Nandamuri Harikrishna, the son of former Andhra Pradesh chief minister NT Rama Rao, died in a road accident in Telangana on Wednesday morning. A former politician and an actor, the 61-year-old was father to Telugu actors Jr NTR and Kalyan Ram. Members of the political and film fraternity from the state paid tribute to Harikrishna while many expressed shock at his sudden demise.
His son Jr NTR and Kalyan Ram rushed to the hospital where N Harikrishna was taken after the accident. Videos of the actor arriving at the hospital and a picture of Jr NTR with his brother Kalyan Ram was shared on social media. In the picture, the actor is seen trying to wipe away his tears, with his brother standing by his side.
After the news of Harikrishna’s death, fans have been sharing throwback videos of when Jr NTR had spoken about the bond he shared with his father. These videos were from the launch event of his movie Nannaku Prematho that released in 2016. In an emotional speech, Jr NTR had said, “My father has always taught the three of us that you can fall down, you can even reach the cusp of death, but always depend upon yourself to be successful. He never taught us to live under his shadows or to use our grandfather’s (NTR) name to come up in life. He always told us to live like ourselves and promised that his blessings would always be with us.”
He had also added, “If something were to happen to my father, I can’t imagine what that would be like.”
The 61-year-old Harikrishna met with an accident at 4.30 am while he was travelling from Hyderabad to Nellore for a wedding. The accident occurred at Nalgonda district, Telangana, on the Annaparthi road near Narketpally. After suffering severe injuries, he was taken to Kamineni Hospitals where he breathed his last.
Harikrishna, son of TDP founder and actor NT Rama Rao was a popular child actor who later worked alongside his father in the political party. He was also the brother-in-law of Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu and a member of the politburo of the Telugu Desam Party.
