Bollywood actor, Sonu Sood, who has been tirelessly working to help migrant workers, has turned 47 today. And on his special day, the actor has planned to organise medical camps, which he expect to get attendance of 50,000 people. Talking to HT, the birthday boy said, “I have been planning this for quite some time, and been speaking to a lot of doctors already in Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Punjab and Orissa. But now, floods have hit Assam and Bihar, so we are trying how to hold them there. They can’t be regular camps where thousands of people used to come. It will be free of cost.”
The actor said that it will be conducted by following COVID-19 guidelines and said, “We have been facing challenges, as there has to be social distancing. If we announce just like that, 5000-6000 people will come together, we can’t have that. We are getting ready for 40-50,000 people across India, so we have been in touch with gram panchayats, mukhiyas so there is a time these people can come and get their check-ups done.”
While the actor will be super-busy on his birthday, when asked that whether him family complains about giving time to them, to which he replied, “They understand and know that I am trying to help people. I spoke to my son and asked ‘beta, are you not happy that I am not spending time with you?’ He said ‘nahi daddy, logon ko help karna zaroori hai’. That gives you more power, that you are doing something right. I feel sorry about it, but at least I am being able to bring some change in the lives of these people.”
On the work front, Sonu Sood will be next seen in Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt and Manushi Chillar starrer Prithviraj, which is based on the life of Prithviraj Chauhan.
