Page becomes unresponsive after force downloading excel file from browser

I'm triggering an action exportToExcel() of a controller on click of a button where it reads List of data (listItems) from a web service and writes those data in excel format (poi jar) and makes the file as an attachment so that it prompts open/save from browser side. Problem is that after doing all this, the prompt comes and file downloads, but the page hangs and doesn't responds:

   void exportToExcel() {
        String file = params.exportFileName + ".xls"
        DateFormat df = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd-hh-mm-ss") // add S if you need milliseconds
        String filename = file.split("\\.")[0] + df.format(new Date()) + "." + file.split("\\.")[1]
        ExportUtilityToXls util = new ExportUtilityToXls()
          HSSFWorkbook wb = util.writeExcelSheet(listItems)
        ByteArrayOutputStream outByteStream = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        byte[] outArray = outByteStream.toByteArray()
        response.setHeader("Expires:", "0"); // eliminates browser caching
        response.setHeader("Content-disposition", "attachment;filename=\"${filename}\"")
        OutputStream outStream = response.getOutputStream()

Do I have to make changes in JS to redirect to the current page, but where? In the framework level JS this action is getting invoked by:
