Umed claimed that he knew and inspired the band, Cornershop, giving them the incentive for the name as he has a history of running Indian corner stores. He also commented about the fact that their hit song, 'Brimful of Asha', was about Bollywood singer, Asha Bhosle.
In October, he admitted to Dev that the reason he was over in the UK was because he got into gambling problems at home. Even though Dev said that he could stay as long as he wanted, Umed decided it was best to return to India. He said goodbye to Dev, and told him that he was his favourite nephew.
