He had another hit in his credit courtesy his brother-in-law Sanjay Dutt and director Mahesh Bhatt's 'Naam' (1986). Otherwise rest of his films like 'Teri Kasam', 'Aaj', 'Goonj', 'Siyasat' and 'Sautela Bhai' has remained unheard of. He tried to make a comeback of sorts in films like 'Hai Meri Jaan' with Neelam and 'Phool' with Madhuri Dixit but was not successful.
There was a possibility of his last film 'Gang' turning the direction of his career. Then it just remained a possibility.
