Sonu has been at the forefront of the COVID-19 war in the country. Since March, right after when the nationwide lockdown was announced, the actor began a mission to send migrants to their homes across the country and he continues to help the migrant workers in the state. After creating hysteria and garnering praises from all the corners in the country for his noble work, Sonu is going to write a book about his experience. In an official statement in the media, the actor revealed that a part of him now lives in the villages where he has found new friends and extended families by helping the migrants. The actor added that he’s excited to realise that he can share his experience with all through his book now.
Sonu’s book will be published by Penguin Random House India.
