Actor Sonu Sood, who earned much praise and appreciation for helping migrants during the lockdown, is now being applauded for his response to a Twitter user who offered him roti cooked over an earthen stove. When a fan shared an image of a chapati being cooked on a chulha for him, the Bollywood actor asked the person whether he could also get some pickles and dal to go with the chapatis.
Dal-roti is a popular meal in northern India, especially Punjab. The fan shared the image in response to a tweet from Sonu Sood in which the actor denied reports that he would be in Punjab for a function. Sonu Sood said he is “busy shooting in Mumbai” for the next few days.
“Sir jee, this hot chapati being cooked on a chulha for you,” the user wrote along with the picture.
Sonu Sood quote tweeted the post, saying, “Brother, can I get some pickles and dal as well?”

One user said this is the ”real India” and “a 5-star hotel cannot match (the taste of rotis made on a) chulha.”
