Mumbai: Actor Sonu Sood steals the limelight for the charity work he has been doing during the lockdown and after it. The Bollywood actor Sonu Sood is making headlines not just for his brilliant acting skills but also for his humanitarian gestures.

As reported by the India Express Sonu Sood has mortgaged two shops and six flats located in Mumbai’s Juhu area.
