What only made the video seem authentic was the fact that actress and television personality Dolly Bindra had shared the video on her social media profile. Aamir Khan’s Ghulam Co-Star Javed Hyder Is Earning His Livelihood Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic by Selling Vegetables?

In fact, in a conversation with Mirror Online, Javed confirmed that he was not selling veggies on the streets. “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,” Javed told the portal. Taapsee Pannu Complains About High Electricity Bill in June; Electricity Provider Responds.

Squashing all rumours of his financial stability, Javed further added, “By God’s grace, I have enough to lead a normal life even if work doesn’t resume for the next couple of months. And even if I have to sell vegetables for a living in future I have no qualms in doing it as that is also a normal job just like acting or anything else.”

Javed also went on to reveal that he had even commented under Dolly Bindra’s post and clarified that it was simply a motivational TikTok. “Dolly Bindra ji had shared the video on her social media handle stating that I’m selling vegetables now and I had even commented that it was only an act and nothing more, but I think people didn’t notice it and the video went viral overnight,” concluded Javed Hyder.
