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 avideo 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 ox to the farmer, but later said the family deserved a tractor. "So sending you one. By evening a tractor will beploughing your fields. Stay blessed," Sood, who acted as a villain in numerous Telugu films, said in a tweet.

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 ofbulls 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.
