In the past few months, Sonu Sood became the real-life hero for sending thousands of migrants and people stuck in Mumbai due to the lockdown to their hometown. The actor, under his initiative Ghar Bhejo, arranged buses, special trains and even flight tickets for those who wanted to return back home. Winning hearts, Sonu is determined to support those in need. Now, taking his initiative ahead, the Simmba actor has stepped forward to assist women who are victims of domestic violence. According to reports, the number of domestic violence cases has increased drastically amid the lockdown. In the wake of this, Sonu has joined hands with Hothur Foundation to launch the campaign titled Victory over Violence. The campaign will encourage and support women to narrate their stories of domestic abuse. Sonu will share them on social media to create awareness.
