With Sonu Sood being seen as a messiah who has reached out to migrants, poor students, etc. during the pandemic, Spice Jet has dedicated livery for him.
A SpiceJet Boeing 737 aircraft was recently wrapped in a special livery which includes an image of the actor along with a line that reads, ‘A salute to the saviour Sonu Sood’.
The actor has repatriated more than 2.5 lakh Indians last year. As part of this collaboration, more than 1500 Indian students stranded in Kyrgyzstan and hundreds of Indian nationals stuck in Russia, Uzbekistan, Manila and Almaty, among other countries, were repatriated to India.
Sonu has reacted to the gesture. “To be honest, I am quite taken aback by his huge honour. This is a really sweet and touching gesture on Spice Jet’s part and I am overwhelmed with such a lovely present. I hope that I can keep making everyone proud with my work. I am also thankful to Spice Jet for their effort of bringing back so many Indians from different parts of the world safely to their homeland during the pandemic.”
