After finding out that the video went viral, Javed told Mumbai Mirror that he had no idea the video would be misunderstood. "No, I am not a vegetable vendor. I am an actor by profession even now. The entire selling vegetable video was just an act and I had made that TikTok only to motivate my followers that one should not give up when times are tough and that no work is small or big. I had no idea that it would go out with this message."
