Sonu Sood Hospital in Hyderabad: Six locations of Sonu Sood were raided by the Income Tax Department last week, after which questions were raised on the funds that came to his foundation. Sonu Sood has also been accused of tax evasion, which the actor denied. Recently, in an interview with Bombay Times, Sonu Sood talked about the proceedings of the Income Tax Department and the plan to open a hospital in Hyderabad.
On the allegation of tax evasion of about Rs 18 crore, Sonu Sood said that any foundation has a time limit of one year to use its funds. If the funds are not utilized in that year, you can use them in the next year. These are the rules. I had listed this foundation a few months back on the close of the second wave of COVID-19. Otherwise, during the first wave, when I started helping migrants, I had people who offered to book buses for migrants. We were not collecting money then.

The actor further said that I started collecting funds only in the last four-five months. As per the rules, I have more than seven months left to use these funds. I am not wasting people’s and my hard-earned money. Of the brand endorsements I earn, 25 per cent and sometimes 100 per cent goes directly to my foundation. If the brand donates money, I advertise them for free. The funds in the foundation are also my funds, which I have contributed.
After this, Sonu Sood again talked about his plan to open a hospital in Hyderabad. Sonu said that many of them were treated in Hyderabad for all the people we have for help. The infrastructure of some hospitals in Hyderabad is at a different level. In the coming 50 years, the plan is that if Sonu Sood lives or not, people should get free treatment through this charitable hospital.
He said that my dreams are significant, and I am on a mission. In the last few days, I have already spent Rs 2 crore on the hospital project. It will be equipped with state-of-the-art, free of cost, best quality medical facilities for the needy. We are already working on an orphanage and school as well. All the projects are on their work.
