A 24-year old fan of Tollywood star Prabhas ended his life after ‘Radhe Shyam’ opened to mixed reviews.
Identified as Ravi Teja of Andhra Pradesh, he was a die-hard fan of Prabhas. Teja was upset after the film opened to mixed reviews. He locked himself in the room and hung from the ceiling fan. Police rushed to the spot and started an investigation.

Prabhas was last seen in the 2019 film Saaho starring Shradha Kapoor. The actor has been out of the public radar for the last two years due to the pandemic. He will be seen in Prashanth Neel’s `Salaar’. Shruti Haasan will be playing the leading lady in this film. His next with Nag Ashwin has also gone on floors recently. The film has Amitabh Bachchan in a key role and Deepika Padukone playing the leading lady. Both these films are pan-India films and will be released in multiple languages.
