Tollywood actor Sai Dharam Tej, nephew of megastar Chiranjeevi, was injured in a road accident in Hyderabad on the evening of Friday, September 10. The actor suffered a fracture in his collarbone in the mishap, doctors said. The incident took place around 7.30 pm in Hyderabad’s Madhapur when the actor was riding his sports bike. CCTV footage showed that the actor’s bike suddenly slipped on the road, and the actor was dragged for a couple of metres. The actor was wearing a helmet, which minimised the injury to his head.
Initially, the actor was shifted to Medicover hospital, where he was intubated and put on assisted respiration. Later, he was shifted to Apollo Hospitals in Jubilee Hills.
Apollo Hospitals in a statement on Friday night said, “As of now he is medically stable. There are no major injuries to the brain, spine and major organs, based on preliminary investigation.
