It won’t be wrong to say that a man who shows character in times of need is appreciated by one and all. So has been the case with actor Sonu Sood. Last year when the entire country was in a state of distress due to the pandemic, Sonu helped thousands of displaced people to reach their native places amidst the lockdown. What followed was him helping many more people with different things who reached out to him. He soon became the face of help in the country. Now, the actor has come out with yet another initiative. This time for emerging cricketers. Talking about the same, he told a leading daily, “I always dreamt of becoming a cricketer but I didn’t have a platform in our small town, but when I see all these young kids playing cricket it feels really good.”
He added, “I like batting as well as bowling but I didn’t get much time to play the sport. I feel we all should take some out from our busy work schedules and reinvent our passion. Sometimes when you see these kids playing not just cricket but any kind of sports, you feel motivated to follow them,” adding that he has had discussions with Cricfit founder Mikkail Vaswani on “creating a platform on a pan-India level where they (children) can explore their skills and enjoy the sports”. Now how cool is that?
