The actor was overwhelmed to see such a great response from the people after he started his plea on social media. For the unversed, Sonu had earlier shared a video on Instagram where he shared his concerns for the children who have lost both their parents amid these uncertain times and are facing the brunt of the pandemic which is affecting their career. Therefore, he had requested the government to make education completely free for such students so that they can have a bright future. Now seeing the university, taking a ‘revolutionary’ step forward, the actor shared his happiness and wrote, “This is a revolutionary step by @CT_University. I invite the rest of the universities, schools, and colleges to come forward in support of students who lost their parents in this pandemic. Together we can set an example and save many families. Join this mission with @SoodFoundation.” 

Previously, in a video, Sonu Sood said that a lot of people have lost their loved ones to the novel coronavirus pandemic, many of whom are young children who have lost their parents. He said, “Children, as young as 8, 10, and 12 years old, have lost a parent and in some cases, both the parents. I wonder what will happen to their future." So, he appealed to the government and those organisations that can secure their future and provide free education to them.
