It is a couple of days that sound is not working as a normal user but if logging in as root everything works fine. Is there any fix for this?

You did not give us relevant informations yet, so we can't help you. if the sounds runs as root, i imagine that your config of pulseaudio has been damaged. compare the files in " .config/pulse/" as root and as user.

Thanks. This is what I did and as per answer I removed the .pulse directory and it started working again.

Simply deleting the .pulse directory in the home of the user solved the issue.
