A temple dedicated to Sonu Sood was inaugurated in Telangana on Sunday. Located in Dubba Tanda village of Siddipet district, the temple has been built to recognise the humanitarian work done by the Bollywood star.
Sood helped thousands of stranded migrant workers reach their hometowns during the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
Talking to ANI, a local resident said, “He helped so many people during the pandemic. It’s a matter of great delight for us that we’ve constructed his temple.”
Sonu Sood, who has been receiving praise from various quarters, is overwhelmed by the gesture. He said in a statement, “This is an extremely overwhelming moment. But at the same time I don’t deserve this. I’m just a common man who helped his brothers and sisters.”
Earlier this month, Sood had mortgaged his properties in Mumbai, including two shops and six flats, to raise Rs 10 crore to help the underprivileged, migrant workers and patients who suffer from serious diseases.
