Today, all the Muslims throughout the country are celebrating the festival of Eid. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the government has requested people not to come out and celebrate the occasion at home. Meanwhile, Tollywood celebrities are extending their wishes to all the Muslims of the Telugu states. Hero Nandamuri Balakrishna made a special video of himself conveying the Eid wishes to everyone. He also requested them to celebrate the festival at home, as we are dealing with the COVID-19 crisis.
In the video, Balayya said, "As-salamu Alaykum! Eid Mubarak to all the Muslim brothers and sisters. Muslims are the epitome of love and sacrifice. Even amidst the coronavirus crisis, all of you have followed Ramadan month with dedication by fasting every day. I wish that all your prayers come true. I also pray that we should come out of the coronavirus pandemic soon. I request all of you to celebrate the festival by staying at home. Eid Mubarak to everyone, once again. Khuda Hafiz." Other actors like Megastar Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu and NTR have also extended their Eid wishes.
On the professional front, Balakrishna was last seen in the 2019 film Ruler. Directed by KS Ravikumar, this film ended up as a failure at the box office. He is now working on his new film which is being directed by Boyapati Srinu. The film got done with the first schedule of its shoot. The second schedule will begin once the lockdown gets over.
