Bharti had lost almost 85-90 per cent of her lungs due to a deadly virus. After reaching out for help to the actor, he immediately arranged medical aid and got her shifted to Wockhardt hospital, Nagpur for her treatment. The doctors had said that she needed a lung transplant or some special treatment which was only possible in Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad. Sonu then got in touch with the doctors at Apollo Hospitals and came to know that there is a special treatment called ECMO in which artificial pumping of blood happens to the body so as to take the pressure away from the lungs. Since the entire setup for the treatment was available in Hyderabad, the actor had managed things and got her airlifted for the treatment.
Meanwhile, apart from Bharti, the actor also got another critically ill patient airlifted from Jhansi to Hyderabad in the same hospital. Sonu Sood who has been helping several needy people amid the ongoing pandemic with healthcare facilities, employment, and more, is set to launch his own 'Oxygen Drive' to save more loves. He shared the news ON Instagram and wrote, “OXYGEN DRIVE” on the way, let’s do this together! #o2.”
