Indian actor and philanthropist Sonu Sood is once again winning hearts on social media for another heartwarming gesture. While returning from South Africa, the 48-year-old opted to offer his own business class seat to an elderly person, and he boarded the flight with an economy class seat instead .
This incident first came into the spotlight when one of the actor’s followers posted about the incident on Twitter. As a result, Sonu quoted the post on Twitter and confirmed the instance with a statement. “Sometimes economy class seats are more comfortable than business class seats,” he wrote on the microblogging platform.
Sometimes economy class seats are more comfortable than business class seats 🙏 https://t.co/heSb3HPtV8

Use your influence to help those in need
In March, the actor joined the Operation Ganga project, an evacuation measure after President Vladimir Putin’s Russia decided to launch a military invasion of Ukraine. Since the attack began, India has accelerated its evacuation process to help bring countless students home. Even as the central government plans to bring around 6,300 Indians back to the country by March 8 under Operation Ganga, Sonu has also chosen to be part of it to help the cause.
Many stranded students from Lviv to Kyiv have contacted the 48-year-old on social media asking for help. The Sood Foundation quickly responded to these requests and helped them get in touch with the Indian embassies in Poland and Romania. Additionally, many students took to social media and shared clips of how Sonu helped them return to India. For the uninitiated, when the COVID pandemic-induced lockdown in 2020 was at its peak, Sood also helped many migrant workers return home.
