After a video of Nandamuri Balakrishna slapping his fan who was attempting a selfie with the actor-politician went viral, a lot is being said about his temper and the way he deals with mob. And couple of days later, the audio of Balakrishna’s upcoming film Paisa Vasool was launched and director of the film, Puri Jagannadh, brought the topic up during his speech. Puri Jagannadh said during his speech that Balakrishna has a love-story with his fans and fans enjoy when he behaves in such fashion.
At the audio launch, Puri Jagannadh said, “Balayya hits back only when common sense goes amiss. Remember that Balayya and his fans have this connection. When he hits his fans, it’s a love story! So don’t take it seriously.” This brought a lot of backlash towards Puri Jagannadh and netizens did not leave any stone unturned to troll him for supporting Balakrishna. Netizens lashed out at Puri Jagannadh for supporting such outrageous behaviour and was even being compared to his mentor RGV. Like RGV, Puri Jagan also has lost his mental balance, stated few posts on social media.
Balakrishna has been in the news for his behaviour towards his fans and assistant, and the recent incident was another incident. Before this incident, Balakrishna was seen slapping one of his assistants during the official launch of his next film after Paisa Vasool which is being directed by KS Ravi Kumar. Balakrishna has received a lot of backlash for his behaviour towards fans and common people but things haven’t changed despite the outrage.
