During the audio launch function of 7th Sense, Ram Charan Teja had heaped praises on AR Murugadoss and claimed that the Telugu film industry lacks such technicians. He believed that the Tollywood filmmakers should take inspiration from the Tamil directors on innovative filmmaking. This statement on the Telugu technicians seems to have not gone well with Balakrishna.
Without naming anyone, Balakrishna said that the we have many talented men and it is unfortunate that a young hero claimed that the Telugu cinema lacks good directors. He further went on to say that he warn the actor not to speak without having knowledge about the Tollywood. He will not spare anyone, who speaks against the Telugu film industry.
However, Chiranjeevi has reacted to Balakrishna's statement that the senior actor does not make such statement without any meaning.
