Earlier, the 83-year-old shared a newspaper clipping about how the actor-turned-politician had rescued the 45-year-old woman.
With it, he had written in Hindi: “Naukri samajh kar farz nibhana, Sunny beta. God bless you.”

The woman, Veena Bedi, was reportedly sold to a Pakistani man by a travel agent who had conned her into believing that he would help her land a housekeeping job for a salary of Rs 30,000 per month.
Sunny, the BJP MP from Gurdaspr in Punjab, personally intervened after coming to know of the incident. He promptly contacted the ministry of external affairs and, following a swift operation, Bedi was brought back home on Friday.
Sunny was helped in his efforts by two NGOs—one of which is in Kuwait.
