Sonu captioned the post: "Miss you mom and dad" and wrote: "Today when I sit and attend congratulatory calls from so many people on the success of my new movie, there is one call I miss the most… A call from you both."
Sonu, whose last film Simmba performed exceptionally well at the box office, and has collected over Rs 212 crore within two weeks of its release, added, "Today everything feels incomplete without you. Wish I could sit in a theater with you and watch my film. The applause and whistles would have justified the time I had spent away from you during my struggling days."

I am sorry mom and dad. I miss you every day when I succeed. I miss you every day when I fail. I will still work hard to make you proud. Stay happy wherever you are and I know you are making things happen for me the way they are happening for me now," wrote Sonu Sood.
