Sitara Ghattamaneni, the dearest granddaughter of Mahesh Babu's mother Indira Devi, was seen crying inconsolably at her grandmother's death. She was sitting on the lap of her father Mahesh Babu, weeping, as he tried to hold back his tears and comfort his daughter. Mahesh Babu offered tissues to Sitara as he himself was in terrible pain.
Superstar Krishna also was seen in the video clip which is doing the rounds on Twitter, where he clearly looked shaken. He wore a mask and was grief-stricken. He lost his second wife Vijaya Nirmala in the year 2019, with whom he shared a great bond. The superstar, ever since, stopped making any public appearances and restricted his interactions with friends, well-wishers, and fans. He was living in his house along with Vijaya Nirmala's son, actor VK Naresh. However, the entire Ghattamaneni clan always catches up every weekend to spend time together. Recently, on the last birthday of Indira Devi, Krishna and other family members went together and celebrated the event.
