Still not sure on why payment data not showing on email but i fixed it to make it work in a different way. In email template i updated {{var payment_html}} to {{block type='core/template' area='frontend' template='email/order/pm.phtml' order=$order}}. Created new file pm.phtml in email/order folder:

      $_order = $this->getOrder(); 
     if($_order) {
      $storeId = $_order->getStore()->getId();
      if($_order->getPayment()->getMethodInstance()->getCode() == 'cashondelivery') 
          echo 'Some Text Message';      
      } else {
          $paymentBlock = Mage::helper('payment')->getInfoBlock($_order->getPayment())
          $paymentBlockHtml = $paymentBlock->toHtml();
          echo $paymentBlockHtml;
