The Tollywood industry woke up to the sad news of the demise of Indira Devi, mother of Superstar Mahesh Babu. Indira Devi breathed her last during the early hours of Wednesday. It is said that Indira Devi is not keeping well for some time and she has been suffering from health-related issues. Indira Devi is the first wife of yesteryear Superstar, Krishna.
If we have to take anything from the media reports, Indira Devi was admitted to a private hospital a few days back for treatment. Unfortunately, the treatment could not save her. It is said that Indira Devi was kept on ventilator support for treatment at the private hospital. Earlier today, she passed away.
This is the second blow the Ghattamaneni family went through this year. Earlier this year, Mahesh Babu’s elder brother Ghattamaneni Ramesh Babu passed away. The prolonged illness claimed his wife. Now Indira Devi is also said to have passed away for the same reason.
Her last rites will be held at the Mahaprasthanam. Before that, her mortal mortals will be placed at the Padmalaya studios for the family members, Tollywood members, and fans to pay their last respects to her. Ghattamaneni fans are mourning her death and sending support to their matinee idol in the tough time.
“Smt. Ghattamaneni Indira Devi, wife of veteran actor Krishna and mother of Mahesh Babu passed away a short while ago. She had been suffering from illness for quite some time now.
