Muttamsetti Rajendra Prasad, brother-in-law of top producer Allu Aravind, passed away in Vijayawada on Wednesday. He is the elder brother of Nirmala Devi, Allu Arjun’s mother.
The actor was spotted at Hyderabad airport as he was leaving for Vijayawada to attend his uncle’s last rites.
According to a source, Rajendra Prasad suffered a massive cardiac arrest and was rushed to the hospital, but it was too late.
Rajendra Prasad was supposed to produce Allu Arjun’s upcoming yet-to-be titled film directed by Sukumar. “He was based in Vijayawada, but came to Hyderabad and recently Allu Aravind made him producer of Allu Arjun’s film,” says a source. “It is unfortunate that Rajendra Prasad passed away. The Allu family wanted to see him as a producer,” the source added. Rajendra Prasad is also related to Andhra Pradesh Minister Avanti Srinivas (Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao).
