Accident puts brakes on NTR Jr. campaign

SAD TWIST: NTR Jr. being wheeled into KIMS Hospital in Hyderabad on Friday.

HYDERABAD: Telugu Desam Party’s star election campaigner NTR Jr. was rendered temporarily out of action as he sustained injuries in a road accident in the early hours of Friday while on his way back to the city from Khammam after addressing a public meeting.

Doctors at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) in Secunderabad where he was admitted said he would require two weeks to completely recover from the injuries. In effect, the third generation star of the Nandamuri clan will be out of the TDP’s campaign which he has aggressively conducted for two weeks with a clever mix of words and histrionics.

The 26-year-old Telugu film actor was travelling in a Tata Safari along with friends. As they reached Mothe near Suryapet in Nalgonda district, the driver swerved to one side to avoid running over a dog at a bend, about 130 km from the State capital. The SUV somersaulted and ended in a roadside ditch causing injuries to the movie star and others.

Another film actor, Rajiv Kanakala, and others travelling along with NTR Jr. rushed him to a hospital in Suryapet and, after first aid, shifted him to KIMS where doctors conducted tests, including a CT scan and an MRI before keeping him under observation for two days.

NTR Jr. sustained bleeding injuries on his forehead, rear side of the head, face and hands, besides several bruises. Doctors said there was slight bleeding in the lungs and a hairline fracture of a rib on the right side.

KIMS Managing Director B. Bhaskar Rao said a compression was observed in the D4, D5 and D6 section of the vertebra.

Dr. Rao said the actor could wear a tight corset and attend to daily chores, if he so wished after some days.

However, depending on the speed of his recovery, NTR Jr. may resume the campaign which will end on April 21.
