The actor’s work wasn’t scaled much in terms of the gesture as in today’s time we can see. Bollywood actor Suniel helped in rescuing a total of 128 sex workers from Mumbai’s Kamathipura. He not helped them in rescuing from Mumbai region but did arrangements for traveling all of them back to Nepal in 1996. Recently, the unpraised story of such a humanitarian work was shared by a video platform after which the video started doing the rounds on the actor’s fan clubs on Twitter. In the video, a woman is heard saying that after the police had cordoned off the area and rescued the sex workers on February 5, 1996, those from Nepal were in limbo because the Nepal government refused to accept them for not having birth certificates or citizenship cards. The woman revealed that Suniel arranged the flight tickets for the sex workers to help them go to Nepal.

As the video went viral, Suniel opened up on it in an interview with an entertainment portal. He stated that his mother-in-law’s NGO helped children, Naresh Goyal’s Jet Airways, Mumbai Police and the Shiv Sena government at that time all played a major role. Meanwhile, the Darbar star has lately been attempting cooking skills and quipped about ‘burning calories.’
