Actor and TDP MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna slapped a man while campaigning for by-elections in Nandyal, Andhra Pradesh who tried to garland him. As per reports, Balakrishna, son of former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister NT Rama Rao and brother-in-law of current Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, was campaigning for by-elections in the coming week in Nandyal, 200 km from Hyderabad when the incident took place. Furthermore, the video which has already created a storm on social media, shows the leader surrounded in a mob of fans and supporters. As the video unfolds, one man is seen attempting to garland Balakrishna, which results in the accused slapping the man and pushing him away.
This is not the first time that the actor had lost his cool amidst fans. Merely a few weeks ago, Balakrishna was caught on camera slapping his assistant on the sets of his new film. The video also showed Balakrishna instructing his assistant to remove his footwear. Earlier this year, during his visit to Tirumala temple, the actor-politician slapped a fan for attempting to click a selfie with him.
