He is likely to be shifted to Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills.

Speaking to The Hindu, Madhapur In-charge DCP M Venkateshwarlu said that the accident took place around 8.30 p.m. near Knowledge City in the IT Corridor. The actor was going towards Gachibowli from Jubilee Hills on his Triumph bike when he lost control and the bike skidded on the road.

The 34-year-old actor suffered injuries on the head, chest, hand and other parts of the body. Mr Venkateshwarlu said that they are verifying the video footage of surveillance cameras in the area to see whether the actor was riding alone or was with a group of bikers.

According to official communication, the actor is under precautionary care in the hospital. “He is absolutely fine and recovering. Nothing to worry. He is under precautionary care in hospital,” it read.

Megastar Chiranjeevi, his brother and actor-cum-politician Pawan Kalyan, producer Allu Aravind, the actor’s younger brother Vaishnav Tej and other family members are rushing to the Medicover Hospital.
