    Change “Lazarus Pudi” to “Pudi Lazarus.” Telugu names have the family name go first. You might want to add a parenthetical phrase to Abraham saying “born Pudi Abraham.”

    Wiki sources says his dad was indeed Telugu. Please add this. It’s the third most spoken language in India.

    His father was from Jinnuru, India, so it’s likely he was Telugu.
