While there are many personalities who’ve tried to stay in the limelight online through dance videos and social media posts, Sonu Sood has made the headlines for all the right reasons. First, for arranging transport to migrant labourers, and now, finding them a mean to earn their livelihood, it seems like you just cannot keep Sonu Sood out of the action, even in real life.
On his 47th birthday, the Dabangg star announced three lakh jobs for migrant labourers on the job portal “Pravasi Rojgar”. He had announced this portal earlier this month.
Throughout the lockdown, Sonu Sood has made provisions for destitute labourers who could not even find a way to travel back to their homes. Not only has the Bollywood star gotten people home safe and sound, he now helps them find a way to make ends meet.
Sood posted two ads regarding employment application and shared that the jobs came with additional benefits like PF and ESI.
He stated, “On my birthday a small initiative from my side…3 lakh jobs tied up for Pravasirojgar.com. All these will provide good wages, PF, ESI, and other benefits.”
He further thanked the organisations that had partnered with him for the initiative while stating, “Thank you AEPC, CITI, Trident, Quesscorp, Amazon, Sodex, Urban Co, Portea, and all others for creating these opportunities with me. #AbIndiaBanegaKamyaab @pravasirojgar,” he posted as the caption.
Times like these bring out the real heroes, and throughout this pandemic, Sonu Sood has time and again proved that for all the villainous roles he’s played on-screen, he’s a true hero off of it.
