In recent nearly 15 popular Telugu artists were passed away. Following the death of this artist, the members of Telugu filmdom have decided to perform the Mruthyunjaya Homam.
Actor-producer Murali Mohan, the president of Movies Artistes Association (MAA) said, “Many think the industry is cursed. When I consulted some priests, they suggested the idea of this homam. It’s believed to ward off evil and ensures harmony. It’s for the goodwill of the entire Telugu industry”.
Well-known Telugu celebrities such as Chakri, Uday Kiran, MS Narayanan, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Dharmavarapu Subramaniam, Sri Hari, Telangana Shakuntala, D Rama Naidu and Ahuti Prasad passed away in the last two years.
He further added, “According to the priests, the homam is meant to stop unnatural and untimely deaths”.
On March 23, 24 and 25 the homam will be performed here.
