The departed former Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MP and Actor Nandamuri Harikrishna had a big heart to help people in need. Though he lived in prosperity, he did not forget even a second about the social need of downtrodden and distressed people.
The classic example was his recent letter to his fans about his upcoming birthday celebrations. #NandamuriHarikrishna 's last letter to his fans asking them not to celebrate his 62th Birthday on the coming September 2nd, instead of spending money on bouquets n garlands, use the money for #KeralaFloodRelief n rain affected areas in #AndhraPradesh. Harikrishna was born on September 2, 1956 in Nimmakuru of Andhra Pradesh. Look at the copy of letter below which was written sent to his fans by Nandamuri Harikrishna:
As a politician also, he was different. HariKrishna Nandamuri was the first person to resign his MP post in the name of bifurcation of the Andhra state.
The sudden loss of Nandamuri Harikrishna was a shock for his fans and people of Andhra Pradesh. He died on Wednesday morning as the car in which he was travelling overturned on Andanki-Narketpally National Highway near Anneparthy in Nalgonda district in the wee hours on Wednesday. It is rumoured that over speeding was the reason for the terrible car crash. His car was allegedly running at a speed more than 100km/hour. Two others also were travelling with Harikrishna in the vehicle. It is said that the car hit a road divider before it turned turtle. The serious head injuries led to Harikrishna’s sudden death. Though he was rushed to the nearby Kamineni hospital in Narketpalli, the doctors could not save him and he breathed his last around 7.30 am.
He is the brother in-law of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu’s and the son of TDP Founder NT Rama Rao. The accident happened when he was proceeding to Kavali in Nellore district to attend a marriage of his fan. Nadamuri Harikrishna is now more famous as the father of Telugu Superstar Jr NTR. Jrnior NTR’s real name is Taraka Ram, but later he was renamed as NTR Junior by his grandfather, N T Rama Rao himself.
The former MP was himself driving the vehicle when the accident occurred.
From his first marriage to Lakshmi he has two sons, Janaki Ram and Kalyan Ram and a daughter Suhasini. Both Kalyan Ram and Jr. NTR are well noted Tollywood actors in the Telugu industry. Harikrishna’s son Janakiram died in a road accident in 2014.
