Mumbai: Actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra on Saturday called Sonu Sood a superhero and praised her efforts in arranging hassle-free transport and food for migrant labourers and reaching their places of origin.
Shetty thanked the 46-year-old star on Instagram for his tireless efforts to help the migrants.
She thanked the actor in the post that featured a picture of Sood waving at the labourers seated in buses and wrote, “A superhero has been working tirelessly from the frontlines to ensure our fellow citizens in need reach their homes safely. This is a beautiful, humbling, & selfless gesture that has eased thousands of lives at a time when there’s so much pain & suffering.”
“The example you’ve set speaks volumes of the kind of person you are & will be remembered by generations to come. So proud of you, Sonu!,” she added.
Sonu Sood is being promoted throughout the media for a hassle-free system of migrant labourers in their homes. Pictures of Sood waving to laborers sitting in buses have been winning hearts on the Internet since early May.
During the COVID-19-inspired lockout, thousands of migrant labourers are stranded in urban areas with no livelihood and very few who make their way to their native places.
Earlier this month, the central government organised safe travel of these migrant labourers to their native places through Shramik special trains.
