"Who's worried about their future, guys?"."I'm worried about my future".

I understand that the gender-neutral pronoun is correct in this sentence. But what if two friends are talking, one of them says "Hey, Mike is worried about his future", and I just didn't understand the man's name. Could I ask "Who's worried about HIS future?" in a case like this?

No, but you could ask "Who's worried about his future?"
