Sonu Sood Arranges 10 Buses & Meal Kits To Send Mumbai’s Stranded Migrants Home To Karnataka

Staying confined at home for such a long time can be difficult. But imagine being thousands of km away from home during these testing times. With no roof over their head and a lack of income, several migrants workers are facing hardships while staying in different cities.

In a bid to help migrant workers stuck in Maharashtra, actor Sonu Sood made travel arrangements for them amid the nationwide lockdown. He arranged 10 buses for the hundreds of migrants stuck in the city due to the pandemic, reports Times of India. The actor not only sponsored the travel but also provided meal kits for the workers.

Firstly, the actor got all the permission required from the Karnataka and Maharashtra governments. He then made travel and food arrangements to accommodate all the migrants. A total of ten buses left from Thane for a small town called Gulbarga in Karnataka, reports Hindustan Times.

The actor said that during the current global crisis, โ€œevery Indian deserves to be with their families and dear ones.โ€ He also thanked the government officials for all their help in sending the migrants back home.

โ€œIt 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,โ€ Sonu said. The actor also said that he will try to help migrant workers from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha, and Jharkhand to get to their native places as well.

Several people applauded the actor’s kind gesture amid the pandemic:ย 

Earlier, Sonu had offered his hotel in Mumbai as a residential facility to healthcare workers and provided PPE kits for doctors as well. Despite playing the role of a villain in several movies, the actor surely is a hero in real life!
