New Delhi: Bollywood actor and humanitarian Sonu Sood, who recently recovered from the novel coronavirus COVID, gave his fans a glimmer of hope in their fight against the disease on Saturday, urging people to unite in their fight.
The 47-year-old actor took to Twitter to post, “Can’t sleep..” When my phone rings in the middle of the night, all I hear is a desperate voice pleading to save his/her loved ones. We are living in trying times, but tomorrow will be better; just tighten your reins. We will prevail as a team. We simply require additional hands.”
Sonu, who has garnered attention for his philanthropic work, was added to the list of Bollywood celebrities diagnosed with COVID-19 on April 17 alongside Manish Malhotra, Katrina Kaif, Akshay Kumar, Vicky Kaushal, Govinda, Bhumi Pednekar, and Aamir Khan. On April 23, he finally recovered from the lethal virus.
Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, and several others had previously contracted the virus.
On a related note, the ‘Dabangg’ actor received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on April 7 at Punjab’s Apollo Hospital. The actor took to social media to share a photo of himself in the hospital.
Along with vaccination against the deadly infection, the actor launched ‘Sanjeevani – A Shot of Life,’ an initiative to encourage people to get vaccinated against the novel coronavirus and to raise awareness about the country’s immunisation drive.
He recently arranged for an air ambulance to transport a critically ill Covid-19 patient from Nagpur to Hyderabad for specialised treatment.
Separately, Sonu recently announced a new film titled ‘Kisaan’, which will be directed by E Niwas and will be produced by filmmaker Raaj Shaandilyaa. Additionally, he will appear in Chiranjeevi’s upcoming Telugu film ‘Acharya’.
Sonu will also appear in Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film ‘Prithviraj,’ which is scheduled to release on November 5.
