Veteran Telugu actor Krishnam Raju has been admitted to a Hyderabad hospital after he complained of difficulty in breathing and has been kept under observation. According to a source, the 76-year-old was admitted to Care Hospital on Monday. The actor is the uncle of Baahubali actor Prabhas.

“He complained of breathlessness when he was rushed to the hospital. Although nothing is serious, he has been kept under observation,” said the source. Raju’s nephew, actor Prabhas, upon learning about his uncle’s condition, rushed to the hospital and spent nearly two hours with him.

The source added that Raju will be kept under observation on Tuesday. “By the end of the day, we can expect some update from the doctors,” he said. With over 100 films to his credit, Raju shaped the career of Prabhas, who is very close to him.
