Actor and philanthropist Sonu Sood has been making headlines for a long time because of his humanitarian works. Recently the actor created a buzz on social media once again but this time it was for completely different reasons. Netizens went wild when a report claiming that Sonu had gifted his elder son Ishaan a Rs 3 crore high-end luxury car on Father’s Day as he recently turned 18.
However, Sonu completely refutes the report. “There is no truth to this. I haven’t bought a car for my son. The car was brought to our home for a trial. We went on a test run. But that’s it. We didn’t buy the car,’ he said. Sonu wondered where the Father’s Day angle came from. He added, “Why would I give my son a car on Father’s Day? Shouldn’t he be giving me something? After all, it’s my day!’
He added, ‘Jokes aside, the best Father’s Day gift my two sons can give me is to spend the day with me. I hardly have any time for them. Now that they’re growing up, they have their own life. So spending the day together is a luxury that I think I’ve earned myself.”
However Sonu was gratified by some of the comments on response to the report on his luxury-car indulgence. “I think 90 percent of the comments below the reports were favourable. They said, if I had purchased a car it’s about time I did something for myself and my family. This positivity and unquestioning love that I’ve got during these months when I have reached out to people with a helping hand, are the best gift I’ve received in my life. No matter how much the skeptics try to influence public opinion against me, my good work won’t be doubted by my well-wishers out there.” Addressing the issue of people raising questions about the sources of his charitable resources he said “Let them ask the questions. I have the answers for those I am answerable to. The rest I don’t care about. The doubters can’t deter me from my work. I will continue to help the needy,’ He concluded.
