Amid the nationwide lockdown owing to the fast-spreading coronavirus pandemic, homeless people and daily wage workers, who migrate to big cities from their home towns in search of jobs, are combating hunger for survival as the fast-spreading disease has now created a panic situation across India.

The situation had gone from bad to worse and during this crisis, celebrities, entrepreneurs, businessmen rose to the occasion by doing their best to help the country combat the pandemic.

There have been 73000+ confirmed coronavirus cases in India on Monday, including 2,300+ deaths. So far 22,455 people have recovered from the coronavirus epidemic.

One must imagine how difficult it is from being thousands of km away from home during this coronavirus crisis. With lack of income, several migrants workers are facing tough times while staying in different cities.

However, in an attempt to help migrant workers who got stuck in Maharashtra, actor Sonu Sood made travel arrangements for them in this nationwide lockdown. He arranged 10 buses for the hundreds of migrants who got stuck in the city owing to the epidemic, reports Times of India.

Sonu Sood might have played the role of a villain in several movies but he is a hero in real life.

Sonu Sood had not only sponsored the travel but also offered meal kits for the workers.

On top of that, Sonu Sood got all the permission required from the Karnataka and Maharashtra governments respectively and after which he made travel and food arrangements to accommodate all the migrants.

As many as ten buses left from Thane for a small town called Gulbarga in Karnataka, as reported by Hindustan Times.

The actor added that during the current global crisis, โ€œevery Indian deserves to be with their families and dear ones.โ€ He also thanked the government officials for all their help in sending the migrants back home.

โ€œIt was really moving for me to watch these migrants walking on roads including the little kids and old parents. I shall continue doing the same for other states as well to the best of my abilities,โ€ Sonu said.

The actor went on to add saying that he will try to help migrant workers from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha, and Jharkhand to get to their native places too.

Previously, Sonu Sood offered his hotel in Mumbai as a residential facility to help healthcare workers in this crisis and also provided PPE kits for doctors too.
