Sr Artist Thanks Boyapati For Re-energising Him

One of the senior-most character artist in Tollywood right now is none other than Chalapathi Rao who has touched an age of 76 years. In the recent times, he is not seen in films much except Vinaya Vidheya Rama and the actor has a bitter thing to share about this.

During an interview, Chalapathi Rao shared that he met with an accident while filming for a movie of Sunil in Kerala. As he fell from a bus while getting down, he got ribs broken and leg fractured. Explaing that it took him a year to recover from the accident, the character artist thanked Boyapati Sreenu for helping him recover fast. So how does that happen?

When Rao is unable to move out without the support of a wheelchair, Boyapati insisted him to come to shoot of Vinaya Vidheya Rama in Bangkok such that the character artist will recover quickly from the illness as being on film set energises any actor. That way, by sitting in a wheelchair, Chalapathi did the role of 'Babai' in the Ram Charan starrer.

"I've to thank Boyapati for giving me that offer and forcing me to come all the way to Bangkok for shooting. They arranged a special lift for me to get into a plane here in Hyderabad and also in Bangkok. That way I've recovered six months ahead than I should" says Chalapathi, adding that he will next feature in Boyapati-Balayya movie in a lengthy role.
