Jr NTR survived a major crash in March 2009, when his car turned a turtle and crashed into a tree as he was returning to Hyderabad from Khammam district. Jr NTR is said to have suffered injuries to his head, temples, shoulders and elbows. Suma Kanakala’s actor and husband Rajeev Kanakala and actor Srinivasa Reddy accompanied Taarak on the trip. Tragically, Jr NTR’s father Harikrishna and brother Janaki Ram passed away in a road accident. That’s why Jr NTR ensures a special disclaimer about road safety in his movies.
