Telegu superstar Ravi Teja's brother Bharath tragically passes away in a car crash

Telegu film actor Ravi Teja's brother Bhupatiraju Bharath Raju died in a road accident late Saturday night, as reported by ANI.

The incident occurred when the car Bharath was travelling in, crashed into a stationary lorry at Kotwalguda on the outskirts of Hyderabad at around 10 pm. The front portion of the car was completely damaged due to the impact of the collision.

Bharath was driving the car alone and was on his way towards Gachibowli from Shamshabad on the Outer Ring Road. The police were unable to identify him till Sunday morning as the accident had left his face disfigured.

His body was then shifted to the Osmania General Hospital for a post-mortem.

“We are yet to find out whether he was under the influence of alcohol or not. But he was speeding, which led to his death,” inspector M Mahesh of the RGI Airport police station told The News Minute. 

The inspector also said that any additional details would only be available after the post-mortem and further investigations are completed.

While Bharat has appeared in numerous Telugu films including Aa Mugguru and Jump Jilani, his brother Ravi Teja is the more famous star. He has appeared in several hit films like Kick 2 and Bengal Tiger.

Bharat's brother Ragu and their actor friend Uttej reached the Osmania General Hospital Mortuary where the postmortem was happening. "I am not in a condition to talk," Uttej told Times of India. Raghu refused to speak with the press.
