In Andaz Apna Apna, he played Anand Akela, one of Raveena Tandon’s many suitors who withdraws from the field to assist Amar and Prem, played by Aamir and Salman Khan. He was cast as Ram Singh in Lagaan, where he had a glorious moment of screen rebellion in which he quit the service of his British masters as the climactic cricket match was played.
