Earlier Sonu Sood also responded to the people’s allegations against him that he wants to enter the political world. He said, “If I get into politics, I’ll give my 100 per cent. I’ll make sure that no one has any problem. I’ll solve their problems, I’ll spend time. So, I think I am not ready for it at the moment. And I think that at the moment, I am not answerable to anyone and that is why I can do things in a more open way. I don’t have to ask anyone or any party ‘what should I do’. I decide and do it on my own will”.
