Nandamuri Balakrishna celebrated his 61st birthday yesterday and spoke to the media on the occasion. When asked about Jr. NTR’s entry into politics, and his opinion on it, Balakrishna’s comments on the same are receiving a lot of criticism and have turned out to be rather shocking for fans and audiences alike.
Balakrishna said that NTR’s entry into politics could be positive and negative, which wouldn’t be good for TDP. He went on to say that not everyone with the name of NTR, working in films, can excel in politics. Balakrishna’s response was almost antagonist, shocking people belonging to all sections.
While his statements continue to shock everyone, members of the TDP are trying to do damage control, saying that Balakrishna had to be diplomatic, considering that his daughter is married to Lokesh, and any statement in favour of NTR may not sit well with either Lokesh or Chandrababu. Despite their continued damage control, it looks like Balakrishna has done irreparable damage.
