Amid the lockdown in May, the actor was admitted to ICU. He had taken to his Facebook account to share the news and also asked for financial assistance from his well-wishers through the platform.

After his desperate appeal, filmmakers like Hansal Mehta, Bejoy Nambiar and others had reached out to help.
