Megastar Chiranjeevi expressed shock over the death of renowned film editor Gowtham Raju. He extended his condolences to the family members of the 68-year-old on social media.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Chiranjeevi wrote, “It is unfortunate to lose an editor like Gowtham Raju. He was a gentle person but his editing was sharp. A man of few words, his skill in editing was limitless. A soft-spoken man, his work always contained speed. From Chattaniki Kallu Levu to Khaidi no. 150, he has worked for many of my films as an editor. His passing is a personal loss for me and the film industry. I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family.”
Meanwhile, Gowtham Raju, who was suffering from illness for some time, breathed his last at his residence in Hyderabad on Tuesday late night. He worked as an editor for more than 1000 films. He had worked in many films in Hindi, Tamil, and Kannada, besides Telugu.
