On Wednesday, Sonu Sood said, “This is a rare honour. A UN recognition is very special. I have done whatever little I have done in my own humble way for my fellow countrymen without any expectations. However, to be recognised and awarded feels good. I fully support the UNDP in its endeavours to achieve SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) by 2030. Planet Earth and mankind will greatly benefit from the implementation of these goals.” The award was presented to him via a virtual ceremony.
Earlier, Priyanka Chopra was also awarded by the UN body for her philanthropic work. Sonu Sood has joined the likes of Angelina Jolie, David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio, Emma Watson, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, Antonio Banderas, Nicole Kidman.”
On a related note, Priyanka Chopra on Wednesday took to Instagram to share a short clip featuring the two contrasting stills from her memoir Unfinished.
