On Thursday, actor Sonu Sood shared a video on his Twitter handle of people being gathered outside his Mumbai apartment complex by saying that the day the crowd disperses will indicate the end of people’s ‘miseries’. Many people have been gathering outside his apartment looking for help during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The actor captioned the video as “The day this crowd disappears, I will feel the miseries have ended. Let’s make this happen soon, together”. In the video, it shows Sonu meeting a number of people including an elderly lady and a disabled man. The women gives Sonu her blessings and told in Hindi that “What you’ve done, no one else could have”.
Since last year’s lockdown, the actor has been helping those in need by arranging transportation for the migrant workers to reach back to their home states. He has also been helping during the second wave of corona by providing medical assistance and other resources. One of his tweets read that he felt more satisfying in facilitating timely medical care than releasing a film that reaches over Rs 100 crore at the box office.
While on the other hand, Sonu Sood was also accused of being duplicitous. He replied to those who said he is a fraud in an interview with Barkha Dutt’s Mojo Story last year. He told that “For those who claim that I am not doing anything, my reply is that I have a database of 7,03,246 people whom I have helped and whose addresses, phone numbers, Aadhar card numbers I have. All the students whom I have helped to come from abroad, I have all their details. I don’t want to clarify but I have the data. Instead of trolling me, go out and help someone”.
The day this crowd disappears,
I will feel the miseries have ended.
Let's make this happen soon, together. https://t.co/IBpvqhCUya
