Ravi Tej’s brother Bharath (46) was killed in a car accident last night in Hyderabad.Film industry was shocked to know his sudden death.
Bharath’s body was cremated at Maha Prasthanam in Jubliee Hills on Sunday after noon.
Film celebrities like Ali and relatives were present at his funeral but Ravi Teja and his father didn’t come.
Ravi Teja skipping his brother’s funeral has surprised everyone. Ravi Teja provides all financial assistance to all his family members.
Though the deceased Bharath had played roles in many movies, his earnings were low. So, Ravi Teja used to provide him monthly allowance.
Even when Bharath landed in controversies and was booked for his rash behavior, it was Ravi Teja who bailed him out.
But Ravi Teja skipped the funeral. The reason given by Ravi Tej’as team is that the actor didn’t want to see his brother’s battered body.
“He can’t control himself if he sees his brother’s body that is battered beyond recognition. Hence, he didn’t come,” Ravi Teja’s staff said.
But this reason and explanation didn’t go well with the industry folk. Due to his alcoholism, Bharath gave many troubles to Ravi Teja and spoiled the actor’s image.
So, he has reportedly been keeping away distance from his brother from long time.
