Here's a Bollywood villain who is a real-life hero. Amid nationwide lockdown, actor Sonu Sood has been relentlessly working hard and arranging buses for migrants in Mumbai to reach their homes in other parts of the country.

The actor has been hailed by one and all, including Union Minister Smriti Irani, for this goodwill gesture.

In an exclusive conversation with Zee News recently, Sonu revealed that he plans to do the work until he is able to send all the migrants to their homes and it gives him immense satisfaction to see these people reunite with their families.

“I will be on the roads until all the workers reach home. I am not concerned about the hard work it takes, I am determined to send them to their families. My phone rings constantly, my social media accounts are flooded with messages. I try to reach out to everyone possible,” said the 46-year-old actor.

The actor has been responding to several messages on Twitter assuring many that they will get to go home.

When asked what made him take up this good cause, the actor stated that the migrant labourers form an important part of our society and they need help at this hour of crisis.

“It was difficult initially to arrange everything, but I was determined to do so. I coordinated for their travels, took permissions from different states,” Sonu added.

Sonu admitted that the paperwork process of the migrants was time-consuming and required much labour.

“I took the responsibility of sending them homes as I didn’t want any of the children to remember this difficult situation in their life anytime,” Sonu said.

Not only has the actor been arranging for transport but earlier in April, he offered his hotel in Mumbai for healthcare workers. He has also distributed food among the underprivileged during Ramzan.
