Indian film actor Sonu Sood and his team recently distributed food to 28,000 people across the coastal lines of Mumbai and moved them to several schools and colleges, before cyclone Nisarga hit Maharashtra coast.
The actor also arranged buses and cars to send migrants safely to their homelands.
In a statement Sonu Sood said: “Today, all of us are facing tough times and the best way to fight this is by being each other’s strongest support system. My team and I have distributed food to over 28,000 people from the coastal areas across Mumbai and rehabilitated them in various schools and colleges. We are making sure all of them are safe.”
Cyclone Nisarga, which made landfall near Alibaug in Raigad district, just 95 kilometers from Mumbai, has claimed three lives till now.
According to Indian Meteorological Department, “There was a slight change of direction towards north-eastwards which meant the impact of the cyclone on Mumbai was less severe than originally expected.”
However, Sonu Sood has been hailed as a hero on Twitter for making arrangements for reuniting stranded labourers with their families in lockdown.
He recently arranged a flight for 177 stranded women to travel back from Kochi to Bhubaneshwar.
