“I am in good hands. And I have good health. Nobody has to worry about this. Please don’t bother to call me to find out how I am. I’m perfectly alright excepting cold and fever. Even the fever has subsided. In two days, I will be discharged and I will be home. Thanks for the concern. Lots of people are calling me. I could not attend so many calls,” he had said.
On September 7, Balasubrahmanyam’s son, SP Charan had given the update that the legendary singer had tested Covid-19 negative.
