According to a report in TOI, Sonu Sood has launched a scholarship programme in his late mother’s name, Professor Saroj Sood. About it he was quoted as saying, “During the past few months, I have seen how the underprivileged struggled to pay for their children’s education. While some did not have phones to attend online classes, others did not have money to pay the fees. So, I have tied up with universities across the country to offer scholarships under the name of my mother, Professor Saroj Sood. She used to teach in Moga (Punjab), free of cost. She had told me to take her work ahead, and I feel that this is the right time.” Sonu Sood Offers to Help Students From Remote Areas to Reach Examination Centres For JEE, NEET Exams.
