Mahesh Babu’s father passes away at 79

Telugu superstar Krishna, passed away at Continental Hospitals. He breathed his last at 4 am today. (November 15). He was 79. Krishna was hospitalised late on Sunday night by his family after he complained of breathing difficulties. His condition was critical.

The legend of Telugu cinema made his debut with small roles in films, including Kula Gothralu(1962), Padandi Mundhuku, and Paruvu Prathishta. He bagged his first movie as a lead in 1965 and the film was  Thene Manasulu. The movie was a blockbuster after which the actor was offered many roles.

Apart from films, the Simhasanam actor was also interested in politics. In 1989, he was even elected as an MP from Eluru from the Congress party. He quit active politics after the death of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991.

The actor who made his last onscreen appearance in the 2016 film Sri Sri, has been awarded several accolades including Padma Bhushan, NTR National Award, and a doctorate from Andhra University.

For the unversed, Krishna Ghattamaneni lost both his current and ex-wives, Vijaya Nirmala, and Indira Devi, and his elder son Ramesh Babu within a span of two years. While Vijaya Nirmala died on June 27, 2019, after suffering a heart attack, Indira Devi passed away recently on September 28, succumbing to a prolonged illness and Ramesh Babu passed away due to a liver-related ailment on January 8, 2022. These tragic incidents affected the actor a lot.
