Amitabh Bachchan is one of the Legends of Indian Cinema. He is a globally respected and is an idealised icon. Amitabh’s craze is not only existent in Bollywood but also his fever had spread across the other Indian language movie industries. Addressing such an inspirational idol, Nandamuri Balakrishna questioned, What did Amitabh Bachchan do by entering into politics?
This question had shook the T Town due to the intensity of the way in which Balayya addressed the Legend in an interview. Although, the intension of Balakrishna might be different from what he actually said. However, the way he had framed his statements and the way they were expressed were taken offensively by Amitabh’s fans.
Speculations determine, Balayya opened up about Sr. Bachchan with anger, for a reason. Couple of months ago, Balakrishna had met Amitabh Bachchan on the sets of Sarkar 3 and Balayya with all the respect had bent down to touch the Legend’s feet. The plot of this meeting was to request Amitabh Bachchan, to co star opposite Balakrishna in a crucial role, for his upcoming film, Raithu.
Amitabh Bachchan unfortunately rejected this offer, which made situations even worse. Balakrishna apparently told Raithu director, Krishna Vamsi that he would do the film only if Amitabh Bachchan is casted on board. Also, there might be a tinge of anger in Balayya because Amitabh Bachchan had signed Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, opposite Chiranjeevi but declined his movie venture.
It’s Ok Balayya………Take A Chill Pill.
