Krishnam Raju’s mortal remains were kept for public viewing at his residence. Several noted personalities like Mahesh Babu, Pawan Kalyan, Ram Charan, Allu Arjun, NTR, Chandrababu Naidu, KTR and others visited Raju’s house.
Krishnam Raju is one of the most loved and respected personalities in Telugu cinema. The entire industry is mourning the demise of Raju who carried a “Peddaayana” image. He was known for his warm hospitality and dynamism.
The final rites will be performed today with state honours. The mortal remains will be cremated at Krishnam Raju’s recently acquired agricultural land in Moinabad. He bought this property to build a farmhouse and move there, but he has sadly passed away before the completion of the construction.
