Rao, the son of veteran actor Rao Gopal Rao, was shooting a critical action sequence for Allu Arjun"s film, when this accident happened. The reports suggest that he was performing an action sequence with Kelly Dorji, who hit him during the sequence and Rao fell at a distance.
Unfortunately, a huge torch also fell near his head at that time and he had a miraculous escape. Had the torch fallen few inches away, then it would have hit the actor"s head and there would have been no chances of his survival, said a source. Luckily, Rao survived with minor injuries and everyone on the sets considers it as a rebirth.
Rao plays a 'shishya" of Prakash Raj in this film, which gave him 'punar janm". The incident happened a few weeks ago and the actor is doing well now.
