Nandamuri Balakrishna faces flak after he pushed Telugu star Anjali on stage of an event.

Fans are speculating that Nandamuri Balakrishna was drunk when he pushed Telugu actress Anjali at a pre-release promotional event of Gangs of Godavari. While the actor-politician is yet to react to the incident, social media users noticed that there was a bottle with what they seem to believe is alcohol filled in it. The videos of the bottle went viral, with many speculating that he was drunk when he was on stage with Anjali.

However, the producers of the film dismissed the rumours. Gangs of Godavari producer Naga Vamsi spoke to the press on Thursday and said that the bottle spotted in the video was inserted using CGI. “That bottle was added in the video via CG. In reality, there was no bottle,” producer Naga Vamsi claimed.

For the unversed, Balakrishna was seen pushing away Anjali on stage after she couldn’t hear him. While Anjali laughed it off, social media users slammed him. Director Hansal Mehta called Balakrishna a ‘scumbag’ for pushing Anjali on stage. Taking to X, he condemned the act. “Who is this scumbag?” Hansal asked, while sharing the video of the incident. A social media user defended Balakrishna.

Addressing Hansal, the user said, “They both have acted before with each other so they’ve that bonding, irrespective of age he had that friend kinda vibe with co stars, he’s the biggest star of Telugu film and industry and the son of great SR NTR and is the uncle of JR NTR, so before calling him a scum bag and all the words ur using think once and tweet before keeping a finger into someone’s life who is a star himself and PPL around know.”

Hansal reposted the message and wrote, “Scumbag x100.”
