In the midst of the second wave of COVID-19, as people around the world are scrambling to locate hospital beds, oxygen tanks, and suitable and adequate medicine, Sonu Sood is once again completely prepared to provide assistance and support in a variety of ways to our country’s residents. Though he assisted stranded migrant workers across India last year during the lockdown, this time he has vowed to provide food to the people of Neemuch, Madhya Pradesh, among other items.

This is how the idea came up: Sonu was recently a celebrity judge on the dance reality show Dance Deewane, and he was profoundly moved when one of the contestants, Uday Singh, a regular wager, opened up about how the current situation has made it difficult for people in his hometown of Neemuch, MP, to make ends meet. Since hearing about his ordeal, the star vowed to ration food to all those in need before the lockout is lifted.

The star, who recently wrapped a period picture, is spending the majority of the day assisting those in need, leaving no opportunity for a phone call. “I’m going to be up until 4 a.m. figuring stuff out,” he said quickly as he signed off. As we chat, there are people in need of oxygen in Delhi, Haryana, and Chandigarh, so I’m reaching out to various parts of the world for assistance.”
