BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: When Sonu Sood played the villain in Salman Khan’s blockbuster film Dabangg, audiences believed that there could be no person more sinister than him. The reality is a far cry from the diabolical character of Chhedi Singh that he portrayed.
Sonu has left no stone unturned in helping out in such difficult times due to the coronavirus pandemic. He opened his hotel in Juhu, Mumbai, for health care workers to live in till the pandemic abates while taking up a philanthropic effort of feeding 45,000 people daily under a scheme called Shakti Annadanam.
Now, he has pledged to provide free meals to 25,000 migrant workers during Ramzan including those who have come from states like Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal.
“Times are so difficult today that it’s very important for each one of us to stand for each other. Through this initiative, I would be helping all those who would be fasting during this period and we would provide special meal kits so they don’t stay hungry after fasting all day,” Sonu said, reports IANS.
He has also penned a poem on seeing the suffering. He tweeted, “Thinking about the difficult times, we’ve been living in, I decided to pen a few lines dedicated to the real heroes of the nation who have been fighting relentlessly day & night for us! Watch the tribute here”.
