So far so good! But there are some who do not like what Sonu is doing. They feel that he has political motives and could soon emerge as a rival to them. Their suspicion is based on the praise lavished on him by Maharashtra governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari. Many NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena leaders see this as his link to the BJP. They suspect that he would play an important role in the BJP scheme of things. To add to their suspicion, in the last elections, Sonu Sood has campaigned for a BJP MLA candidate. Though it was out of his friendship with the candidate that he had campaigned, the Shiv Sena, NCP, Congress combine sees this as a pro-BJP gesture.
So they have started criticizing the actor for being pro-BJP and said that he was doing all this social service with a view to join the BJP. On his part, however, Sonu Sood is saying that he has no political ambitions. But, the suspicion continues.
