Actor-philanthropist Sonu Sood has been a messiah for the masses amid the COVID lockdown as he continues his relentless efforts in assisting distressed migrants and students across the country. The actor has made available travel, education, medical and other facilities to thousands of people since the outbreak of the pandemic in India. It is no doubt that his fans have been conveying heartfelt gratitude and blessings on social media every day since then. People have even started worshipping him.
One user on Twitter recently posted a photo where he kept a portrait of Sonu Sood at the temple corner in his house. He captioned the post with a special request as he tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The fan wrote in Hindi, "Respected Prime Minister, It is our wish as Indians that- the way amid COVID crisis, Sonu Sood has extended support to the poor, migrants, students and every person in need - for the true hero of the country, we ask you to honour him with the Bharat Ratna Award."
An overwhelmed Sonu Sood responded to this wish from his fan with a respectfully folded hands emoji as a mark of humility. This is not the first time that fans and followers of the actor have demanded the Bharat Ratna - the highest civilian honour for a citizen of India in recognition of exceptional service.
Sonu Sood has in numerous cases also provided financial assistance to the ones in desperate need in instances such as medical emergencies as well as for educating the poor. The actor has offered to pay school fees or buy preparatory materials for students on various occasions in the last few months. The Dabangg actor recently shared a series of tweets while expressing his concerns over schools stopping online classes of students for not paying the fees on time. The actor spoke about students who were deprived of education because of their poor financial conditions.
If a student is stopped from his right to study bec of the poor financial condition of his parent then imagine the state of mind of these parents.Request these financial institutions to bifurcate the dues to be paid in coming months, this will give them time & kids won’t suffer.— sonu sood (@SonuSood) October 4, 2020
At the same time, the parents of these kids should also support their school & teachers as it’s a challenging time for them too. Just..buy time.— sonu sood (@SonuSood) October 4, 2020
Moral of the story is no kid should be stopped from their class bec of the inability of a parent to pay the fees.
Together we CAN 🙏
If banks can give moratorium extensions for EMIs,I am sure educational institutions can give that to students too. Kindly don’t stop them from online classes & exams. It’s heartbreaking for parents to see their kids suffer. Give them few months to bounce back. Save their future🙏— sonu sood (@SonuSood) October 4, 2020
