Bollywood actor Sonu Sood is celebrating his 48th birthday today. The actor who has been a part of films such as Dabangg (2010), Jodhaa Akbar (2008) and Simmba (2018) has now dedicated himself to numerous social causes. Ever since the nationwide lockdown was declared by the union government, the migrants’ crisis unraveled. When migrants were stranded all over the country, Sonu Sood came forward for their help.
What started from the migrants’ crisis, has now become a body of philanthropic works. In 2020, he helped scores of migrants and other needy persons in reaching their homes. Sood’s team diligently reached out to people in distressing times. The actor and philanthropist made sure to provide help to the underprivileged sections of society.

Sonu Sood says, ‘I’m getting calls from different states. There are seven-eight people walking, some are on bicycles, some on bikes, who’re coming all the way to Mumbai on my birthday. Reaching out to people takes a lot of time, getting connected and then drawing an infrastructure which will help them. It’s a big challenge.
