Dear sir

It is nice to have some details about her. I heard she became mentally imbalanced but only now I have come to now the reason. So sad. Teluthe reason unknown. Not only Telugu but the whole Indian cine field lost a great beautiful actress nd singer.
The article could have provoded mor about her performance and images from pictures.
I request you to expand the article more with more about her and her family if possible.
I also heard that she got shifted to Kakinada, East Godavari district in Andhraprades. But I am not sure.
