Telugu actor Nandamuri Taraka Ratna collapsed and fainted during a political event on Friday. The incident occurred during Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leader Nara Lokesh’s ‘Yuva Galam’ (Youth Voice) padayatra near Kuppam in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh.
According to reports, a large number of TDP workers surged forward after Lokesh came out of a place of worship, causing a stampede-like situation. Taraka Ratna, who was in attendance, suddenly collapsed and passed out. He was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.
The actor’s team has not yet released an official statement regarding his health, but according to the ABP Desam report, Taraka Ratna reportedly underwent several tests at the hospital and was later shifted to a hospital in Bangalore. Taraka Ratna is the grandson of TDP founder and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. T. Rama Rao, and is the cousin of Junior NTR, Kalyan Ram, and Lokesh.
Taraka Ratna, who made his acting debut in 2002 and has since appeared in a number of films and web series, is reportedly keen to contest next year’s Assembly elections.
