Sonu Sood’s popularity as the messiah of the masses remains undiminished this year. On Saturday he paid a visit to the Shirdi temple where there seemed to be a larger crowd of Sonuworshippers than for the God inside the temple.
A video that has gone viral shows hordes of fans calling him out as ‘The Real Hero’.
Sonu admits he is numbed by the adulation.“When something like this(the adulation at the temple) happens, I don’t know how to to react. It scares me. How do I continue to live up to people’s expectations?”
Sonu admits to be called out as a real hero means a whole lot of added responsibilities. “How do I react to something like this?I’ve never heard of an actor being called a real hero. It means I’m seen as someone who doesn’t only throw punches on screen. What can I say? I am honoured. Such trust and faith is very encouraging. It motivates me to work harder.”
For those who think Sonu Sood is getting way too much attention Sonu has this to say. “I completely agree. I don’t want all this attention. I just want to continue doing my work.I am not doing anything great.All of us need to give back to society what we’ve earned. I’m doing just that.”
