We all know actor Sonu Sood is helping the migrant workers to go back to their homes. Ever since news reports of Sonu Sood arranging transportation for migrant workers to their hometowns became public, the Bollywood actor’s social media timeline is being flooded with requests from people stuck in various corners of the country urging him to send them home and reunite them with their families during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.
