Mumbai: Coming out in support of the students showing apprehensions of attending the offline board exams for the class 10 and 12, the actor had showed concerns amidst the rising covid cases in the country.
Sood shared a video supporting the ‘cancel CBSE board exams 2021’ movement. He is heard saying, “On the behalf of students, I want to put in a request. CBSE and board exams are going to be held offline, I do not think the students are ready to sit for the exams amid the prevailing circumstances.” He gave examples of countries like Saudi Arabia and Mexico where exams were cancelled despite low number of Covid-19 cases.
He captioned the tweet, “I request everyone to support students who are forced to appear for offline board exams in these tough times. With the number of cases rising to 145k a day I feel there should be an internal assessment method to promote them rather than risking so many lives. #cancelboardexam2021 (sic).”
