Several other actors turned to social media to voice their shock and outrage. However, it is also worth pointing out that Sudheer is not to be mistaken for the Telugu filmmaker of the same name.
Sudheer Varma, who made his film debut in 2013 with ‘Swamy Ra Ra,’ rose to prominence with the Vara Mullapudi-directed ‘Kundanapu Bomma’ in 2016. Sudhakar and Sudheer Varma portrayed heroes. Although Sudheer Varma’s performance in this film was praised, he did not have many more opportunities in the film industry. Early evidence suggests that the actor’s excessive behaviour in Visakhapatnam was motivated by personal issues.
Legends such as Kaikala Satyanarayana, Superstar Ghattamaneni Krishna, Rebel star Krishnam Raju, Chalapathi Rao, Ramesh Babu, M Balayya, director Sarath, Rama Rao Tatineni, ‘Aa Naluguru’ Madan, and lyricist Kandikonda died in 2022.
