Mostly into film production, Janakiram, was travelling to Vijayawada in his Tata Safari vehicle, when it rammed an oncoming tractor near Akupamula crossroads on the Hyderabad-Vijayawda highway on Saturday evening.

According to the police, the tractor was coming in the wrong direction.

Telangan chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao offered his condolences to the family members. Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu on hearing the news rushed to Harikrishna’s residence along with his wife Bhuvaneshwari. Janakiram had produced a few films under the NTR Arts banner like Athanokkadu.

After Janakiram’s demise, members of Tollywood expressed their heartfelt condolences to the family

“My heartfelt condolences to Harikrishna garu, Kalyan Ram garu, NTR Jr garu and rest of the family members on the tragic loss of their son”– Pawan Kalyan

“My deepest condolence to Sri Harikrishna garu, Kalyan Ram NTR and Nandamuri family. May his soul rest in peace”– Ramcharan

“Today is a very unfortunate day that a young man has lost his life. I have known the family since when we used to stay in Chennai.

After he came to Hyderabad, Janaki Ram established, NTR Arts, under his grandfather’s name.

At that time, when the producer’s council asked him to get another producer’s approval – ‘You are the first person I’m coming to. Please give me your signature,” he requested.

Today, I am unable to digest that fact that he is no more.

I offer my condolences and request the family to be strong. I pray that Nandamuri family gets the strength they need” – Mohan Babu, actor, producer.
