Giri Babu is one of the few Actors in the Industry who had worked with five generation stars. He recalled the experience working with Sr NTR, 'NTR is very sincere and dedicated actor. After completion of his shot, He used to ask Me - 'Em Giri Bagunda'? That shows his greatness. In Mythology, NTR has done all the roles except Narada. NTR and ANR are like two eyes of the Industry. Nobody could match them even after 100 years'.
The Veteran Actor feels bad about the hardships faced by NTR in the last phase of his career. He doesn't hesitate to say family members were responsible for what NTR went through that phase.
Giri Babu defended Balakrishna who kept making headlines by slapping fans publicly. 'If you irritate, Anybody would get angry. Even I lose my temper in such a situation. Unfair to say Balayya will slap everyone,' he opined.
After being in TDP during NTR's regime, Giri Babu moved close to YSR in 2009. Thereafter, He extended support to Jaganmohan Reddy. Giri Babu feels Jagan is a good leader just alike NTR and YSR. He predicts Yuva Neta will continue in power for the next 10-15 years. The Senior Actor doesn't see TDP regaining lost glory anytime soon. 'Only Jr NTR can bail out TDP from crisis. If he wasn't allowed into the party, People will send those Individuals out of it,' he cautioned.
