Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who made his career by playing a villain, is being hailed as a real-life hero in India.
Sood has been helping thousands of migrant workers, stranded by the Covid-19 lockdown in Mumbai, return home.
“It gave me sleepless nights when I saw visuals of people walking hundreds of kilometres to reach their villages,” the actor told the BBC.
“Today we are distributing food and groceries every day to 45,000 people in slums, those stranded on the roads and those walking on the highways,” he added.
