The sudden death of a famous actor, writer, journalist, and speaker Raavi Kondala Rao has shocked me. Raavi Kondala Rao has a long association with the Telugu film industry. I have acted in many films with Raavi Kondala Rao Garu since the early days when I was introduced as a hero.
Ravi Kondala Rao has played many key roles, especially in films like Chantabbai and Mantrigari Viyyankudu which came in our combination. With the death of Raavi Kondala Rao Gari, a versatile intellectual, the film industry lost not only a good actor but also a great writer, journalist, and speaker. Raavi Kondala Rao's death is a great loss to the drama and cultural sectors as well. Ravi Kondala Rao and his wife Radha Kumari have acted together in many films.
It was nice to have both of them come as Parvathi Parameswarulu and offer their congratulations and blessings at any celebration in the film industry. With the death of Raavi Kondala Rao, the film industry seems to have lost a big direction. I extend my deepest sympathies to their family members and sincerely wish peace to his soul.
