Actor Jaya Prakash Reddy passes away


Popular Telugu actor Jaya Prakash Reddy passed away on Tuesday morning at his residence in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. The 74-year-old breathed his last following a cardiac arrest.

Hailing from Allagadda in Kurnool district, Jaya Prakash Reddy was immensely popular for villainy roles with his trademark Rayalaseema dialect and from ‘Kabaddi Kabaddi’ in 2003; he gradually started to entertain the audience with his impeccable comedy.

Though he started his illustrious career way back in 1988, it was films like Preminchukundam Raa, Samarasimha Reddy, Narasimha Naidu and Chennakesava Reddy that cemented his place as a deadly antagonist.

Jaya Prakash Reddy is survived by his wife Radha and two sons, Niranjan and Dushyanth. Asianet Online
