Even though this is a funny incident, it clearly shows how positively Sonu Sood image has grown in recent times.

Where are they getting these medicines, which are available in such scarce quantity in the country and how are they able to supply these drugs which are being distributed to the state governments only by the Central Government? Are they sure of whether their supply was illegal and if the medicines were not spurious? The court asked during the hearing on a clutch of petitions filed against Sonu Sood.
