Man with a golden heart’ Sonu Sood has become a symbol of humanity through his act of kindness. The actor left no hold barred for helping migrant workers who are stuck in the city due to the nationwide lockdown for reaching their hometowns. From arranging buses to launching a helpline toll-free number, the ‘Simmba’ actor went a mile extra for doing the best possible for migrant workers.
In an exclusive interview with Bombay Times, Sonu told that he’s completely aware of the problems and struggles of migrant workers as it reminded him of his early days in the city. But this is not all, as after helping migrant workers in Mumbai, Sonu has airlifted 177 girls who were stuck in Ernakulam, Kerala due to nationwide lockdown. These girls are workers doing stitching and embroidery work at a local factory and had nowhere to go soon after the factory was closed down due to COVID-19.
A native source of Sonu told us, ” When the information about the situation came to Sonu from his close pal in Bhubaneswar, the b-town star decided to help the girls. He initiated the process by taking permission from the government to make Kochi and Bhubaneswar airport operational. A special aircraft has been called from Bangalore to airlift these girls from Kochi and taken to Bhubaneswar so they can meet their families. The duration from Bhubaneswar to their village is going to be 2 hours and soon after finishing their journey, the girls will be heading back home.”
