During the pandemic, Sonu Sood rose from his role as an actor and became a ‘messiah’ for thousands of poor people. He arranged buses for migrant workers to go back home, flights for students stuck elsewhere, hospital beds and oxygen cylinders for the needy, and so much more. Despite his exceptional work, he was accused of pulling off nothing but a ‘PR stunt’, called a ‘fraud‘, and his house was raided for alleged tax evasion.

Which is why, when the Padma Awards 2020 took place a few days back, several people online asked why Sonu Sood wasn’t conferred with an award. Many also asked why actor Kangana Ranaut was considered more deserving of the award, since her Twitter account was suspended for ‘hate speech’. It is to be noted that Kangana received the prestigious award for her contribution to the field of performing arts.

Padma Shri received for Tweeting bullshit & nonsense against minorities.
Sonu Sood deserves every bit of this award rather than this Immature woman. https://t.co/qFNM6sMFb5

The rightful deserving of the Padma-Shri award is none other than our real-life most loved one @SonuSood, but don't know why
he was excluded !
Hon Resp @rashtrapatibhvn @PMOIndia
Can not we expect Padma-Shri to a genuine deserving.
This is how disappointment begins. #sonusood

@rashtrapatibhvn One question I have of the President is why sonu sood was not given padma shri, whereas sonu sood had helped the labourer of our country much in the time of corona.

Padma Shri is not for Sonu Sood but it is for Kangana, honoring the person who served people day and night would have been the pride of our country, by giving Padma Shri to Kangna, our government has told that everything is sold nowadays. tell me you want to buy,

Do you think Sonu Sood is more deserving of the Padma Shri than Kangana Ranaut? Tell us.
