A number of reports had stated that Dinesh suffered a cardiac arrest. However, Dayanand clarified to Pinkvilla that the actor was suffering from liver damage, not heart attack. He told the publication, "First, it wasn't a heart attack. It was liver damage, because of which he was rushed to Tunga hospital. Dinesh was getting treated for some other ailment, but the medication affected his liver adversely. That's why it is always recommended to take medicines very carefully. You never know when the medicine that one is taking to treat something can cause another major ailment."

Apart from CID, Dinesh was seen in the hit show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. He also played cameos in films such as Sarfarosh and Super 30.
