Three ardent fans of Power Star Pawan Kalyan were electrocuted to death while erecting a banner at Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh. Pawan Kalyan is celebrating his birthday today (September 2) and as part of the celebrations, the fans were involved in erecting banners and cut outs. The accident is said to have happened on the eve of Pawan Kalyan's birthday around 8.30 PM. The three deceased have reportedly been identified as Somasekhar (30), Rajendra (32) and Arunachalam (28). The accident also caused severe injuries to three other fans who are admitted to a private hospital in a critical condition.

Following the death, Pawan Kalyan's political party, Jana Sena Party announced a financial aid of Rs 2 lakhs each to the families of the deceased. It can be noted that Pawan Kalyan had requested his fans and followers not to celebrate his birthday this year due to the global pandemic and it is unfortunate that three innocent lives have been killed despite the request.

With that being said, the team of Pawan Kalyan's Vakeel Saab have come forward and announced a donation of Rs 2 Lakhs each to the families of the deceased. Producer Boney Kapoor who is producing Vakeel Saab in association with Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations, shared the team's official statement regarding the accident. Boney Kapoor's note read, "With heavy hearts, we express our deepest condolences to the families of the three fans who unfortunately lost their lives. We, along with millions of others, express our solidarity to their families in this hour of grief. We come forward to announce a financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh each to the families of the deceased. We wish a speedy recovery to the injured. We also request all fans to value their lives and be safe. Team #VakeelSaab".

As we all know, Pawan Kalyan will be making a comeback to cinema after a hiatus with Vakeel Saab which is the official remake of Amitabh Bachchan - Taapsee starrer Pink. After being remade in Tamil with Ajith as Nerkonda Paarvai, Pink is now being remade in Telugu with Pawan Kalyan and we can be sure that the film’s important message will reach the masses in the right way. Directed by Sriram Venu, Vakeel Saab has music scored by S Thaman and features Nivetha Thomas, Anjali and Ananya Nagalla as the three female leads. The film’s motion poster was released this morning for Pawan Kalyan’s birthday and it got a fantastic reception from the fans. For now, check out Boney Kapoor’s official tweet below:
