Superstar Krishna was also the father-in-law of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader Jay Galla. The veteran actor had five children– Ramesh Babu, Mahesh Babu, Padmavathi, Manjula, and Priyadarshini. He joined the Congress and became an MP in the 1980s but quit politics after former PM Rajiv Gandhi’s death.
2022 has not been great for Mahesh Babu as he lost his mother Indira Devi in September. His brother Ramesh Babu also died in January this year.
He predominantly worked in Telugu films and his prominent films include Thene Manasulu, Pandanti Kapuram, Alluri Seetharama Raju, Simhasanam, Gudachari 116, James Bond 777, Mugguru Kodukulu, and Anna Thammudu.
