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.
India announced a sudden lockdown on 24 March, leaving migrants in the lurch.
Millions found themselves without jobs or a source of income. And with state borders sealed and trains and buses suspended, thousands of men, women and children were left with no other option but to walk, sometimes more than 1,000km (620 miles) to reach home.
