He grew to become a nationwide crush with the 1995 music video Made In India, following which he featured in a number of ads – a number of controversial ones too. But it appears motion pictures had been by no means his calling, perhaps which is why he left Mansoor Khan’s Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander after capturing for a serious portion of it.

I told him that ‘Sir, aapko koi kaise mana kar sakta hai’. He was a legend. We had grown up watching his films. Then, we started shooting,” Deepak had stated.
