Actor Sonu Sood is actively working towards helping migrant workers reach their hometowns. Now, the actor has helped 177 girls who were migrants working in Kerala. They were flown back home to Orissa by Sonu Sood.
The Simmba actor was informed about the same by a friend. Sood arranged for permissions for the aircraft to be flown from Kochi to Bhubhaneshwar so the girls could return home. “We got to know about these girls stranded in Kerala. We found out their phone numbers and talked to them. I assured them help. They were not getting proper food and were desperate to return home,” Sonu told Times of India.
