Harikrishna Nandamuri, the fourth son of actor, director, producer, founder of Telugu Desam Party and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh NT Rama Rao passed away this morning after a tragic accident on NH65 in Nalgonda, Telangana. 


The accident took place at around 6:30 am today when Nandamuri was on his way to attend a wedding in Kavali in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh. The actor was reportedly driving his Toyota Fortuner, at 150 km per hour as he wanted to reach the venue by 9 am. However, the car hit a divider on Nalgonda Highway near Narkatpally and flipped over, landing on its side while hitting another car. Three people in the car with him survived with injuries. 


The actor was rushed to the nearby hospital in a critical condition. He succumbed to head injuries at around 7:30 am.


Harikrishna is a big name in Telugu film industry right now. Kalyan Ram, the elder son of Harikrishna, is also an actor. The sudden death of Jr NTR's father Nandamuri has come as a rude shock for Tollywood celebs Mahesh Babu, Allu Arjun, Nagarjuna, Nani, Varun Tej, Rakul Preet and many others.
