There is another man named Goonga Sain who plays dhol at the same time. Pappu Sain plays dhol downstairs while Goonga Sain plays upstairs.

Sain was an original member of the band Overload and played with the band for three years.[2] Pappu Sain left the band Overload due to illness which prevents him from traveling by air.[citation needed] He currently resides in Lahore.
