Sonu Sood has played a huge role in helping stranded migrants get back home during the lockdown. From arranging buses and food for them, to booking chartered planes. 

The actor booked a chartered plane on Thursday to help 173 migrant workers go back home from Mumbai to Dehradun. 


The airbus from the airline AirAsia India left from Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport at 1:57 pm and reached the Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun at 4:41 pm. The actor stated that this incident brought a smile to his face because some of the passengers have never boarded a plane before.  

Most of them have never had the opportunity to experience air travel, and the smiles on their faces brings me a lot of joy as they take this AirAsia India flight to reach home to their families and friends.

The passengers on the plane included children, pregnant women and migrant labourers who had been stranded behind after the lockdown was announced. 

Looks like Sonu Sood is ready to send every stranded migrant worker back home and we can’t stop applauding him for it.
