Notable later roles include those in Achanuk (1973), Shankar Shambhu (1976), Amar Ahkbar Anthony (1977), Two Shades of Blood (1979), The Burning Train (1980), Insaan (1982), Dayavan (1988), Eena Meeka Deeka (1994), Dhaal: The Battle of Law Against Law (1997), Leela (2002), Risk (2007), Players (2012) and Downtown (2016), his last.
