about the video

Actor Sonu Sood, who helped thousands of migrants return home during the lCovid induced lockdown, has been honoured by a Kolkata Durga puja pandal with a life-size statue. The Keshtopur Prafulla Kanan Durga Puja committee has decided to make the struggle of the migrant workers during lockdown as the theme of their puja. Sonu Sood had worked on the ground and hired buses, trains and even flights to ensure that stranded migrant workers could return to their homes. His effort had been lauded by people from across the spectrum and had been hailed as a ‘messiah of migrants’ by many. The actor also responded to the installation of a life-size statue saying ‘this is the biggest award ever.’ A member of the puja committee said that they have decided to use the plight of the migrant workers as theme for the puja this year as they had struggled a lot during the lockdown. Earlier, another pandal had replaced the idol of Goddess Durga with that of a female migrant worker carrying her children. Watch the video for all the details.
