New Delhi: Actor Sonu Sood, who has been attacked by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut for helping migrants and showing the state government in poor light called on Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray at his Mumbai resident”Matoshree”.

“This evening Sonu Sood met up with CM Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray ji along with Minister Aslam Shaikh and me. Better together, stronger together to assist as many people through as many people. Good to have met a good soul to work for the people together,” he tweeted.

Mr Sood, after meeting Mr Thackeray, downplayed Mr Raut’s sharp criticism and said every party across the country has been supporting him.

“They are also supporting it and it’s not about any particular party or anything… we have to support all the people who are suffering… every party from Kashmir to Kanya Kumari has supported me…,” he said, denying any misunderstanding with the state government.

Sanjay Raut, in his weekly column in the party’s mouthpiece Saamna, had written that Mr Sood would promote any party if paid well.

“Sood is an actor whose profession is to deliver dialogues scripted by someone else and make a living out of it. There are many people like Sood who would promote any political party if paid well,” he said.
