Sonu Sood also retweeted a video of himself video calling the principal of the school. In the video, the principal can be seen thanking the actor for the generous initiative. Sonu Sood also speaks to one of the students during the video call and wishes them good luck for their studies.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced India’s education system to go online. However, the country lacks the infrastructure for that to happen as many can’t afford smartphones. On 24 August, Sonu Sood had come across a news article about the kids in Morni and how they had to travel miles in order to get access to smartphones for online classes.
Sood responded with, “No more travelling for these kids. They will have their smartphones by tomorrow”
And sure enough, the studens did receive smartphones in time!
