“Why would I gift my son on Father’s Day?” Sood asks

Sood says time with two sons best Father’s Day gift
Sood also said that the best gift he could receive from his sons is they spend the day with me as he doesn’t have much time for them during a phase when they are growing up.
“Jokes aside, the best Father’s Day gift my two sons can give me is to spend the day with me. I hardly have any time for them. Now that they’re growing up, they have their own life. So, spending the day together is a luxury that I think I’ve earned myself.”
“Positivity & love from needy the best gift I’ve received”: Sonu Sood
The Dabangg actor also shared how he was happy with the netizens’ response to the false news of him buying a luxurious car. He said how 90% of the comments he received were favourable.

“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.”
“I have answers for those I’m answerable to”: Sood shuts people down
Sood here was referring to the recent queries people had on the resources for his charitable causes. To this, Sood also added-
“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.”
