Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja, today, attended the 13th day ceremonies of his younger brother Bharath in Hyderabad. Bharath was killed in a road accident recently which shattered Ravi Teja and his family, according to the actor.
Attending the ceremonies, Ravi Teja said that many media outlets carried news around why he and his family did not attend the final riots of his brother Bharath and wrote articles without verifying facts. Ravi Teja also said that he is not against any media house or them carrying the news about his brother’s demise, but humbly requested them all to verify the facts before writing any piece on them.
Speaking to the media contingent present at the venue, Ravi Teja said,” We, as a family, were shattered when we got to know about his death. The reason my family and I did not attend the final rites is because I wanted the last memories of my brother to be the happy moments with him but not these kinds of sad ones. That is the reason my younger brother Raghu and my uncle were present here taking care of the final rites.”
“Few websites and channels including videos online mentioned few reasons for we not attending the funeral which deeply hurt me and my family. When there is a bereavement in a family, the pain that the family goes through in unimaginable and on top of that, reading things like this in the media will really hurt. So, I humbly request the media to verify facts, get to the truth and then publish any articles that you wish to,” said Ravi Teja.
