of the film, he felt the legendary Amrish Puri was present on the set and told him that he has his blessings.
