However, he could not fulfil his promise because of the actor’s sudden death in June 2020. Speaking about it, he said,
  • He was passionate about cricket. On the last day of the shoot, I had promised him I’d not meet him till I became a decent level cricketer. This year, when I got selected to play for Mumbai Indians, I decided to meet him, but then the lockdown happened and now he is no more. I wish the lockdown wouldn’t have been there, at least then I would have been able to fulfil the promise I made to him. I failed to do so. I wanted to keep the promise. I regret it.”
