On September 28, 2022, the paps spotted Mahesh Babu arriving for his mother, Indira Devi's last rites, and he looked heartbroken. It is indeed a huge loss for the actor, and no amount of condolence can make him feel better. We also got hold of some pictures where the actor can be seen consoling his daughter, Sitara, who was sitting on his lap and crying.

The couple looked devastated, and they can be seen bidding the final goodbye to the departed soul with a heavy heart. In the pictures, the doting son was seen putting a garland on his late mother's coffin as the priest chanted some mantras and showered rose petals.
Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu’s sister, Manjula Ghattamaneni took to her IG handle and paid a heartbreaking tribute to their mother, late Indira Devi. Manjula shared a picture of her late mother and penned an emotional note to thank her first Guru, her mother for protecting and influencing her. Showering her mother with love, the doting daughter mentioned that she is going to miss her mom's presence every day. An excerpt from her note can be read as:
“Dear Mom, You are my first Guru, my foundation and my heart. Your love has been my protection.You are the biggest influence in my life. My mom knew only giving, giving, giving all through her life and did not ask anything for herself. There has not been a single day in our childhood where we missed her presence. She took care of all our needs in her usual selfless loving way."
May God give strength to Mahesh Babu and his family to overcome their huge loss!
