Sonu said, "Sonu For You was conceived by me and my friend, Johnson. Every time someone needs blood on an urgent basis and we share the same on social media, we receive responses from many. So we thought, why not come with an app that serves the same purpose?"

He adds: "Going to a blood bank to search for a certain blood group can take a long time especially in cases of rare blood groups. Every year, 12000 patients in India die due to lack of donated blood. With this app, we want to convey the message that our 20 minutes can save someone's life."

The actor has been expanding relief work in different sectors of society. It started with his work for migrants during lockdown. He also started distribution of e-rickshaws among the underprivileged. Sonu has started online classes, too, for children who cannot afford technology.
