The incident took place when the actor was travelling to his farmhouse in Shamshabad after shooting for his upcoming Telugu film "Rudhramadevi 3D" reported the Hindu. The actor's driver stopped the vehicle as the signal turned red near Hi-Tec City flyover, when the RTC rammed into the rear portion of the car.
