Two days prior to the Independence Day, Sonu Sood took to Twitter, urging every Indian to commemorate this special occasion in a unique way. He wrote, “On this Independence Day, hoist a flag, pay for some needy’s education. Adopt a patient, pay for someone’s medicine. Only then you can say that you are a proud Indian. Jai Hind!”
His words, reflecting empathy and compassion, breathe a fresh and positive perspective into the meaning of freedom. At Jay-Ho! The Jay Kumar Show, we wholeheartedly support his noble cause and urge the public to join Sonu Sood in his mission to aid the underprivileged.
Meanwhile, as we celebrate Independence Day, if you’re considering watching movies that capture the essence of freedom and sacrifice, take a moment to explore the works of Sonu Sood. His performance in the role of Bhagat Singh brought history to life. And don’t forget about his involvement in the thought-provoking film “Paltan.”
Sonu Sood made his Bollywood debut with the 2002 film “Shaheed-E-Azam.” Directed by Sukumar Nair, this film showcased a young Sonu Sood essaying the role of the legendary freedom fighter Bhagat Singh. Beyond the cinematic brilliance, what adds an intriguing layer to this portrayal is Sonu Sood’s personal connection to the character.
Interestingly, during a candid conversation on the #NoFilterNeha show, Sonu Sood shared that his grandfather had been a contemporary of Bhagat Singh at National College, Lahore. Growing up, he heard many stories of Bhagat Singh’s life and legacy.
Sonu Sood’s inclination towards roles that capture historical events continued with his portrayal in JP Dutta’s war film “Paltan.” The movie is based on Nathula military clash on the Sikkim border in 1967, an episode that had remained relatively unexplored on the cinematic canvas. For Sonu, the significance of portraying such stories was not lost. He remarked, “Any incident of history occurs twice, once it is an actual incident and once it is told.”
Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero
Sonu Sood essayed the role of Lt. Col Shah Nawaz Khan in the 2004 movie “Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose: The Forgotten Hero.” This portrayal shows his commitment to resurrecting characters that history might overlook. Lt. Col Shah Nawaz Khan’s association with Subhash Chandra Bose and the Indian National Army was a pivotal chapter in the struggle for Independence.
