Speaking to a leading daily, his co-star, Deepshikha Nagpal said, "Oh my God! This is really shocking. I spoke to him just a couple of days ago. I still can’t believe he is no more. He was a wonderful guy and fantastic actor. I met him during the shoot of my film ‘Yeh Dooriyan’ and he was a thorough professional. Salman Khan, who he held in high regards, had recommended him to me as I was looking for someone to play the character of Aditya. He would drop by my place quite often. He was going through a rough patch in terms of finances and work. I would always encourage him to be positive. I am also close to his wife. He doted on his daughter. His wife would also advise him to speak to me whenever he felt low. I am still in a state of shock. May his soul rest in peace and God give strength to his family."
