Readers may recall that a few days ago, we had reported about an ‘army’ of actor Sonu Sood’s die-hard fans, followers and ‘worshippers’ had come together at Tukoji Rao Pawar Stadium in Devas (Madhya Pradesh). The reason for which they all had come together was to make a portrait of their idol Sonu Sood. The ‘USP’ o f this portrait was that this particular portrait was unlike any other portrait which was made up of paints, pencils or ink. Rather, the uniqueness about this portrait was that it was made up of… RICE! Well, the story doesn’t end there at all. The people who made this portrait had come up with yet another unique idea of the rice (which was used for to make the portrait) was distributed to the households who are in dire need and don't have access to basic facilities. The NGO named ‘Helping Hands’ had partnered with Sonu Sood’s NGO SCF (Sood Charity Foundation) in this unique feat.

OTTplay brings to you ‘ALL EXCLUSIVE’ photographs of the grand event. For the uninitiated, the unique and never-before event took place on a massive scale in Devas (Madhya Pradesh). And the area utilized to make the ‘rice-portrait’ was not less than an acre of land!
Readers may recall that, a few days ago, Sonu Sood had spoken exclusively to OTTplay regarding the unique event. He had said, “It’s truly very encouraging to see the seamless love and affection that the fans shower upon. There have been many dedications in the past. But, this one ranks amongst as one that is truly special and extremely close to the heart. Who could ever think of making a gigantic portrait with rice and then, distributing the same to the poor and needy. The portrait has been made up of 2500 kgs of rice, which will be later donated to the needy. There were many people from Dewas (Madhya Pradesh) who came forward to donate the rice as they know that it will be going for a social, selfless and a noble cause”.
The ‘Dabangg’ actor also spoke about one of the unique highlights of the event, which was about the health and hygiene of all the volunteers who had participated in the grand event. Speaking about the same, Sonu Sood had said, “What is important here that I may point it is that, the volunteers of SCF had carefully collected the rice and kept it in a secured place. Each and every volunteer who had participated in this mammoth event strictly followed all the protocols of health and hygiene. The volunteers also ensured that the rice that they got were of good quality. The reason being, everyone knew that the rice which will be collected from here will be eventually distributed to the poor and needy. And that is why the volunteers were extremely careful about the quality and the hygiene of the rice which were being collected. The entire floor was neatly cleaned and thoroughly washed because that is where the rice was to be kept. The event was done in effective collaboration with the NGO called Helping Hands’. The whole thing was initiated by the artist named Bhavesh Namdev and his entire team”.
