He made his Bollywood debut in a romantic drama opposite not one but three leading ladies Kangana Ranaut, Neeru Bajwa and Sagarika Ghatge. However, the film failed at the box office, thereby ending his Bollywood career.
Subsequently, he turned to politics and contested the 2014 elections as LJP candidate. He won the seat by defeating the nearest rival Sudhansu Shekhar Bhaskar of Rashtriya Janata Dal by over 85,000 votes.
