Actor Sonu Sood has been honoured with the Doctorate Degree of Taekwondo. The 45-year-old actor, who is known for leading a healthy lifestyle over the years, was felicitated with honour for his outstanding contribution and support towards taekwondo.
He was honoured in the presence of Prabhat Sharma, secretary general of Taekwondo Federation of India at the opening ceremony of 107 International Kyorugi Referee Seminar/121st International Kyorugi Referee Refresher Course and 40th International Poomsae Referee Seminar.
“It feels good to see everybody so fit out here, all thanks to the event organisers who have managed to get the taekwondo experts all over the country on the same platform and created the Taekwondo Federation,” Sonu said in a statement.
“It’s great to know that people across all age groups are interested in taekwondo sport and they want to create awareness regarding the same and inspire others. Felicitating these experts would certainly inspire them and others to take up the sport as also a fitness initiative. I really hope such good fitness initiatives inspire the people and help us make a healthy India,” he added.
On the work front, Sonu will be next seen in Rohit Shetty’s 'Simmba', alongside Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan. The movie is slated to release in December. The actor had recently also made headlines for walking out of 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi'. Initially, it was reported the actor had walked out as the Kangana Ranaut had taken over as the director of the film. Few scenes of the film had to be reshot and some other patchwork was also required. For this, Kangana Ranaut took over as the director as the original director of the film, Krish got engaged with some other project.
However, later Sonu Sood clarified that he walked out of teh film, not because of a female director, but because of Kangana Ranaut's incompetence.
