Nandamuri Balakrishna, who made a few shocking comments, while speaking at Savitri audio launch, a couple of days ago, corrected his comments and explained his intention.
It is known that Balakrishna has gone overboard saying that, his fans wouldn't enjoy him going behind a girl in his movies. "I must either kiss or make them pregnant," he said. Though the crowd broke into laughter, the women on stage appeared visibly uncomfortable.
Apparently, a case was filed against the hero for making such sexist comments, being a senior actor from a respectable family and most importantly, being an MLA.
Opposition party leader and actress Roja demanded an apology and bashed the actor for his unpleasant behaviour. Since the issue has been drawing a huge row, a statement from Telugu Desam Party, was released, quoting Nandamuri Balakrishna's apology.
Going by the press release, Balayya stressed that he has immense respect towards women and he had no intentions to disrespect them. Balayya requested everyone not to see his comments in a sexist view and reiterated that he treats every woman as his own family member.
The actor and MLA added that he imbibed the virtue of respecting women from his father, NT Ramarao and said he was only making those remarks in his films' context. He has also extended the women's day wishes to all sisters across the world.
