SONU SOOD has been announced as the brand ambassador of the Punjab government for its Covid vaccination programme.

Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh appointed Sood a day after meeting the actor, who called on him at his residence.

“There is no one more ideally suited to inspire and influence people to take the vaccine. There is a lot of hesitancy among people here in Punjab. Sonu’s popularity among them, and his exemplary role in helping tens of thousands of migrants reach safely home since the pandemic broke out last year, will help counter their reservations,” said the chief minister.

“When people hear this Punjab da puttar talk about benefits of the vaccine, and how safe and essential it is, they will believe him. Because they trust him,” he added.

Sonu said: “I feel blessed to be playing any part in this huge campaign of the Punjab government to protect the lives of the people of my home state.”

On the occasion, Sonu presented to the chief minister his book ‘I am no Messiah’, which he said captures the experiences of his journey from Moga to Mumbai. “I truly believe I am no saviour. I am just a human being playing my own small part in the big plans of God. If I can, in the process, touch any lives in any manner, I can only say – God has blessed me, he is guiding me to fulfill my duty”, a government statement quoted him saying.
