Actor Sonu Sood’s Twitter handle has been flooded with requests from ‘Migrant Workers’ to reach home. He continues to direct his efforts towards relieving the plight of migrant workers and students who are stuck in the different parts of the country.
The coronavirus scare has shocked the entire nation as workers continue to hike towards their native homes amid the nationwide lockdown.
Amid all the issues, the 46-year-old has rushed into the scene and worked relentlessly to help the workers reach home. From arranging buses and providing food for the needy, Sood has done it all.
Now, a Pinkvilla report suggests that the actor has funded another chartered flight to help fly over 170 migrant workers to Dehradun in Uttarakhand from the city, in an aircraft operated by budget airline AirAsia India. The plane with 173 migrants onboard left from Mumbai at around 1.57 pm, and landed in Dehradun at 4.41 pm.
During an interview, Sonu expressed a sense of happiness that his efforts to help migrant workers stranded in various parts of the country have only grown stronger. “Most of them have never had the opportunity to experience air travel, and the smiles on their faces brings me a lot of joy as they take this AirAsia India flight to reach home to their families and friends,” said Sood.
Not just this, since the number of Coronavirus cases is on a surge, and hordes of migrant workers are waiting to get back home, Sonu Sood said that he would be arranging more such flights in the future.
Sood continues to risk his own and his family’s health, and steps out daily so that work runs smoothly. After Union minister Smriti Irani and cricketer Shikhar Dhawan, Ajay Devgn has taken to social media to hail the talented actor's work.
