Amaravati: Reel life villain Sonu Sood turned real-life hero once again, this time by gifting a tractor on Sunday to a farmer in a remote village in Andhra Pradesh to help him till the land.
The actor came up with the gift after coming through a video clip on Twitter wherein a tomato farmer in Madanapalle in Chittoor district was seen ploughing the land with his two daughters carrying the yoke on their shoulders.
In his instant reaction, Sood promised a pair of ox to the farmer, but later said the family deserved a tractor.
“So sending you one. By evening a tractor will be ploughing your fields. Stay blessed,” Sood, who acted as a villain in numerous Telugu films, said in a tweet.
True to his word, a new tractor was delivered to the elated farmer Nageswara Rao at his Mahalrajupalle village by Sunday night.
Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, who belongs to Chittoor district, hailed the actor’s gesture.
“Spoke with @sonusood ji and applauded him for his inspiring effort to send a tractor to Nageswara Rao’s family in Chittoor district.
Moved by the plight of the family, I have decided to take care of the education of the two daughters and help them pursue their dreams,” Naidu said in a tweet.
