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.
