Known for her Telangana accent and emotional portrayals, Telangana Sakuntala is a household name in Tollywood. Unfortunately she succumbed to a heart stroke last night and breathed her last at the age of 63. Late on Friday night, Sakuntala suffered a stroke and collapsed at her home in Kompally, Hyderabad. Though she was rushed to nearby Narayana Hrudayalam hospital in Suraram, doctors declared her brought dead.
Shot to fame with her roles in movies like Nuvvu Nenu, Okkadu and Gangotri, Telangana Sakuntala did villainy, sentiment, comedy and many versatile roles on silver screen. She used to be stage artist prior to entering movies. Her death is certainly a big loss for Telugu film industry and Telangana movie artistes.
