Bollywood actor Sonu Sood plays good Samaritan once again
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who is known for helping people in distress, has once again raised to the occasion and is helping many Indians, especially Indian students stuck in war-affected Ukraine, where his foundation is working to bring back stranded Indian students safely to India.
Sood’s work during the COVID pandemic, especially when the nationwide lockdown was imposed during the first COVID wave, earned laurels and won many Indian hearts. He assisted many people, and his deed was applauded by all. Since then, he has been involved in numerous humanitarian efforts.
Many Indian students took to Twitter to share videos of themselves getting help from the Sonu’s Charity Foundation. The actor is helping them reach their home safely. They posted videos thanking him for helping them in their time of distress.
A student, Kavita Arora, said that Sonu’s team helped her and many other students reach Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Another student, Laxman, thanked Sonu for his help. He asked him to continue the good work. In the video shared on Twitter, the student said, "It was Sonu’s team who gave us hope when we all lost hope." He also thanked the Indian government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for arranging flights for them to fly back to India.
According to Sonu Sood, who spoke to an Indian media outlet about the evacuation plan, local taxis were called to the students' location, from where they were brought to Kharkiv's railway station. They were transported by train to a safer location in Lviv, where buses were already arranged to transfer them to the Polish border. We also pay for students' flight travel if they are unable to afford it. Dozens of them have already returned to India. "
Sonu Sood wrote on his Twitter account, "Tough times for our students in Ukraine and probably my toughest assignment to date." Fortunately, we managed to help many students cross the border to safe territory. Let’s keep trying. They need us. Thank you, @eoiromania, @IndiaInPoland, and @meaindia, for your prompt help. Jai Hind "
