Sonu Sood Gifts Tractor To Andhra Pradesh Farmer After Video Of His Plight Goes Viral


Reel life villain Sonu Sood turned real-life hero once again, this time by gifting a tractor on Sunday to a farmer in a remote village in Andhra Pradesh to help him till the land. The actor came up with the gift after coming through a video clip on Twitter wherein a tomato farmer in Madanapalle in Chittoor district was seen ploughing the land with his two daughters carrying the yoke on their shoulders.

In his instant reaction, Sood promised a pair of an ox to the farmer but later said the family deserved a tractor. “So sending you one. By evening a tractor will be ploughing your fields. Stay blessed,” Sood, who acted as a villain in numerous Telugu films, said in a tweet.



True to his word, a new tractor was delivered to the elated farmer Nageswara Rao at his Mahalrajupalle village bySunday night. Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, who belongs to Chittoor district, hailed the actor. “Spoke with @sonusood ji and applauded him for his inspiring effort to send a tractor to Nageswara Rao’s family in Chittoor district. Moved by the plight of the family, I have decided to take care of the education of the two daughters and help them pursue their dreams,” Naidu said in a tweet. Rao’s elder daughter completed her Intermediate while the second one passed Class 10.

Rao used to run a tea stall in Madanapalle beforecoronavirus left him out of business. He returned to his native Mahalrajupalle village to takeup agriculture once again. Given his penury, he could not hire either a pair of bulls or a tractor to till the land, when his daughters volunteered to help him on the chores. Their plight went viral on social media following which the actor stepped in with help.
