Actor Sonu Sood has ascended to real-world superhero status almost overnight amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The actor is being hailed for turning good samaritan for thousands of migrant workers during the nationwide lockdown. He is responding to each request personally via Twitter. Not only did he send hundreds of migrants home from different cities, he has also launched an app to help them find jobs once the Covid-19 crisis is over.
