Mumbai: Actor Sonu Sood announced full scholarships to less-privileged students for higher education after her late mother’s name on Saturday.
Sonu posted a photo of himself on Instagram, pledging support to complete college education of students. He wrote, “I believe, financial challenges should not stop anyone from reaching their full potential.”
Sonu Sood has emerged as a volunteer leader since the pandemic infused lockdown started in India.
