Naga Chaitanya and Akhil Akkineni react to Balakrishna’s disrespectful remarks on Akkineni Nageswara Rao
Nandamuri Balakrishna who was recently seen in the movie Veera Simha Reddy took a jab at Akkineni Nageswara Rao and SV Ranga Rao at the success meet of his movie. The actor while thanking his team members at the meet said, “My father Sr NTR had some contemporaries, aa Ranga Rao (referring to SV Ranga Rao), Akkineni, Thokkineni, and some others.”
This statement irked the grandsons of Akkineni Nageswara Rao- Naga Chaitanya and Akhil Akkineni. To respond to such remarks they took their Twitter account today and said that disrespecting the work of the legendary actor is to degrade themselves. “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,” Naga Chaitanya posted on his Twitter.
Akhil Akkineni also posted the same note on his handle. Meanwhile, fans have also started trolling Balakrishna for his statements but so far Nagarjuna is yet to respond to this controversy.
