Actor Bharat, brother of popular Telegu actor Ravi Teja passed away in a road accident in Hyderabad on Saturday night, the police confirmed.

The incident happened at around 10.10 pm when Bharat was driving alone in his red Skoda sedan from Shamshabad to Gachibowli.

"Bharath died on the spot due to severe head injury. We will register a case against the truck driver", the Times of India quoted RGI Airport inspector M Mahesh as saying. Police couldn't identify the victim until Sunday morning since the face was smashed completely. The inspector added that the lorry had suffered break failure and the driver parked it on the side without using any indicator.

Bharath, who died on the spot, was alone in the vehicle when the mishap occurred, he said. The officials were not sure where Bharath was travelling from or to. He was also an actor and has appeared as a supporting artist in many movies. They are also investigating where Bharat was drunk and driving which caused him death. While Bharath's brother Ragu refused to comment, their actor friend Uttej said, "I am not in a condition to talk". His mortal remains were shifted to Osmania Hospital and will be handed over to the relatives after the postmortem is complete.
