Sonu Sood rose to the headlines last year when he took it upon himself to arrange transportation of stranded migrants during the nationwide lockdown. In September 2020, the ‘Dabbang’ actor was awarded the prestigious SDG Special Humanitarian Action Award by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), for his efforts to help Indian migrants.
Last year, he had also launched a website called ‘Pravasi Rojgar’ to help migrant workers find employment amid the pandemic. Most recently, he launched a healthcare initiative ‘Ilaaj India’ on February 19, to provide medical assistance to needy patients.
