A 43-year-old nurse Vinaya Kumari from Andhra Pradesh, got a new lease of life after undergoing a complicated brain surgery at a multi-specialty hospital in Guntur.
However, what was unique about the surgery was that not only was Vinaya Kumari conscious during the operation, she was also enjoying the film, Baahubali 2.
"The patient was diagnosed with a tumour in her left sensory cortex which needed to be removed. But the surgery requires to be conducted while the patient is awake, so even though drugged, she was wide awake throughout the procedure. In fact she was humming the dandalayya song during the surgery," neurosurgeon Srinivas Reddy, who lead the team that conducted the surgery, told the Times of India.
In fact, a video of the nurse humming to the song during the ongoing surgery, has since gone viral on social media.
The doctor added that Baahubali was the patient's favourite film, but the surgery was over before the movie finished.
After the surgery, Vinaya Kumari told reporters, "The surgery lasted for about an hour and half, but I hoped it would go on a bit longer, so that I could see the entire film."

This also comes three months after Bengaluru-based musician Abhishek Prasad played a guitar while his brain was being operated on, to correct a nerve disorder, in Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain Hospital.
Director SS Rajamouli attained global fame as the creator of the Baahubali universe -- which went on to become India's biggest blockbuster with worldwide earnings of over Rs 900 crore ($137 million). It took about four years to helm the film.
Starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as the male protagonists, the film's story is about the battle for the ownership of an ancient kingdom between two brothers. The story is woven together in two parts with dance, music, emotion and drama.
It also features Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Tamannaah Bhatia and Sathyaraj.
The first part, Baahubali: The Beginning, came out in 2015 and the second Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was released earlier this year.
