HYDERABAD: Two days after the death of renowned Tollywood music director Chakri, his wife Sravani approached the State Human Rights Commission on Wednesday seeking support in matters relating to her husband’s property.
Forty-year-old Chakri died here on December 15 due to heart attack.
It is not yet known if her petition has been admitted. Officials said an acknowledgment of her petition would be given only on Thursday.
“In a joint family there will always be clashes. To him his family meant everything, which is why I had adjusted throughout for him. Now, without him, my future is in jeopardy. So I consulted the SHRC for my self-protection. People have accused me of killing him but I spoke to the SHRC only as a mere precaution,” Sravani told mediapersons here on Wednesday.
“I had left my parents to live with him. As for his family, they will not support me. They have not said it openly but their behaviour and gestures strongly indicate that I won’t get any support from them in future,” she said.
According to her, she had actually not wanted to raise the matter till the completion of the 11-day mourning period but her concerns forced her to approach the commission. “He had distributed all his property to many people as a charity. But, he had several gold ornaments which his family parents and other members of the family claim as theirs. As his wife, even I have certain rights, which is why I have consulted HRC,” she explained and hoped that the family would not misunderstand her intentions.
Born as Chakradhar Gilla, Chakri debuted as music director in 2000 and became popular for his tunes in films Idiot, Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammayi, Chakram, Devadasu, Simha and Jai Bolo Telangana. He was a recipient of Nandi Award for his musical score for ‘Simha’.
