Speaking about the vaccination drive, Sushanta said, “After I shared about my family getting vaccinated on my YouTube channel to spread the message that it is safe and we should all get vaccinated, I started receiving messages from my followers and well-wishers enquiring about information on how to get vaccinated and realized that many were facing problems in getting vaccinated. That is when I spoke with my family and friends to put together this drive to help my brothers and sisters from the Northeast.”
“Having stayed in Punjab and Chandigarh for the last 20 years has given me certain advantages to organize such drive with the help of people I know here and the support of my family. I believe this is a time when we should all step up to help one another in whatever way we can to fight this pandemic. As someone blessed with so much love and support from the Northeast region, this is my way of saying thank you to everyone,” he further added.
The vaccination drive was successfully executed keeping all the SOPs in mind at the actor’s residential complex area in Chandigarh along with an expert team of doctors and medical professionals from the Punjab Health Department. A total of 90+ people had contacted the actor out of which 40 people from Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Arunachal and Assam between the age of 18-45 were vaccinated as part of the first phase.
