After turning messiah for the needy during the coronavirus-induced lockdown, Sonu Sood often indulges in witty conversations with his fans on Twitter. Many of his fans contact him on Twitter for help and the actor never disappoints them. Among many genuine requests, he receives several funny wishes one cannot help but laugh about. Today, a man asked him to sponsor his wedding. And Sonu Sood had a witty response for the same.
A man on Twitter asked Sonu Sood to sponsor her wedding. He wrote, “Aap shaadi karwa denge sir (Will you sponsor my wedding, sir) (sic).” The actor handled the situation using his intellect. He replied, “Kyun nahin… shaadi ke mantra bhi padh dunga. Bas ladki dhundne ka kasht aap kar le (Why not. I’ll read the mantras too. You just take the trouble of finding a girl) (sic).”
In October last year, a man on Twitter asked Sonu Sood if he can help him reach the Maldives as he wants to spend his holidays there. The man asked, “Sir, mujhe Maldives jaana hai, pahuncha ke do na (Sir, I want to go to the Maldives, help me out).” The actor replied in Hindi, “Cycle pe jaoge ke riksha pe bhai (Would you prefer a bicycle or a rickshaw)?”
Previously, he had also received request for a car, to which the actor had replied in his trademark style, “Why self drive? I will drive you down.. kindly let me know which car you prefer and what AC temperature you would like me to maintain?”
This year on Maha Shivratri, Sonu Sood received massive flak on social media. Sood took to Twitter to share a message with all his fans. He urged them to celebrate the occasion by helping other people and not by forwarding photographs of Lord Shiva. Tweeting in Hindi, Sonu wrote, “Shiv bhagvaan ki photo forward karke nahin kisi ki madad karke Maha Shivratri manaen. Om Namah Shivaay (sic).”
But this didn’t go down well with the Twitter users. Several Twitter users took offence to his words and started trending #WhoTheHellAreUSonuSood on the micro-blogging site. They asked why should Sonu Sood or anyone tell them how to celebrate a festival.
While Sonu Sood was trolled for his tweet by a certain section, there were many who supported him. They wrote that it is shameful that a person like Sonu Sood who helps others is being trolled like this.
On the work front, Sonu Sood will be seen playing the lead role in E Niwas’s Kisaan. The film is being produced by Raaj Shaandilyaa, who directed Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Dream Girl. In December, Sood had opened up about how filmmakers have started approaching him with lead roles in their films due to his philanthropic work for migrant workers during the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
Sonu Sood also has Akshay Kumar’s Prithviraj in the pipeline. The film stars Manushi Chhillar as the female lead.
