Sonu Sood Suggests A Welfare Fund Backed By Prosperous Producers, Directors and Actors - EXCLUSIVE
Sonu Sood’s heart still beats the loudest for the film fraternity.  “Of course every human life matters. And if I had my way I wouldn’t allow a single life to be lost. Having said that, I do belong first and foremost to the film fraternity. And it causes me a lot of pain to see so many daily-wage earners from our industry suffering and jobless. We are doing our best for them. Covid has claimed the livelihoods  of so many, and  our industry wasn’t spared either.”

Sonu is thrilled with the lockdown being lifted. “So happy that the shooting is resuming. But let’s not get carried away. Let’s stick to the guidelines that will be put out. The  number  of  people  on the set should  not exceed  the  Covid guideline and  I think  we should avoid intimate  scenes, at  least for now.” Sonu also has a request for all the film federation and associations which claim to work for the benefit of the thousands of workers in the industry.  “There should be a fund for medical emergencies and for those workers who retire, prematurely or otherwise. Who would have imagined that a catastrophe like Covid would fall on us so suddenly?  We should learn a  lesson from this experience. There should always be  some funds  laid aside for such  emergencies.” ALSO READ: Sonu Sood Makes People Aware Of Imposters Asking For Donations; Asks Netizens To Report His FAKE Profile To The Police

Sonu has a suggestion. “All those actors,  producers and directors who have prospered from the film industry….why don’t they contribute regularly to a welfare fund for daily wage-earners in the film industry?. That’s the only way to survive a crisis.  Even if it is a bit late, why  can’t the  empowered financially privileged section of the industry lookout for those  in our fraternity who  are vulnerable to sudden financial  crises?” ALSO READ: Sonu Sood Expresses Gratitude As Sara Ali Khan Contributes To His Charity Foundation Amid The COVID-19 Crisis; Says ‘You Have Inspired The Youth Of The Nation’
