Sonu Sood keen to play himself in a biopic

BizAsia Correspondent



Bollywood actor Sonu Sood announced that, if a film was made about his life, he would like to act his own part since he has “earned the right to be in it”.

Despite being hailed as a real-life hero in India for his help throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Sood felt that it is “too early” to make a film on his life.

Sood helped those affected by the sudden lockdown in the sub-continent, arranging various modes of transport, including buses, special trains and even chartered flights. In July, he arranged a charter to bring home over 1,500 students. 

All of these humanitarian actions led him to being chosen for the prestigious SDG Special Humanitarian Action award by the United Nations Development Programme. Moreover, celebrity chef Vikas Khanna has created a dish named after Sood’s birthplace, Moga.

Previously, he has won countless awards for his role as a villain in the 2010 Bollywood Blockbuster ‘Dabangg’ in 2010, and has worked with some of Bollywood’s biggest stars such as Salman Khan.

However, Sood is keen to continue making a difference by helping as many people as he can, rather than focusing on his own personal achievements. Talking to SpotboyE, the actor said, “I think it’s too early to do a film on me. I’ve so many more appointments to keep. So many goals to achieve”.

Sood views the current situation as an exceptional opportunity to help fellow human beings, and his fans have responded by sending countless cartoons depicting him as a superhero and creating memes praising his work.

He expressed uncertainty about immediate worldwide fame of his whole life story, saying, “I don’t know if I am ready to have my life out on screen”.

Undoubtedly, Sood presents a humble and modest example for the whole world.
