Jr NTR and Nandamuri Kalyanram, the grandsons of the late Sr NT Rama Rao (NTR), embarked on a poignant journey to NTR Gardens in Hyderabad on January 18. The purpose of their visit was to pay homage to their illustrious grandfather, who served as the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and left an indelible mark on the South Indian film industry. The occasion marked the death anniversary of Sr NTR, prompting the grandsons to uphold a cherished tradition of visiting his memorial at NTR Gardens.
Year after year, Jr NTR and Kalyanram make it a point to honor Sr NTR’s memory on this solemn day. Their visit this year, however, took an unexpected turn as fans encircled and mobbed them at the NTR ghat, creating a poignant scene. Despite the overwhelming situation, both grandsons exhibited composure and respect, offering flowers at the memorial with folded hands. The emotional moment was a testament to the enduring impact Sr NTR had on his admirers.
It’s worth noting the familial connection between Jr NTR and Kalyanram, the latter being Jr NTR’s half-brother. Their presence at NTR Gardens not only symbolized a family’s reverence for its patriarch but also highlighted the profound influence Sr NTR continues to have on the hearts of the people, transcending generations in the realm of Telugu cinema and politics.
