As the second wave of coronavirus continues to grapple the country, many celebrities have come forward and made contributions to aid those in need. They have also taken to their social media accounts to amplify Covid-19 resources, including oxygen cylinders, hospital beds, ambulances, and medicines.
Sonu acted as a messiah for millions of stranded people during the nationwide lockdown induced due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year when flights or trains were not operational. He had helped stranded Indians, both within and outside India to reach their homes.
Since the beginning of the lockdown last year, Sonu worked tirelessly to help the disadvantaged in every way possible. He launched the ‘Ghar Bhejo’ campaign to send migrants home and bring Indian students back home.
He made traveling arrangements even when local transport was not available. Sonu launched an application ‘Pravasi Rojgar’, a job portal to help both skilled and unskilled workers find jobs. The purpose of the application was to provide jobs to those who had gone to their home during lockdown and lost their jobs. Sonu who tested positive for COVID-19 on April 17, recovered well and tested negative on April 23.
