With the ongoing pandemic and lockdown, our Bollywood celebrities are doing their bit towards society through contributions, providing food and essentials and spreading awareness.
Amid all this, actor Sonu Sood has arranged buses for hundreds of migrants stuck in the city amid the nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After his team charted out all the formalities, the actor had 10 buses to accommodate 350 people who belonged to a small town called Gulbarga in Karnataka.

Sonu Sood said he believes that in the current global crisis, “every Indian deserves to be with their families and dear ones” and hence, he sought permission from the state governments to help the migrants reach home.

“The Maharashtra government officials were very helpful in terms of organising the paperwork and a special mention to the Karnataka government for welcoming the migrants back home.
“It was really moving for me to watch these migrants walking on roads including the little kids and old parents. I shall continue doing the same for other states as well to the best of my abilities,” Sonu said in a statement.
Earlier, Sonu Sood had also donated over 1,500 PPE kits to doctors across Punjab and had provided his Mumbai hotel for the accommodation of the medical forces.
Sonu has also been feeding thousands of underprivileged people along with providing meal kits to migrants in the Bhiwandi area during the holy month of Ramadan, the statement further read.
