Sonu Sood is now known to be a kind and helpful soul. He has helped more people than we can count in this tough and trying lockdown. He has tried his best to help the people in need.
When asked, he said “Of course, every human life matters. And if I had my way, I wouldn’t allow a single life to be lost. Having said that, I do belong first and foremost to the film fraternity. And it causes me a lot of pain to see so many daily-wage earners from our industry suffering and jobless. We are doing our best for them. COVID-19 has claimed the livelihoods of so many, and our industry wasn’t spared either.”
He also expressed how he felt about the lockdown getting lifted, “[I’m] so happy that the shooting is resuming. But let’s not get carried away. Let’s stick to the guidelines that will be put out. The number of people on the set should not exceed the Covid guideline and I think we should avoid intimate scenes, at least for now.”
Sonu then went on to request the availability of emergency funds for medical needs. He said, “There should be a fund for medical emergencies and for those workers who retire, prematurely or otherwise. Who would have imagined that a catastrophe like COVID-19 would fall on us so suddenly? We should learn a lesson from this experience. There should always be some funds laid aside for such emergencies.”
