It was a different Balakrishna one got to see the other day. At the 9th anniversary of the gym Addlife which is a sister concern of the Basavatarakam Cancer Hospital, he was in an unusually cheerful mood.

As a chairperson, he heard the patients speak about their experiences and said integrated medicine always helps a person in a holistic manner.

He said, “We must treat our body like a temple and never abuse it. Even before KBR park was completely ready I would jump over the gate at 4.30a.m. for the morning walk. I was warned that there could be snakes, but I said if our intention is noble nothing can harm us.”
