Movie and television director Giridhar, a resident of Sagar Nagar in Visakhapatnam, has been suffering from joint pains for some time. He visited Orthopedic doctor DR BVRN Varma at Manipal Hospitals. On doctor’s advice, he consumed tablets bought from pharmacy located in hospital premises. To his surprise, he found tablets were exerting from his faeces. Giridhar consulted doctor but he advised him not to visit him again if he has doubts on his treatment. When he reported to Assistant Director of Drugs Control Administration, his suggestion to Giridhar was to use tablets of different batch.
