Popular Telugu lyricist Kulasekhar was sentenced to jail for six months in a theft case on the charges of stealing a silver crown of Lord Hanuman from Tripurasundari Temple in Kakinada of East Godavari district. Cops had booked the lyricist and later produced him in the court. With substantial proofs are against Kulasekhar, Kakinada Vth Additional magistrate Sanyasi Naidu declared him as convicted and pronounced jail term.
Kulasekhar is popular for his lyrics in films like Chitram, 10th Class, Gharshana. He even tested his hand at directing by making a film Prema Lekha Rasa which failed to see the light of the day. This is very sad that a talented person like Kulasekhar stooped down to low level.
