Sonu Sood has probably helped more people across the country during the coronavirus pandemic than anyone else, at least when it comes to an individual basis. However, among all the needy souls he has aided, there have got to be some that he couldn't do more for despite his best efforts. BollywoodLife recently got an opportunity to ask Sonu Sood whether there's a lost soul in particular who he wished he could've done more for during the COVID-19 crisis, but was unable to, and despite being a difficult topic to reflect on, the actor humbly revisited one such painful memory.
Opening up on the one COVID-19 victim whose loss he still thinks about, Sonu Sood said, “There was this 25-year old girl called Bharti from Nagpur. She was a warrior and fought like a tigress for over a month with Covid-19. I even got her airlifted from Nagpur to the Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad for a unique ECMO treatment. It wasn’t easy for her but she fought till the very end and never gave up hope. I wish I was able to save Bharti. She is just one such case, and there are many others who’ve touched my heart with their incredible energy, willpower, and determination towards life. I hope I can do justice to whoever has put their faith and trust in me.”
Revealing how all his COVID-19 relief work began, the Simmba actor added, “Last year when I saw that there were migrant workers walking all the way from the metros to their hometowns, that shook me. I saw those visuals and that made me feel that I should try and help them out. It all began from there and since then, my team and I have been doing whatever possible to help people through this pandemic.”
We obviously can't feel your pain, Sonu, but we know we speak for everyone when we say that you're doing more than any human being possibly could in this time of need.
