In a subsequent tweet, he shared that alone he can only do so much. He asked his fans to extend as much help as possible and save lives together. His tweet added, "It's time not to blame anyone but to come forward for a needy who needs your help. Try to provide medical needs to the ones who don't have an access. LET'S SAVE LIVES TOGETHER. Always there for u."
On the work front, Sonu will soon be seen in the Telugu film Acharya and the Akshay Kumar-starrer historical drama Prithviraj. Earlier, he told IANS that he has wrapped up the film's shoot but the makers are waiting for the pandemic to be over before confirming the release date.
