The Acharya actor even broke down as he offered condolence to Mahesh Babu and his family during this tough time.
Krishna was hospitalized in Hyderabad on 13th November after suffering a cardiac arrest. It is a difficult time for Mahesh Babu as he lost his elder brother Ramesh Babu, his mother Indira Devi, and now his father Krishna within a year. The actor is believed to have been very close with his father Krishna and considers him the biggest inspiration to become an actor. As a child artist, he has shared screen space with his father in around 25 movies including Needa, Anna Thammudu, Gudachari 117, Poratam to name a few.
The Ghattamaneni family has also released an official press statement to share the sad news, “It is with the deepest grief that we inform you of the passing of our dearest Krishna garu. He was a superstar in so many ways beyond the movie screen… guided by love, humility, and compassion. He will live on through his work, through us, and the many lives he influenced. He loved us more than anything and we will miss him more with each passing day… but as they say, goodbyes aren’t forever. Until we meet again…”
