Raj has three daughters. However, the outside world does not know about them. They are known to few in the industry. Their names are Shweta, Divya and Deepti. Shweta and Divya have connections with the film industry. Shweta has sung songs in many movies. Divya is working as an assistant director. Divya worked in the direction department of the movie ‘Khaidi No 150’ starring Megastar Chiranjeevi. Film critic and producer Suresh Kondeti revealed these things.
A condolence meeting was held at the Telugu Film Chamber in Hyderabad on Saturday under the auspices of the Telugu Television and Digital Media Musicians Association to mourn Raj’s death. On this occasion, many musicians shared their past memories with Raj. Raj’s three daughters also participated in the event. They were emotional as they expressed their gratitude for organizing such a grand funeral for their father.
‘He was a great father, a great friend, a great husband. My mother and father were very social. As children, we were never conditioned that you should be like this and do this. You have to learn what life is all about. They said do what you like.. You learn. Today we can survive wherever the three of us are sent. My father gave us that strength. My father didn’t see her every day thinking that the girls should have retreated. He gave us a lot of courage. Even if he is not physically present, his spirit is always with us. Thank you to everyone who organized such a good program in honor of him’ said a daughter.
Actor Shivaji Raja, who participated in the same program, said that Raj told him to go far. He said that when he wanted to become an artist, he went to Raj’s house for the first time. There are many kings but there are few good kings and Raj is one of them. Raj’s father has been in the film industry for a long time. Even though his father was in the film industry, Raj did not have any pride or arrogance. When I thought of doing a serial in my production, I approached Raj to do a song with him. After hearing the story, he said that he will play a role. I said you can’t. No no I will put it myself. He said he will enjoy shooting in East Godavari for 10 days. It is a rickshaw puller character. As he could not ride the rickshaw, Prithvi, who was sitting behind, was brought forward and he went back,’ said Shivaji Raja.
