When the pandemic hit and the subsequent lockdowns were installed, Sonu began by helping people, mostly immigrants, get to their hometowns and ease their financial constraints. Soon, people were throwing requests for their medical and educational needs and the actor mostly answered them with the required help.

Sonu told The Man magazine in an interview, “For my last mentions, all the money I made, I asked them to give it to charity. Sometimes they give it directly to a school or to a hospital, sometimes they pass it through our charity – we are open to anything I’ll give you a small example: a gentleman called Wilson from Aster Hospitals contacted me on a recent trip to Dubai and said that the group would like to partner with me to help people with their medical needs.”


He added: “So I said I would promote hospitals, but give me 50 liver transplants. That’s almost 12 crore in value. As we speak, there are two transplants underway for people who could never afford these surgeries. It’s the magic of connecting the dots. People come to you and tell you how can we help you and we find a way.”


Sonu was most recently seen in Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan-star Acharya. He played the antagonist in the film which hit theaters on April 29. He is also the host of the latest edition of the MTV reality show Roadies.

Next, Sonu will be seen alongside Akshay Kumar and Manushi Chillar in the upcoming historical drama, Prithviraj. Directed by Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi, the film is set to hit theaters on June 3.
