Sood in his recent conversation with Anupama Chopra was asked about the amount he spends on every bus and it's too big to digest. He revealed that it cost around Rs 1.8 lakh to over Rs 2 lakh depending on where the migrants are headed. Also, since social distancing guidelines have to be followed, the buses aren't fully occupied and hence, he has to keep arranging more. The actor had even revealed his helpline numbers for the migrants who are still stuck in the city. Besides getting appreciated by Maharashtra governor, the actor and his commendable work were even praised by Punjab CM, Amarinder Singh.
