At a time when the country is fronting a surge in COVID-19 cases and citizens are running post to post for oxygen cylinders, hospital beds, medication and more, actor Sonu Sood has come to the saving of thousands across the nation. The ‘Dabangg’ star who turned leader for the masses during the nationwide lockdown last year, continues to help citizens in distress amid the second wave of the virus.
From addressing him as a ‘messiah’ to asking for a Bharat Ratna for him, fans and several celebrities have been rooting for Sonu Sood, for reasons more than one. The Bollywood actor, who’s giving his every jiffy to help the nation ever since the spread of the coronavirus last year, has, however, declined the requests of running for the post of India’s PM.
On Tuesday, Sonu was interviewed by some photographers in Mumbai, about the latest demand doing the rounds on social media, that he should run for Prime Minister. While serving cold drinks to the paparazzi that congregated around his residence, Sonu politely said, “Hum aam insaan ache hain bhai, aam insaan better hain (I’m better off as a common man).”
Further sharing his idea of entering politics, Sonu added, “Bhai log khade hain na humare, kya karenge elections mein khade ho ke? Woh apna kaam nahin hai na (When my brothers are fighting elections, what will I do there? That’s not my work).”
The photographer was reiterating Bigg Boss 14 finalist Rakhi Sawant who recently recommended Sonu Sood as the next Prime Minister of India. Even actor-comedian Vir Das rooted for Sonu on Twitter last week, when a user said, “@thevirdas for prime minister 2024.” In his reply, Vir Das wrote, “Wrong number. Dial Sonu Sood.”
Well, we won’t be surprised to see Sonu Sood leading the nation soon. The hard work and dedication that Sonu has shown during this pandemic has certainly made him worthy to run for PM.
