Sonu Soodâ€™s heart still beats the loudest for the film fraternity.Â â€œOf course, every human life matters. And if I had my way, I wouldnâ€™t allow a single life to be lost. Having said that, I do belong first and foremost to the film fraternity. And it causes me a lot of pain to see so many daily-wage earners from our industry suffering and jobless. We are doing our best for them. COVID-19 has claimed the livelihoods of so many, and our industry wasnâ€™t spared either.â€
Sonu is thrilled with the lockdown being lifted. â€œ[Iâ€™m] so happy that the shooting is resuming. But letâ€™s not get carried away. Letâ€™s stick to the guidelines that will be put out. The number of people on the set should not exceed the Covid guideline and I think we should avoid intimate scenes, atleast for now.â€
Sonu also has a request for all the film federation and associations that work for the benefit of the thousands of workers in the industry. â€œThere should be a fund for medical emergencies and for those workers who retire, prematurely or otherwise. Who would have imagined that a catastrophe like COVID-19 would fall on us so suddenly? We should learn a lesson from this experience. There should always be some funds laid aside for such emergencies.â€
Sonu has a suggestion. â€œAll those actors, producers and directors who have prospered from the film industry, why donâ€™t they contribute regularly to welfare fund for daily wage-earners in the film industry? Thatâ€™s the only way to survive a crisis.Â Even if it is a bit late, why canâ€™t the empowered financially privileged section of the industry look out for those in our fraternity whoÂ are vulnerable to sudden financialÂ crises?â€
