Actor Sonu Sood has been named on the top spot in the list of South Asian celebrities. He helped helpless migrant labourers and other people left stranded during the Corona pandemic related lockdown. The first of its kind and a unique ranking was released in London on Wednesday.
The 47-year-old Bollywood actor faced stiff competition to top the list of ’50 Asian celebrities in the world’ published by the UK weekly newspaper Eastern Eye.
The list honours those artists who have made a positive impression in the society and inspired people through their work. In gratitude for the honour, Sood said, ‘During the pandemic I realized that it is my duty to help the people of my country.’
At the time of the COVID-19 lockdown, Sood assisted the Indian migrant laborers to reach their homes. The list honoured him for this. Eastern Eye editor Asjad Nazir prepared the list. He said that Sood deserves this honor because no other person has done so much to help others during the lockdown.
