Actor Sushanth’s father, Satyabhushan Rao passed away today morning in the wee hours. It is learnt that he has been on prolonged illness and has been on medical treatment for a while now.
Anumolu Satyabhushan Rao is married to Naga Susheela, who is the sister of Akkineni Nagarjuna. Satyabhushan Rao is survived by his wife Naga Susheela, son Sushanth and daughter Sahitya. Satyabhushan’s father is a renowned producer, Anumolu Subba Rao, in Telugu films.
Reports are emerging that Akkineni Nagarjuna has cancelled the pre-release event of Rarandoi Veduka Chudam, which was scheduled to happen on Thursday evening in Hyderabad. Nagarjuna reached the residence of his sister and is with the family in this moment of bereavement. Akkineni family is a united family and are closely knit. Members of this family have extreme support for each other and stand by each other during tough times.
In January 2014, Nagarjuna’s father and legendary actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao passed away. He passed away right before the release of their film Manam, which involved all the family members of Akkineni. Nagarjuna, Naga Chaitanya and Nageswara Rao acted together in the film and that was the last film of ANR, as he is fondly called.
Sushanth was last seen in Aatadukundam Raa which released in 2016. The film did not fare well as expected by the makers. Aatadukundam Raa opened to good collections but could not maintain the momentum.
We pray for the soul of the departed and strength to Sushanth’s family.
