Sonu Sood joins Angelina Jolie and Emma Watson in receiving UNDP honour

Bollywood actor Sonu Sood is known as one of the most generous stars in the industry who never hesitates to help others.

The actor is now being lauded for his philanthropic endeavors as he receives the highly esteemed SDG Special Humanitarian Action Award by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

Sood received the accolade through a virtual ceremony earlier this week, on Monday. He has now joined the likes of Angelina Jolie, Emma Watson, Liam Neeson, Cate Blanchett, Antonio Banderas, Nicole Kidman, David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio and Priyanka Chopra.

After receiving the award, 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 recognized and awarded feels good. I fully support the UNDP in its endeavours to achieve the SDGs by 2030. Planet Earth and mankind will greatly benefit from the implementation of these goals,” he said.
