How An Incident In KV Reddy Gari Life Became A Scene In Singeetam Gari Movie

 

Living legend and one of the sweetest persons in the Telugu film industry, Singeetam Srinivasa Rao has recently joined Instagram on July 1st. He has dedicated his 1st post to his guru, KV Reddy Garu.


 

 

July 1st also being National Doctors day and the birth anniversary of KV Reddy garu, Singeetam took this as a great opportunity to tell us all an interesting incident connecting the two as told by his guru, KV Reddy garu.

 

Here’s what he said:

July 1st happens to be the birthday of my guru Sri K. V. Reddy garu. Also, it is the #NationalDoctorsDay. An interesting incident connecting the two as told by my guru came to my mind. It was when K.V. Reddy garu was a young student of Presidency College, Madras. He was a gold medalist in Telugu and a favourite of his teacher Sri Lakshminarayana who was residing in a poor house portion in a lane in Triplicane. One day, the teacher got fever and the young K.V. Reddy along with two of his friends wanted to get a doctor. But the boys did not know anybody. The only doctor of whom they had heard was the famous Dr. Rangachari. With boyish courage, they went to his posh house in Poonamalle High Road and waited at the gate. Soon a Rolls Royce car came out and stopped.

Dr. Rangachari peeped out and listened to the boys’ concern for their teacher. He took the address and said he would come there at 12 noon. Exactly on the dot, the big car stopped on the main road and Dr. Rangachari walked up to the small house and examined the teacher. In the meanwhile, the three boys pooled up whatever little money they had to pay the fees. When they offered it, the doctor gave a broad smile. Instead, he gave them three new ten rupee notes for the medicines and said, “Your love for your teacher is the fee you are paying me”.


 

Dr.Rangachari owned a plane to reach patients at distant places of the state quickly and was popularly called the “flying doctor”. His statue still adorns today at the gate of General Hospital, Chennai.

I feel so happy to remember my guru Sri K.V. Reddy garu on his birthday and Dr. Rangachari on this National Doctor’s Day.

This incident inspired me to concieve a similar scene in my film Gammathu Gudacharulu. The movie is available on Youtube.

I wish all the doctors, especially those who are doing an enormous service during this Pandemic, a good health and long healthy life 🙏
