Bollywood actor Sonu Sood is earning praises for his work amid the coronavirus pandemic. After arranging spaces for health care workers in his hotels in Mumbai, Sood now has arranged transport for many migrant workers to go home.

On Monday, the actor arranged 10 buses which took workers from Mumbai to their homes in Karnataka amid nationwide lockdown imposed to curb the spread of the deadly virus.

The buses left from Thane, Maharashtra on Monday for Gulbarga, Karnataka. The actor said in a statement that in times of a pandemic, everyone deserved to be with their families.

“I strongly believe that in the current time when we are all facing this global health calamity, every Indian deserves to be with their families and dear ones. I have taken official permissions from the Maharashtra and Karnataka governments to help these migrants reach home in about ten buses."

The Maharashtra government officials were very helpful in terms of organising the paperwork and a special mention to the Karnataka government for welcoming the migrants back home. It was really moving for me to watch these migrants walking on roads, including the little kids and old parents. I shall continue doing the same for other states as well to the best of my abilities,” read the statement.

Not just that, the actor has also donated 1,500 PPE kits to doctors in Punjab. He has also been feeding thousands of underprivileged people along with providing meal kits to migrants in the Bhiwandi area of Mumbai during the holy month of Ramzan.
