The veteran actor said that he is a close friend of Chiranjeevi and he will never air anything against his family. In a bid to end the controversy, the actor clarified that it was not targeted towards Ram Charan Teja but it was against those, who underestimates the Telugu director and the Tollywood.
It was all started after Balakrishna - with out naming anyone - said that the the Telugu film industry has many talented men and it is unfortunate that a young hero claimed that the Tollywood lacks good directors. He further went on to say that he warn the actor not to speak without having knowledge about the Tollywood.
It was believed that Balakrishna targeted Ram Charan Teja, as the Magadheera actor recently claimed that the Telugu film industry should take inspiration from the Tamil film industry on innovative filmmaking.
