Sonu Sood has emerged as a real-life hero during the course of lockdown. The actor got a lot of recognition for his support and charity during the time of crisis. Now another feather has been added in his cap after his name was mentioned in the list of number one Asian celebrity on the planet for 2020.
The list which is published by the UK based Eastern Eye newspaper has mentioned the Sonu’s name in the 50 Asian Celebrities In The World list. The toped the list computing global stars, including from Hollywood, the music industry, television, literature and social media.
The actor said, “Thank you, Eastern Eye, for recognising my efforts. As the pandemic broke, I realised it was my duty to help my countrymen, it was an instinct that came from within. Eventually, this was something I came to Mumbai for, it was my responsibility as an Indian which I did. I think all the love of the people, which I received was simply their wishes and prayers who I helped. Once again, I won’t stop till my last breath”.
In terms of work, Sonu was quite popular for playing the villain in Bollywood films. However, now this impression has also changed and the actor is getting offers to play the protagonist in films.
Talking about his career plans Sonu told a news agency, “The kind of roles that have been offered are different. They are larger than life, and real life hero roles. Things that I have done in real life, they are trying to put that in my scripts, too, which is different. I have to make sure that I live up to the expectations and do justice with whatever I do.”
The actor continued: “There is a huge amount of responsibility. I came to the city to become an actor, and I will keep on doing what I enjoy the most. There will be new roles, and some new stories.”
