“From the humble beginnings of a truck driver in Vijayawada who slept with truck tires under your bed to taking care of your family, you have always had the heart of a king. You showed us that wealth does not come from what is in your pocket, but from what is in your heart. Thank you for dreaming big for your children and making them what they are today. Rest in peace Tatagaru (sic), ”he tweeted.
