Sonu Sood, popular Bollywood actor, have been recently hailed as a hero by many for his philanthropic endeavors during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
From tending to him as a 'messiah' to requesting a Bharat Ratna for him, fans and a few big names have been pulling for Sonu Sood, for his contribution towards the grave situated in India inflicted by the second wave of COVID-19.
Amid requests of pitching the Bollywood actor for the highest executive office in the country, Sonu Sood humbly turned down the proposal saying he is content living like a regular man.
Sonu was questioned by some paparazzies in Mumbai on Tuesday about the new demand for him to run for the post of Prime Minister to which he replied while serving cold drinks to the paparazzies gathered around his residence, "Hum aam insaan ache hain bhai, aam insaan better hain" meaning "I am better off as a common man."
Further, when asked about his prospects of entering politics in the future, he replied by saying, "Bhai log khade hain na humare, kya karenge elections mein khade ho ke? Woh apna kaam nahin hai na," which means "when my brothers are fighting elections, what will I do there? That's not my work."
Recently, Big Boss 14 finalist Rakhi Sawant and actor/comedian Vir Das endorsed Sonu Sood to be the next Prime Minister of India.
Sonu Sood, ever since the advent of the second wave of coronavirus pandemic, has ever readily extended his helping hand for needy COVID-19 patients to get proper access to supply of medical oxygen and hospital beds. The actor-philanthropist recently brought oxygen plants from France and other countries to India to aid in the battle against the second wave of Covid-19.
"We are bringing in oxygen plants for the people in need. We have seen a lot of people suffering because of the unavailability of oxygen cylinders. We have got it now, and are already giving it to people. However, these oxygen plants will not only supply to entire hospitals but will also get these oxygen cylinders filled up, which will solve a major problem of the people suffering from Covid-19," said Sonu Sood in a recent statement.
