    When Balakrishna Landed In Big Trouble For His Comment About 'Pinching' Actresses

    |

    Balakrishna, the resident 'Nata Simha' of Tollywood, is arguably one of the biggest mass heroes in Telugu cinema. The veteran actor enjoys a strong fan following as he is a bindass entertainer, who hails from the legendary Nandamuri family. A few years ago, NBK found himself in midst of an ugly controversy when his colourful comments about his heroines went viral, leaving 'N' fans red-faced. The controversy worsened because of the star's political affiliations, resulting in an ugly situation.

    Following the backlash, Balakrishna apologised to those offended by his statements, and said he has 'utmost respect' for women.

    "I have utmost respect towards women. The comments which I made were not to target anyone. Recollecting my previous movies, I made the comments. I extend my greetings to all women from the Telugu states and across the country on Women's Day," (sic) said Balakrishna.

    With the controversy in the past, Balakrishna is busy entertaining his die-hard fans with his movies. The Lion star was last seen in NTR Mahanayakudu, which bombed at the box office. He is currently working on NBK 105, helmed by top filmmaker KS Ravikumar. He also has a film with mass director Boyapati Srinu in his kitty. The movie, being referred to as NBK 106, is likely to be a mass entertainer with plenty of commercial elements.
