Popular actor Tammareddy Chalapathi Rao (79) died of heart attack on Saturday night. His body was kept at his son Ravi Babu’s house in MLA Colony.
The body will be moved to Maha Prasthanam at 3 pm and kept in a freezer. On the arrival of his daughter, who is staying in America, the last rites will be performed in Maha Prasthanam on Wednesday.
Chalapathi Rao was born on May 8, 1944 in Balliparru, Krishna district. Chalapathi Rao acted in more than 1500 films. He left his own mark in the characters of villain and supporting roles.
He is so close to NTR and acted with three generations of Nandamuri family. His last film is Nagarjuna’s Bangarraju earlier this year.
Kaikala Satyanarayana passed away only two days ago and now Kaikala Satyanarayana is no more. Telugu film industry is dealt with big blows and it is hard to believe a generation of Legends is no more.
We express our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and fans.
