A little boy was born in Punjab in the year 1973 to a middle-class family but was destined to be called as ‘Messiah’ by millions of people.
Years passed, and that boy saw a dream of becoming an actor, and with so many ifs and buts around him, son of a fabric seller went on to uplift awards like Filmfare and IIFA. The boy was none other than ‘Sonu Sood’, the frightful, powerful, and a perfect on-screen villain, who can give any hero a run for his money.
But in the year, 2020, a virus named, COVID-19 came and was swallowing the whole world. Transport was shut down, and people with a roof over their heads closed their doors for the people in need. Still, the poor ran, walked, even crawled but sadly their souls had no choice than bidding farewell to their limped bodies lying on the heated deserted highways.
When the people in power went vulnerable, the rich showed their back, and on-screen heroes exposed their true colors. A villain came forward and helped more than 20,000 workers to reach their homes by arranging flights, buses, and trains.
He also bought 35 Indians stranded in Kyrgyzstan to Varanasi, gifted tractor to a distressed farmer, gave the job to a Hyderabad techie selling vegetables, and organized free medical camps on his 47th birthday across the nation for everyone but primarily for people in rural areas.
The only thing I want to say is, “You gave the much-needed fuel to the flame of humanity, which was on the brink of getting extinguished by the winds of selfishness, for introducing us to a genuine hero, but above all for proving us that this world runs on the shoulders of people, who are rich by heart because most of the people, who are rich by money, are living for themselves only.”
Happy Birthday Sonu Sood.
