On the standstill and gradual downfall of his career after Ramayan, he says,
I had started my career as a Hindi film hero and post-Ramayan, once I wanted to return to Bollywood, the producers said, ‘Your image as Ram is so strong, we cannot cast you as anyone else or offer you a supporting role.’ They felt that i used to be not fitted to commercial movies anymore. That became the most important minus point of my career, and that i realised that I could never return to showbiz the way I wanted to. I took up a couple of TV shows, but whenever I did something, people rejected me saying, ‘Arre, Ramji kya kar rahe hain.”
