Call him a “Knight in Shining Armour” or “The Saviour of all“, Actor Sonu Sood has definitely become the star of every Indian’s eye owing to his selfless work and help towards the need in this pandemic. Sood, who has been working tirelessly to help migrant workers return to their homes amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown, on Thursday apologized to those whose messages he missed. He also revealed the number of ‘help’ messages he receives daily from the distressed on various social media platforms.
“1137 mails. 19000 FB messages. 4812 Insta messages. 6741 twitter messages. Today’s HELP messages. On average, these are the number of requests I get for HELP. It is humanly impossible to reach out to everyone. I still try my best. Apologies if I missed your message,”
Have a look at his tweet here:
In the past few months, Sonu Sood has helped thousands of daily wage workers return to their home states. Apart from arranging buses and trains for their travel, he also provided financial support to the unemployed migrants.
The “Dabangg” actor was recently the guest on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show‘, where he revealed how he came up with the idea of helping migrants.
The actor said,
“I was distributing food with a friend and happened to talk to a family which was travelling on foot with their children. That is when I requested them to stay back for two days and promised them that I would arrange for all the necessary permissions and make sure they reach home safely. So, that is how all of it began.”
The actor, besides doing social work, also has a flair for writing. His debut book, which remains untitled, will hit the bookshelves under the aegis of Ebury Publishing and Vintage Publishing, Penguin Random House and will document his rescue missions.
An actor, social worker, philanthropist, author, and a full-time messiah, Sood has done what the people in power failed to do – help those in crisis. Needless to say, all of us need and deserve a ‘Sonu Sood‘ in our lives.
Wishing more power to him!
