Opening up on how it all began, Sonu Sood said, “We asked them ‘where were they going?’ They said ‘please pack food for ten days for us, we are walking back to our homes in Kartanaka.’ I noticed they had really young children with them, some as young as one month old. I asked ‘how do you plan to take these children?’ and they replied ‘in 8-10 days we will reach our homes, you just arrange for our food.’ I asked them to give me two days; and I would see how I could arrange for some necessary permissions.” Also Read – Sonu Sood opens up on what made his 47th birthday truly special; says, ‘It seemed the whole country was celebrating’

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,” narrated an overjoyed Sonu.
