    He further added, "His mental condition started getting affected, after films like Devdas, etc. So much so that Dilip Saab had to be taken to a psychiatrist who then advised him to stop working in tragedy genre films and work in films with lighter content."

    The actor obviously took the doctor's advice seriously and began working in films with lighter content. That is how his films like Ram aur Shyam came to be about.
