Earlier today, Balakrishna expressed his disappointment over not inviting him to the meetings held between the Telangana government and the film industry. He asked whether they are making land dealings in these meetings. These words didn't go well with actor Naga Babu. The Mega hero demanded an apology from Balakrishna for those insensitive comments. He added that Balakrishna has not only insulted the industry but also insulted the Telangana government through these statements.
Naga Babu released a video on his Youtube channel discussing the issue. In the video, he said, 'When the lockdown has affected the film industry badly, all the actors came forward in helping the poor cine workers. We all know that Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav held a meeting a few days back at Chiranjeevi garu's residence. There was only a limited gathering at the meeting. Few people like Nagarjuna, SS Rajamouli, Koratala Siva, Dil Raju, Allu Aravind and Trivikram have attended this event. I just saw the statements of Balakrishna garu in a news clipping. I don't know if it is right or wrong for not inviting him to these meetings. He should have questioned the one who held the meetings regarding the invitation. There is no problem in him getting upset. But he slipped his tongue by making statements like, 'Are they doing real estate businesses in these meetings?' There must be some miscommunication due to which Balakrishna didn't get an invitation. He should have raised that particular point. But making insensitive comments is not good. It had hurt me a lot.'
'I demand him to take back his words. If you speak against us, we will also speak against you. Please watch your words Balakrishna garu. Do you realize what you are speaking? Is this the way you respect the industry you are working in? You are not only insulting the film industry but you are also insulting the Telangana government. You should apologize to the film industry and the Telangana government. We all know who does real estate dealings. We all know who ruined Andhra Pradesh with the ugly land dealings. You are not the King to the film industry, you are just an actor. Please take control of your mouth,' he added.
