Guwahati: Amid the pandemic situation in the entire nation, we have watched how Bollywood actor Sonu Sood transformed from an on-screen villain to a real-life superhero. It began with him hiring buses to send home stranded migrant workers walking back to their towns in the scorching heat.
Today, the actor has become everyone’s go-to saviour in times of need. There are several people tweeting to him, calling him or waiting outside his home for assistance because they know they’ll be heard. At a time when the country is gripped by a health and economic crisis, and very little hope, Sood’s kindness and generosity have made him a superhuman being.
In a similar incident, narrated by a Guwahati-based young man, Sood’s superior grade of generosity and kind-heartedness could be seen.
A Facebook user from Assam namely Anupam Jyoti Medhi while sharing his experience with the actor said, “My 85-year-old grandmother was detected positive for COVID-19 two days back. She was having breathing-related issues, therefore we immediately shifted her to Gauhati medical college hospital (GMCH). Her health started to deteriorate last night and we received a phone call from the hospital management. They told us to shift her immediately to an ICU as there was no ICU bed available at the GMCH. We were looking for an ICU bed at several private hospitals in the middle of the night, but found none. Meanwhile, one of my cousin sisters took to Twitter for help and instantly Bollywood actor Sonu Sood responded to the tweet and arranged us an ICU facility at the GMCH.”
Anupam Jyoti Medhi also mentioned that he had shared the post to thank the Bollywood actor for his support amid the crisis of ICU facilities in the city of Guwahati.
Time8 also tried to contact Anupam Jyoti Medhi for his version of the fact but found him not reachable.
