Thank you for all you have done for me. Rest now rest… In this life and if I already have another, you will always be my ‘Annaya.’ I love you forever and always and always, ” Mahesh Baboonote read.
Later, Namrata Shirodkar also spoke of how Ramesh Babu was “the true pillar of our family”. “Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. Annaya was the true pillar of our family.

“I am shocked to hear that actor, producer Sri Ghatamaneni Ramesh Babu has passed away. My deepest sympathy to their family. The famous actors continued Sri Krishna’s acting legacy and then got into film production and achieved victories. Made a heavy film with brother Sri Mahesh Babu as ‘Arjun’. This is a difficult time for Sri Krishna garu to sink the Putrashokan. I pray God to comfort him and his family. I wish Sri Ramesh Babu’s soul may rest in peace (sic),” Pawan Kalyan expressed through facebook.
