I Have Phobia For Dead Bodies: Ravi Teja
Hyderabad: Actor Ravi Teja broke his silence after a week of his brother Bharat’s demise in car accident at Hyderabad. Many of his friends and industry people are angry with him for his absence at last rites of Bharat. But Ravi Teja came out openly and revealed why he was not present during his brother’s funeral.
According to Ravi Teja, entire family was in deep shock after hearing the news. “My father aged 85 plus has few health issues. My mother collapsed after hearing the news and my father’s mental condition was not in good position to take such a shocking news. I tried my best to console them, meanwhile brother Raghu went to Hospital and completed formalities. We came to know that Bharat’s face was in bad condition and we could not see the distorted face and so gave a miss to the last rites. It is a very difficult pain and we don’t know when parents will be back to normalcy” Ravi Teja said.
“I have a phobia for people who aren’t alive. This is the main reason i wasn’t seen when ever Biggies of industry passed away. After few days I used to go to their house to console their relatives. Even when Sri Hari passed away, I tried my best to see his mortal remains. My heart beat has gone up after reaching his house and I came back without a final glimpse. This is my weakness. How can I see my brother in that condition, I have no guts to face it. We too are human beings even though film actors,” Ravi Teja said.
He rubbished rumours that giving ₹ 1500 to a junior artist to perform final rites. Why will we do it? It was my uncle who did it. We were criticised severely on baseless rumours who created and propagated them to increase their TRPs, Ravi Teja said emotionally.
