One of his most remembered Gujarati TV serials is Narasimha Mehta, the celebrated poet and disciple of Lord Krishna. His role of Mahatma Gandhi in the 2007 film Gandhi, My Father put him on the international map.

Feroz Abbas Khan (director of Gandhi, My Father and a veteran theatre personality) had approached him for Gandhi's role in his famous play Mahatma v/s Gandhi. But due to date problems, the actor had to let go of the project. However, Feroz was bent on casting him as Gandhi and again approached him for Gandhi, My Father, which finally materialized.

They had another marriage together in 1981 again when their parents decided to do the marriage in grand scale.
