Speaking about the same to Pune Mirror, the actor said, "I didn't want the lockdown to affect me or my talent. The need for money forced me to do whatever best I could. So I decided to fuse my acting skills and sell vegetables around the city. I also saw huge crowds gathering in markets to buy essentials which was a threat for everyone and an easy chance for the virus to spread. Taking this into consideration, I decided to go door-to-door and sell vegetables so that people don't step outside."

He added, "Earning money to feed the stomach and spreading smiles in the world with my talent is why I took it up. There's no shame."
