    Today 22.01.2014 is the saddest day for Telugu film fraternity and movie goers all over the world. ANR is not confined to Andhra Pradesh as an actor. He is unique and unparalleled in the World Film Industry. His qualities as an actor particularly the depth of communication in melancholous scenes can never be substituted. He has down to earth qualities and pragmatic in living. His departure has thrown everybody irrespective of age groups in to deep depression. I pray the Almighty to Bless his divine soul a peaceful rest and tranquility. I offer my deep condolences to the bereaved family members.
