Telugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna has been receiving a massive backlash on social media after a video of him pushing away actress Anjali at an event, surfaced on the internet. Balakrishna was a chief guest at a pre-release event of Anjali’s upcoming movie ‘Gangs of Godavari’, co-starring Vishwak Sen and Neha Shetty. In a video, which is going viral on Reddit, Balakrishna was seen pushing away Anjali on stage after she couldn’t hear him.

Anjali’s co-star Neha was visibly shocked by Balakrishna’s gesture. However, Anjali took it sportingly and started laughing. Though it’s not clear what the veteran actor told Anjali before pushing her away on stage.

While Anjali seems unfazed by the incident, netizens are extremely upset with Balakrishna and calling him out for being “disrespectful” to women. One user wrote, “It’s crazy how so many people give him a free pass by saying sh*t like ‘it’s just balayya.’” Another one said, “A talented actress treated like sh*t.”

During the same event, Balakrishna said that he doesn’t want his son and aspiring actor Mokshagna to tread his path. “I don’t want him to be inspired by me, although my fans would be upset with my decision,’ he says and adds, “Mokshagna will be making his debut very soon and it will be a much-awaited film. I’ll be behind him like a rock, but I wish he treks his own path,” the actor was quoted as saying by Great Andhra.com.

He continued, “I want my son to take a cue from new-generation actors.” However, Balakrishna claimed that he can match strides with younger generation heroes like Siddhu Jonnalagadda and Adivi Sesh and give them a tough fight. “I am in no mood to give up,” he quipped

Balakrishna is currently making headlines for his big hits like ‘Akhanda’ and ‘Veerasimha Reddy’ and planning to join hands with director Boyapati Srinu for ‘Akhanda 2’.
