In an interview, Rohan said that while he had differences with Swami Om on the show, he let bygones be bygones. It was because of an incident involving Rohan and Bani J that Swami Om was evicted from the Bigg Boss house, by host Salman Khan himself.

He told The Times of India, “After Bigg Boss, I never met him or spoke to him. It's unfortunate that he left the world and now I will pray for him so that his soul rests in peace." Rohan added, "Even though I had clashes with him in the house, I had left those feelings there only. I spent two-three months with him in the house, and I feel really bad about his death."

Rohan said that he owes his popular nickname - Prince of India - to Swami Om. He said that he remembers the love he got from audiences, because of the name that Swami Om had coined for him.

Swami Om had reportedly contracted the novel coronavirus three months ago, and despite testing negative, hadn't fully recovered. His friend Mukesh Jain's son confirmed to Zee Media that he died due to paralysis.
