“God bless you, take care,” Sood can be heard saying in the video.

In a statement to IANS, the actor said, “I feel it is my duty to help the migrants, the heartbeats of our country. We have seen migrants walking on the highways with their families and kids. We just can’t sit in the AC and tweet and show our concern till we don’t go on the roads, till we don’t become one of them. Otherwise, they will not have the trust that there is someone standing there for them. So I have been coordinating for their travels, for permissions from different states.”

He further claimed, “Now I get so many messages and hundreds of emails every day saying that they want to travel and I have been coordinating non-stop from the morning till the evening. This has become my only job during this lockdown. It gives me so much satisfaction that I can’t express in words. When I see these migrants and all those who are suffering, I feel that we have lost the respect of being a human. I can’t sleep properly in the night because the thoughts keep coming in my mind. The entire day I am reading emails, noting down their phone numbers, trying to call them. There are hundreds of them. I wish I could drive them personally to their villages day and night and reunite them with their families.”

Calling the labourers the ‘real face of India’, he said, “They are the real face of India who have worked hard to build our houses. They have left their homes, their parents, their loved ones and worked so hard just for us. Today, if we are not there to support them, I think we don’t have any rights to call ourselves human beings. We have to come forward and help them with the best of our abilities. We can’t leave them on the streets, we can’t see them dying on the highways, we can’t let those little children walking with them think that there is no one for their parents.”

The actor also vouched that he will do everything in his ability to make sure these migrants reach their destination.
