Maharashtra's Water Resources Minister and NCP leader Jayant Patil, and Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao on Saturday praised Bollywood actor Sonu Sood for arranging buses for migrant workers desirous of returning to their homes. Rao shared a fan artwork of Sonu Sood as a superhero who is pushing a bus full of travellers in the illustration and wrote, "Agar Hero Banna hai to Sonu Sir jaisa bano"[Translation: If you want to become a hero, be like Sonu Sood].

Noting that Sood has played a villain in some of his films, the water resources minister termed the actor as an "inspiring hero" in reality. "Sonu Sood is arranging buses for migrants who want to go back to their homes. He is trying to help as many migrants as he can. The on screen villain is an inspiring hero in reality! God bless him @SonuSood," tweeted Patil, who heads the state NCP unit.

He also shared a picture of Sood standing near the buses reportedly arranged by him to ferry migrant workers.
