For unusual reasons, Ravi Teja didn't attend the funeral of his brother nor did he even come to pay respects to his mortal remains.
Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja's younger brother and actor Bharath died in a road mishap last night when he was returning from Shamshabad towards Guchibowli after celebrating a party with friends in hotel Novatel.
Ravi Teja did not go to see the body as well. Night patrolling police noticed the accident post midnight and alerted the local police.
The accident occurred on Outer Ring road near Shamshabad on Saturday.
"Bharath died on the spot due to severe head injury". Police were not able to identify the victim until today morning.
Ravi Teja Brother Bharath Died In Road Accident
A police official said empty bottles of alcohol were found in the vehicle but it was not known if liquor had been consumed by him before driving.
Ravi Teja, who is known to be extremely close to his family, skipped the funeral as it would have only aggravated his grief.
The body has been sent to Osmania General Hopsital for a post-mortem operation and a case has been registered under section 304 A of IPC for investigation. Ravi Teja's family hail from Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh. He has also acted in movies but he was not as successful as his brother Ravi Teja.
Bharat's funeral was attended, however, by some of his biggest well-wishers in the industry, among them Uttej and Ali.
