Sonu Sood airlifts migrant workers stuck in Kerela amid the lockdown

Bollywood actor Sonu Sood has been actively participating in making constant efforts to support migrant workers wanting to go home. He started off small and now, everyone has been hailing him for doing the right thing in these testing times. Sonu Sood airlifts migrants workers stuck in Kerela is the news all over the internet today.

Yes, that is right. It started off with providing migrant workers with food and buses, and now, it is this big. The actor arranged a plane for 177 workers stuck in Kerela. The women stranded in Ernakulam wanted to return to Odisha.

As Sonu Sood airlifts these women, the world is celebrating him for being the saviour we all need. Employed at a Kochi factory, these girls were doing the odd jobs of embroidery and stitching while in the district. When the factory was shut down due to the ongoing lockdown, they had nowhere to go to. And that is when Sonu Sood came to their rescue after knowing about them from a friend in Bhubaneswar.

Sonu Sood airlifts migrant workers in Kerela and receives loads of love on Twitter:

The actor has been been on the mission to send these migrant workers home as a part of his #GharBhejo initiative. People from across the country have hailed the actor for his constant efforts in trying to help these migrant workers. His Twitter is flooded with not just requests, but also gratitude from people he has helped send home.

While speaking to TOI, Sonu said how he wants to help the migrants because he was one himself once. He further added how seeing their photographs and hearing their stories, he was reminded of his early days.

He added, “I first came to Mumbai by train, without a reserved ticket. I stood by the door and slept in the space next to the washroom. I know what struggle is.”
