Venkatesh Nayak, who was a die hard fan of Prabhas lost his life due to electrocution while placing banners at Mahabubnagr district of Telangana
The Baahubali actor Prabhas is gearing up for his much-awaited movie of the year Saaho featuring Shraddha Kapoor as the lead actress. Whenever a superstar’s film releases, it is fans who make all possible efforts to make it superhit. When it comes to Prabhas, who is considered to be as demi-gods in South India, his fans begin the festivities a week before the film hit the theatres. They erect banners, cut-out, do ‘pala abhishekham’ and whatnot.
Sometimes fans of superstar go the extra mile and take risks. While doing the same, an unfortunate incident happened at Mahabubnagr district of Telangana, when a fan of Prabhas was erecting banner of his film Saaho.
According to the latest reports, the person named Venkatesh Nayak lost his life due to electrocution. The report stated that Nayak was 22-year-old and he was die-hard fan of Prabhas and is a resident of Mahabubnagar city.
Days before Saaho’s release, Nayak was reportedly placing Prabhas’ banner in the local Tirumala Theater. Unfortunately, he got electrocuted by the pole which was nearby and soon, he collapsed on to the ground. He was rushed to the nearby hospital but he was declared dead on arrival. May his soul rest in peace and hopefully, fans avoid doing these risky moves in the name of love towards their favourite hero.
Notably, Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho is just a day away from its global release. Prabhas’ film will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and Malayalam on August 30.
Directed by Sujeeth and is bankrolled by UV creations, Saaho also features Neil Nitin Mukesh, Mandira Bedi, Jackie Shroff and Chunky Pandey in the pivotal roles.
