The trouble began when Vinod Royal started to praise his idol at an organ donation camp in Kolar on Sunday.

The praises did not go down too well with Sunil, an NTR follower who got into an ugly fight with him. The duo took the fight outside the camp and at night Sunil's friend Akshay Kumar, another NTR fan stabbed him in the chest. Royal was taken to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival.

Reports suggest that the police arrested Kumar on Monday after registering a murder case.

The actor-turned-politician visited the victim's family to express his condolences at their residence in Tirupati on Thursday. Grateful for the support Vinod's sister tied a rakhi on the actor's wrist.

The victim, an active member of Kalyan's political party Jana Sena, was all set to go to the US in a week for his further studies.

Speaking against fandom of this nature, the actor has said to The Times of India, "Competition is always good in the industry, when it is healthy. I condemn this kind of activities that take place in the name of hero-worship."
