However, Javed has now clarified in an interview that he was not selling vegetables on the cart to make a living but was simply making videos to motivate people and make them understand that 'no job is small'.

About the videos that went viral on social media and showed him selling vegetables, Javed told a website, "I am not selling vegetables. I am an actor by profession and currently because of lockdown, I am not doing anything. As an actor to keep myself busy and occupied I started making musical videos on an App. My daughter was using that App and she encouraged me to make some videos."

He added, "Today, with God's grace I don't have any monetary issues, but if at all it happens in future I won't shy from selling vegetables as no job is small."

Javed has worked in films like Baabarr, Ghulam and TV soap Jeannie Aur Juju. In 2017, he featured in Hindi drama film Life Ki Aisi Ki Taisi.
