Model turned actor Sonu Sood over the years now is not only known for his works in various films and songs, I mean, despite impressing everyone with his acting skills in the past few years he has turned out to be more than just a hero. His humanitarian efforts and selfless help during the pandemic times made him a real-life hero.
Today, Sonu is loved for both his reel and real life works but what if we tell you that there was a time when he had his plans of quitting acting! Mind you! It wasn’t because he was short of work rather the reason is even more heart-breaking. Also Read : When Kapil Sharma Was Slapped And Kicked Out From The Sets Of ‘Gadar : Ek Prem Katha’

So, it was the turmoil in his personal life owing to the sad demise of actor’s mother back in the year 2007 when he was shooting for Aneez Bazmee’s superhit, ‘Singh is Kinng’. Not being able to overcome the loss, the actor struggled a lot while shooting and used to sit and cry on the sets. Also Read : Remember ‘Saun Di Jhadi’ Model Reshma Bombaywala Lezinska?

In an interview, Sonu had revealed that his mother had come to the sets of ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ at ND Studios Karjat on October 1 and told him that it would change his life. “She left on Oct 4. My younger sister was to get married on Oct 16, for which I was to go home on Oct 14, but on Oct 13, I got a call informing me that my mom had died in her sleep. I was shivering and did not know how to book my tickets”.
It was then he wanted to quit the industry, but his father being an emotional support to him reminded him of his mother's dream for him. Thus, he went on to shoot ‘Singh Is Kinng’ in Australia but every day, he’d just sit and cry in a corner and then go and do comedy.

That’s so excruciating!
Kudos to the actor who never let such commotion in his personal life affect his performance in the film.
Sonu was seen playing the role of gangster Lakhan, ‘Lucky Singh’ where Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif were scene as the lead cast. The film was released in 2008, less than a year after his mother’s passing away.
Many of you might not be knowing but Sonu’s mother was involved in charity work who also inspired him to do the same. Every year as a mark of tribute, thus, Sonu leaves everything and returns to Punjab to organise langar on Oct 13. He has even made a trust to help college students.

Sonu confesses the void that his mother has left can never be fulfilled but today he gets to meet his mother’s students from all over the world for which she never took the money. “If a student did not come to her class, she would get me to pick up my scooter and go with her to that child's house in the village around Moga to ensure he came out to study as the farmers would suddenly stop sending their children.”, he had recalled in the interview.
Well, it is a sheer respect towards his parents that Sonu has established a production house, ‘Shakti Sagar Productions’, after his father’s name who had left for his heavenly abode in February 2016.
