EXCLUSIVE: Sonu Sood: ‘You Are Successful Only When You Can Help Someone’, My Mother Once Said


'I Had No Formula To Do It'

‘I
Had
No
Formula
To
Do
It’

“I
had
no
formula
to
do
it,
but
the
only
intention
was
I
won’t
let
them
walk
on
these
highways”,
the
actor
added.

Thousands
and
lakhs
of
migrant
workers
are
jobless
and
penniless
since
the
lockdown
was
imposed
in
March,
leaving
them
with
no
other
option
than
to
walk
thousands
of
kilometers
to
their
states.
Speaking
about
the
journey,
Sonu
Sood
said,
“The
first
time
I
spoke
to
migrants
travelling
to
Karnataka
and
there
were
almost
350
of
them.
So
I
got
all
the
permissions
ready
and
I
sent
them
on
bus.
That
was
the
first
step.
And
then
it
started
from
Karnataka,
to
Bihar,
Uttar
Pradesh,
Jharkhand
and
Chhattisgarh.”

'When I Took This Intiative, I Knew That There Can't Be Any Numbers'

‘When
I
Took
This
Intiative,
I
Knew
That
There
Can’t
Be
Any
Numbers’

“I
started
my
contribution
by
giving
my
hotel
to
all
the
nurses,
paramedical
staff
and
doctors,
which
is
in
Juhu,
so
that
they
can
come,
rest,
go
back,
and
give
their
maximum
time
on
duty,
so
they
can
save
more
lives.
And
till
now,
they
are
there.
So,
I
think
it
was
a
small
bit.
And
when
this
migrant
intiative
started,
I
knew
that
there
can’t
be
any
numbers
till
the
last
migrant
reaches
his
home”,
Sonu
said.

'We Have Almost Sent 18,000 To 20,000 People Back To Their Families'

‘We
Have
Almost
Sent
18,000
To
20,000
People
Back
To
Their
Families’

Sonu
Sood
and
team
have
almost
sent
18,000
to
20,000
people
back
to
their
families
till
now.
Talking
about
the
process,
he
said,
“First
I
have
started
on
my
own,
then
lots
of
people
stepped
in.
Very
close
friend
of
mine,
Neeti
Goyal
and
we
were
doing
a
food
drive,
distributing
food,
once
travelling
through
a
highway,
we
saw
these
migrants
and
then
we
thought
why
not
get
into
this
whole
issue
and
try
to
save
and
convince
these
people
that
you
please
stay.
And
once
I
had
send
the
first
group
of
people,
the
word
spread.
And
then
the
trust
factor
came
and
people
started
calling
me
and
I
started
sending
them
back
to
their
home.
Many
people
who
had
planned
to
walk,
they
stayed
and
waited
for
me
to
get
those
permissions
and
send
them
back.
So
I
knew
that
the
trust
factor
is
very
important
and
there
is
responsibility
on
my
shoulders
to
get
them
back
to
their
homes.”

'I Wish Today I Could Have 30 Hours'

‘I
Wish
Today
I
Could
Have
30
Hours’

“I
started
a
toll
free
number,
then
I
started
getting
all
my
chartered
accountant
and
all
my
friends
on
my
team
and
there
are
almost
15-20
people
who
are
just
making
those
numbers
right,
segregating
who
is
travelling
to
which
districts.
I
had
a
team
of
50-60
volunteers
who
are
just
feeding
people.
So
this
is
the
support
system
that
really
helped
me
to
move
ahead
and
still
miles
to
go”,
he
further
added.

Explaining
about
his
continuous
effort
to
help
migrants,
the
actor
said,
“This
initiative
is
the
most
important
phase
of
my
life.
I
never
thought
that
it
will
go
to
this
level,
I
thought
I
would
help
few
hundreds
and
then
I
wanted
to
help
thousands,
and
now
I
want
to
help
everyone.
So
it
happened
automatically,
and
I
am
blessed
that
God
chose
me
as
a
tool
to
help
them.
I
think
this
is
my
duty
now.
It
takes
almost
20
hours
of
my
day
and
I
wish
today
I
could
have
30
hours,
so
I
could
spend
more
time
with
them.”

'The Journey Is On And I Will Leave No Stone Unturned'

‘The
Journey
Is
On
And
I
Will
Leave
No
Stone
Unturned’

Overwhelmed
with
the
love
and
blessings
of
the
people,
he
said,
“the
best
thing
I
have
heard
from
the
migrants
so
far
is,
they
called
me
and
they
said
that
they
named
their
kid
as
Sonu
Sood
Srivastava,
and
I
asked
them
that
how
it
can
be
Sonu
Sood
Srivastava,
it
must
be
Sonu
Srivastava.
But
they
said,
no
sir,
not
in
my
family
but
in
many
families
you
will
have
Sonu
Soods’.
So,
I
think
that
was
very
special.
And
that
will
stay
with
me
forever.
I
just
wish
that
I
could
reach
to
more
and
more
people
and
make
them
reach
their
home.
The
journey
is
on
and
I
will
leave
no
stone
unturned
to
make
my
parents
proud
who
are
sitting
in
heaven,
and
guiding
me.”

'You Are Successful Only When You Can Help Someone'

‘You
Are
Successful
Only
When
You
Can
Help
Someone’

He
ended
the
interview
with
a
thoughtful
line
said
by
his
mother;
“You
are
successful
only
when
you
can
help
someone”.
“And
I
am
trying
to
do
my
bit
and
I
will
walk
on
the
footsteps
of
my
mother”,
concluded
Sonu
Sood.
