The actor Sonu Sood has got into a controversy after his car was seized by the police while polling was underway for the Punjab assembly elections on Sunday. The actor’s sister Malvika Sood is standing up for elections from Moga as a Congress candidate. Sharing an update on the exact news, Moga District PRO Pradbhdeep Singh said to ANI, “Sonu Sood was trying to enter a polling booth. During this, his car was confiscated and he was sent home. Action will be taken against him if he steps out of his house.”
Reportedly, threat calls at various booths by the opposition, especially the people of Akali Dal are being made.
Acknowledging the controversy, Sonu clarified that he was only trying to ensure fair elections. “We got to know of threat calls at various booths by the opposition, especially the people of Akali Dal. Money is being distributed at some booths. So it’s our duty to go check & ensure fair elections. That’s why we had gone out. Now, we’re at home. There should be fair polls,” Sonu Sood confessed to ANI.

While Sonu’s sister is contesting for politics, the actor had retained that he will stay away from this. He had told the news portal, “I feel proud that she took the plunge. She has been living there for the past couple of years and knows the issues that matter to people. I am glad she will be able to be in touch with people and help them directly. It is her journey, and I have nothing to do with politics. I will keep doing the work that I have been doing. I won’t be campaigning for her in the elections because I want her to work hard and do her bit. As far as I am concerned, I will always stay away from politics or any political affiliations.”
