Bollywood actor Sonu Sood has become a rage on social media for the tremendous work he is doing for the unfortunate migrant workers in Mumbai. He has helped thousands of such people and has received praises from all corners. Latest to join the list is the Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari.

The Maharashtra Governor welcomes Sonu Sood at Raj Bhavan and lauded his commendable work of arranging buses for the migrant workers to ferry them to their home towns in other states.

The governor applauded Sood for his work and assured him support. A Raj Bhavan statement said, “Film star @SonuSood called on at Raj Bhavan, Mumbai today. Shri Sood briefed about his ongoing work to help the migrant people to reach their home states and to provide them food. Applauded his great work and assured him of his fullest support in these endeavours.”

Sonu has recently helped 177 women stranded in Kerala who want to reach their hometown in Odisha. The Dabangg actor arranged an Air Asia flight for them and took special permission from the government to have Kochi and Bhubaneswar airports opened.

Talking to a leading news agency recently, Sonu explained the reason what dragged him towards this noble cause. He said, “I was deeply saddened to see them walking with their little children on foot. These are the people who built our houses, our offices, they have laid the roads and I feel that we should not leave them in such distress.”

Sonu has been receiving hundreds of messages on daily basis from the stranded workers who want his help in reaching their homes.
