Telugu font types with .ttf formatted files are NOT displayed under fonts section of Blender 2.8, Any additional plug-in required or is it an issue?
It seems that your font file is missing the file extension. While Windows knows that it's a TrueType font, Blender simply filters files by their file extension. Since this particular file doesn't have one, it isn't displayed in the file browser. Add the
.ttf file extension to the file name and it should work properly.
Alternatively you can temporarily disable the file extension filter in Blender and the file will be visible as well.

The Windows Explorer will list all fonts when looking at
C:\Windows\Fonts, including those that were installed for your user only. Therefore it's necessary to check where the file is actually stored. The easiest way to find the path is by opening the file's properties. With the file selected, right-click on it to open the context menu and select Properties. The General tab contains the Location property, which is the path to the file.
first search font in blender, switch to folder windows/fonts, select the font there, and drag and drop in into the blender-folder; it went to fast but the message was something like font installed below 'user/...`' and that's why blender doesn't find it
