Acclaimed sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik pays tribute to Sonu Sood for his initiative towards migrant workers during lockdown


In the wake of the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown, Sonu Sood has been winning the hearts of millions by extending his helping hand to those in need. From providing food to sending hundreds of migrants to their hometown from Mumbai safely and also airlifting people stuck in different corners of the country, the actor has proven to be a real-life hero. Paying an ode to his selfless initiative towards those in trouble, internationally acclaimed Odisha-based sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik dedicated a creation to Sonu. Sudarsan shared the picture of the sand art on his official Twitter account. 

"We salute your noble deeds @SonuSood  Ji . Even words are not enough to describe your help to the helpless during this #CoronaPandemic time. My SandArt at Puri beach in Odisha with Respect and Gratitude," wrote Sudarsan while sharing the picture.

In response to Sudarsan's sand art, Sonu thanked him and said the love showered on him encourages him to work harder. "Thank you so much brother. Beginning my day with this encourages me to work harder. Love you so much and wish to come and give you a tight hug soon," Sonu wrote.


Sonu started his Ghar Bhejo initiative by arranging buses to send migrants stuck in Mumbai to their hometown in Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkand and Uttarakhand along with other states. Recently, he airlifted 177 Odia girls from Kerala and sent them back home safely. He also launched a toll-free helpline number for those who need assistance.
