What is free running? What is parkour? Think of Akshay Kumar chasing Pepsi bottles and going through a dozen stores, where the owner would gladly give him some free bottles.

It is extremely irresponsible to walk freely across rooftops, and it is likely that local guards will be on the lines. I was desperately tented to Parkour around shopping centers in the open air. But it will quickly turn into a fight against the mall guards, who are not the most skilled.Fact is, you can’t run around without eliciting one or multiple of these responses from passers-by:
- Hark! There goes a thief.
- Call the zoo, a monkey escaped.
- Call the hospital, delusional patient escaped.
- Delhi monkey man is here!
