Nandamuri Balakrishna had finally showed his anger on Chiranjeevi and Amitabh Bachchan. Earlier, It was known that Balayya had personally met Amitabh on the sets of RGV’s Sarkar and narrated a story line of Rythu along with director Krishna Vamsi and requested for the dates of Amitabh. However, Big B was not interested in signing for this film and ignored Balakrishna’s request.
After the announcement of Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, everyone came to know that Amitabh Bachchan would also be playing an important character in this film. This didn’t go well with Balakrishna as there is always a silent rivalry between Nanadmuri and Chiranjeevi families in Tollywood. Recently at the press event when Balayya was questioned about the same, he diplomatically blamed Chiranjeevi and Amitabh Bachchan not from acting perspective but from politics perspective.
“Politics is all about grooming, what the hell did Amitabh Bachchan do by entering politics? He became politician by defeating great political leader like Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna, who would have done good to the society if he won in the election. After winning the election, only thing Amitabh Bachchan has done is posing for photographs and signing autographs in parliament. Even Chiranjeevi came in to politics and shut down his shop quickly. Politics is all about sustainability. Our family is different and our breed is different. Not everyone can sustain like us” Fumed Balayya.
