They say not all heroes wear capes and many such heroes have come out to help amid one of the worst crisis for human beings, COVID-19. Many citizens have been doing their bit and donating to the relief funds to help the affected during the pandemic. Some have also provided immediate relief to all those facing difficulties due to the lockdown.
One of them has been Sonu Sood, who has extended his support to various causes during the crisis, be it offering his hotel for medical workers or providing food to those observing Ramzan fast. The actor’s recent initiative is making headlines and earning his praises not just from celebrities of the film industry but also those from sport and other fraternities.
Amid the issue of migrant workers being stranded in various parts of the country due to the lockdown, the Dabangg star arranged buses to help the migrants travel to their hometowns. As many as 350 migrants from Maharashtra headed back to Karnataka in 10 buses, after Sonu obtained all the required permissions from the state governments.
Pictures of the videos during the departure of the buses from Thane to Gulbarga went viral. The migrants are seen waving and shouting delightedly at Sonu while leaving.
Graphics terming Sonu as ‘real life hero’ and ‘majduro ka maseeha’ (saviour of the migrants) also started doing the rounds.
