Superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna of Telugu is under criticism when it was discovered that he shoved actress Anjali off stage in a video. The incident happened during a pre-release party for Anjali’s next film, “Gangs of Godavari,” which also features Neha Shetty and Vishwak Sen. The moment Balakrishna pushes Anjali after it appears she couldn’t hear him is captured in the video, which has gone viral on websites like Reddit.

The Incident and Reaction

Balakrishna, the main guest, can be seen shoving Anjali out of the way in the popular video. Neha Shetty, Anjali’s co-star, seemed obviously stunned, despite the fact that Anjali handled it well and laughed it off. It is unknown what exactly Balakrishna and Anjali spoke to each other before to the shove.

Anjali did not react badly on stage despite being well-known for her performance-focused parts in well-known Tamil and Telugu films like “Angaadi Theru,” “Engaeyum Eppothum,” “Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu,” and “Geethanjali.” Netizens, however, quickly chastised Balakrishna for his actions. “It’s crazy how so many people give him a free pass by saying sht like ‘it’s just balayya,'” a person replied. “A gifted actress treated like sht,” another person said.

Balakrishna’s Remarks on His Son’s Career

Balakrishna garnered media attention at the same event for remarks he made regarding his son Mokshagna’s prospects in the film business. He said that instead of following in his footsteps, he preferred Mokshagna to forge his own way. “Even though my fans would be disappointed with my choice, I don’t want him to be inspired by me,” he stated. Fans were reassured by Balakrishna that although he would encourage his son’s debut, he preferred Mokshagna to carve out his own path in the business.

Additionally, he expressed his confidence in taking on younger actors such as Adivi Sesh and Siddhu Jonnalagadda. Balakrishna said, “I am in no mood to give up,” demonstrating his willingness to keep up with the younger performers.

Current Projects and Future Plans

In recent times, Balakrishna has become increasingly well-known in Telugu cinema thanks to successes like “Akhanda” and “Veerasimha Reddy.” Additionally, he intends to work with filmmaker Boyapati Srinu on “Akhanda 2,” the sequel.

His public image has definitely been damaged by the events at the “Gangs of Godavari” event, which has caused strong criticism from both fans and the wider public. This incident emphasizes the significance of upholding professionalism and respect both on and off stage as conversations about conduct and respect in the film business gain traction.

Due to Balakrishna’s conduct at the “Gangs of Godavari” event, there has been a lot of backlash, and the topic of respect and behavior in the entertainment business is still being discussed. Although Anjali’s composure under duress was admirable, the episode should serve as a reminder of the importance of manners and professionalism, particularly from seasoned performers like Balakrishna.
