“Should I tell you one thing, I am blind from my right eye. I see only from my left eye. The one you see is someone else’s eye which was donated to me after his death. If I close my left eye, I can see no one,” he told the contestant, leaving everyone stunned on the show.

The shocking announcement left all his fans shock and made everyone admire his determination and hard-work even more. Social media out-poured love, admiration and respect for the star soon after the airing of the show.

His acting prowess garnered him immense attention after the first installment of the epic-sage, which only went several notches above after the grand reception of the sequel.
