Balakrishna couple's kind gesture in 1988Apr 06, 2016 11:41 AM IST
We have seen many celebrities coming forward to help their fans and people in need in the recent past. But it was very rare in 80s and 90s.
An incident that happened in 1988 proves that Balakrishna is a man with a golden heart. India Today, which recently released a special edition on Balayya, threw on light on it.
In 1988, Balakrishna and his wife Vasundhara read a news that a 9 year old girl named Sailaja was suffering from a heart disease and her parents couldn't afford the surgery. They needed Rs.3 lakhs, which was a big amount then. Balakrishna couple came forward to help them. They gave the amount needed for the surgery and made sure that it was successfully done at Railway hospital in Chennai.
Sailaja has been happily married now and is a mother of two. Her parents say that they are grateful to Balakrishna couple.
