Out of these films except Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, most of them went unnoticed. But he bounced back with Khushi in 2003 for which his performance was appreciated although the film flopped. He reunited with Ram Gopal Varma in Bhoot in 2003, which was another hit. After Jaanasheen, again he proved his worth and gave a critically acclaimed performance in 'Dev' in the year 2004 where he starred with Amitabh Bachchan
