Balakrishna Nandamuri is a senior politician and a star hero in Telugu states. There is no one that does not know him and if someone is saying that they do not know him, it is nothing but a joke! A similar thing happened with Prajas Santhi party president KA Paul recently at a TV interview. Answering the question of a journalist, KA Paul said that he does not know who Balakrishna Nandamuri is. Even she tried to give him hints and clues, but KA Paul behaved as if he does not know who he is.
Now, Naga Babu, the popular actor also made similar comments. In a recent media interaction, he said that he does not know who Balakrishna is. The media person tried to give him the hints too but Naga Babu denied knowing Balakrishna but in a sarcastic manner, he added that he knows Balayya, a senior artist in the film industry.
When the media people asked about Balakrishna Nandamuri, Naga Babu wantedly diverted the topic telling about a senior artist Balayya. Everyone came to the conclusion that he is wantedly doing it.
There is a backstory to it.
As there were elections in the Telangana state, TDP has been criticizing Pawan Kalyan and Jana Sena party. Not just the senior cadre but almost everyone including Balakrishna have started making comments on Pawan in a negative manner. Irked with this, he has reacted to it in his style by telling that he does not know who Balakrishna is.
The media even asked about his political entry and Naga Babu cleared off the rumor saying that he would reject an MLA seat if Pawan offers him. He made it clear that he would like to work under Pawan Kalyan as Janasena party worker.
