Towards the end of March 2020, a nationwide lockdown was announced in India. This is the first time something like this has happened and overnight everything changed. With regular services interrupted, many were unemployed and looking for ways to reach their hometowns. Actor Sonu Sood stood up and decided to help the migrants return home. However, he didn’t stop there and put together a team to help as many people as possible on various issues. His philanthropic work is known to all today. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Sonu Sood spoke about the resistance he encountered on his journey and how he overcame it.
Speaking of the advice he received from a filmmaker before starting his journey, Sonu said: “When I took my first step, my director, Dr Chandra Prakash Dwivedi with whom I do Prithviraj, told me that “in this journey you have taken you will meet many people who will comment on it and even try to pull you down, but you shouldn’t stop.” Many people stop doing good when others say bad things to them. So he told me not to stop and to continue and that one day I will get closer to the purpose for which I had started the journey.
Instead of facing negativity, he believed in transparency and invited opponents to join him. “I remember when some people pointed the finger at me, I invited them to be part of my team, because you have to know how this world works. Then they joined the team and even today they are ashamed to point the finger at me and when they work with the team they realize how many lives they touch, ”said the actor.
“I remember when I started sending migrants home, I thought that after sending them home, our job was done. But then I realized that these are the same people who are going to turn around and ask, “when we get our job” and “who will help us with medical issues and who will pay for our child’s education.” So all of these questions were raised one by one and I partnered with them and we started to change lives and continue to do so. Today, thousands of people are undergoing surgery, the education of thousands of people has been taken care of and lakhs are finding jobs. So I’m happy to be part of this chain, ”he added, speaking of his trip.
