Netizens slam Sonu Sood for calling tap water healthy

In the video that is doing rounds on social media, Sonu Sood is heard saying, "Boss ye jo paani hai na... duniya ka koi bhi bisleri water... mineral water... iska mukabala nahi kar sakta... ekdum super healthy."

Which translates to, (Boss, this water, is super healthy, no bisleri or mineral water can beat the quality of this water{pointing towards the tap}).

While many people appreciated him for being grounded in his roots, specific social media users called him out for calling tap water "super healthy".

A user said, "This could have been avoided @SonuSood.Water born diseases are real and urban part of India suffers from it. Did you verify the status of the overhead water tank of the station before endorsing this water? If not, should delete this tweet with an apology and put out a rejoinder."

Another user mentioned, Bhai make sure you consult doctor later, look at condition of place from where you are drinking water :)"

"It is not super healthy that is for sure but unfortunately 90% train travellers drink that water..," stated the third user.
