Tanikella Bharani on AVS, others' attitude
Script writer and actor Tanikella Bharani commented on the sudden deaths of almost all well-known Telugu film comedians, like AVS and Dharmavarpu Subramiam. He said that all were natural deaths, while acquiring certain ailments and nothing to do with their lifestyles. Rumours on AVS and others, that they were drunkards, is wrong, he said. AVS had developed liver problem despite being a teetotaller, Bharani said. However, he had been of different attitude and so did not get to know much about him though he was a neighbour, he added.
