Anushka kills Ravi Teja Dupe
This is the shooting scene of Ravi Teja latest movie which is having its shooting on the river banks of Godavari at Purushottam Patnam near Rajamundry. The scene is that Anushka has to push Ravi Teja and Sunil look alikes or dupes into the river. Anushka pushed them, till then it was ok.
Sunil dupe whose name was Ramesh swam back to the shore but Ravi Teja dupe whose name was Mahendra didn’t turn up. He was washed out by Godavari river and his body was not found. Here started problem. The whole unit left the shooting spot without making much noise.
But the locals didn’t forget the scene that easily. They complained at the local police station and filed a case against Anushka for murdering a guy. The case was accepted by the Police after a lot of protest from the local people.
The story of the unit people is different. They say that Anushka asked both the dupes whether they new swimming or not before the shot. Both said yes but in reality only Sunil dupe knew swimming but not Ravi Teja dupe.
This new movie has Ravi Teja and Anushka in the lead and is being directed by Uday Shankar and is being produced by Suresh Productions banner.
Ravi Teja dupe Mahendra shifted with his family from Rajasthan a few years back and is a very poor person. The loss which his family is suffering is irreversible. We convey deepest condolences to the family of Mahender.
