Sonu Sood, who is often applauded for his philanthropist work, faced wrath of netizens after reports of him buying Rs 3 crore luxury car for his elder son Ishaan on the occasion of Father’s Day surfaced across social media. However, the actor refuted the report and claimed that the ‘car was brought to our home for a trail’.
While speaking to SpotboyE.com, “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.”
Wondering where the Father’s Day angle popped up from, the actor said, “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!”
Sood then expressed that the best Father’s Day gift for him he can give to his two sons is to spend his time with them as he hardly gives any time to them. ‘So spending the day together is a luxury that I think I’ve earned myself,’ said Sonu Sood.
Sonu feels humbled by the response of netizens towards the news of him buying the car. He said, “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.”
When asked about people questioning his sources of charitable resources, Sonu is unperturbed. “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 said.
Sonu Sood has been helping people with medical emergencies during the second wave of coronavirus.
