Nandamuri Balakrishna made a strange statement while speaking at the event, and he faced the heat from all sides. Balakrishna said: “My father Sr NTR had some contemporaries; aa Ranga Rao, Akkineni, Thokkineni, and some others”. Netizens faulted Balayya Babu for taking a dig at such a legendary person like Late Akkineni Nageswar Rao. Now Naga Chaitanya and Akhil reacted to Balakrishna’ controversial comments with a strong note.
The note read: “Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao garu, Akkineni Nageswara Rao garu and S.V Ranga Rao garu’s creative contributions have been the pride and pillars of Telugu Cinema. Disrespecting them is degrading ourselves.”
