Popular Telugu star Ravi Teja and most of his family did not attend the funeral of his brother Bharath, according to reports.

Ravi Teja gave a miss to the funeral though he was present in Hyderabad on Sunday. The actor did not come to see the body of his brother either.

The only family member who was seen at the funeral was Ravi Teja’s younger brother Raghu.  

Bharat, 46, is a character artist and has starred in Telugu films such as "Dhee" and "Ready" among others.

The accident occurred on Outer Ring road near Shamshabad on Saturday. “Bharat was driving a Red Skoda, which rammed into the back of a parked truck. Due to the high speed collision, he died on the spot," a police source told IANS.

A case has been registered against the truck driver as he didn't take proper precautions in parking the vehicle after it broke down. Police haven't ruled out drunken driving as the cause of the accident.
