Amit had previously appeared in Hindi films such as Pankh and Aalap. The reason for his untimely death is not known.

Amit played actor Aditi Rao Hydari’s ex-boyfriend in Sammohanam. The film’s story revolved around an unlikely romance between a fan and an actor.

Writing about it, the Hindustan Times review said: “The film unfolds as a sweet love story of a man who has preconceived notions but still falls in love with a woman who wants to make it big in that profession. The misunderstandings are mellowed down, the romance is adorable and the shift in visuals every time Aditi comes on screen signifies her status as the star.”
