Sonu Sood recently celebrated his 47th birthday, and after long, a Bollywood actor got the entire country to celebrate with him and pour in good wishes as that’s the kind of goodwill he has gained over the past few months given his unrelenting altruism to ward tons of migrant workers during lockdown emanating from the coronavirus pandemic. And being the generous soul that he is, the actor recently opened on this birthday was truly special as “it seemed the whole country was celebrating” with him and his family.
In an interview with journalist Subhash K. Jha, Sonu Sood said, “This birthday was special. Never have I been so warmly and extensively greeted from all over the country. It seemed the whole country was celebrating. People whom I was fortunate enough to help reach their homes kept calling the whole day from different states. There were people video-conferencing, wanting to reach out to me, to just wish me well. It was overwhelming. I tried speaking to people from each state for 15-20 minutes. I feel embarrassed to get so much attention at the same time I feel humbled and grateful. Who gets so much love from so many? Only the most blessed do.”
Talking about missing his parents on his special day and the one wish he still has, Sonu added, “I wish my mom and dad were here to see the love that I got on this special day. They would have been proud of me. They would have hugged me. I wish this corona thing would end. And I want people to come out with a stronger mind set after this crisis. I wish for a stronger India after this crisis.”
You deserve every bit of this outpouring of pure love, Sonu. Happy birthday once again.
