May 29, 2020 02:41 PM

The Telangana Government is holding talks with the Telugu film industry over the resumption of movie shootings in the state. The producers and directors in Tollywood met Cinematography Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav a few times to discuss the issue. They even had discussions the other day with CM KCR too and got a positive nod for postproduction works. Chiranjeevi and Nagarjuna took initiative in leading the filmmakers during the several rounds of these talks.

But, there were also questions raised about the absence of other heroes from the TFI during these discussions. Nandamuri Balakrishna who paid tributes to his father on his 97th birth anniversary at NTR Ghat has reacted to a media question over his absence during these talks. Clarifying that he came to know about these discussions only through newspapers, Balakrishna welcomed the outcome of these discussions on the resumption of shootings with a limited crew. The Nandamuri hero also expressed that the shootings will resume from the second or third week of June after the Government’s GO.

On the other hand, a video of Balakrishna expressing his displeasure for not inviting him to these discussions is going viral. But, there are different versions about the timing of this video shot in Basavatarakam hospital. In the video, the ‘Simha’ actor looked furious over ignoring him and also not making him a part in the TFI talks with the Government. Further, Balaiah blasted in his style by alleging that these TFI talks with the Minister are nothing but real estate dealings among them. Finally, the Legend could only cool down after he vented out his resentment with a beep word.

This reaction of Balakrishna came as a shock to many people in the industry. Producer C Kalyan tried to clarify this issue. Kalyan said that he spoke to Balaiah yesterday at 1:30 PM by explaining to him that only directors, producers, and exhibitors were invited as the discussions were only on resuming shootings and opening cinema halls. Finally, the producer stated that the actor was satisfied with the explanation given to him.

However, Minister Talasani tried to avoid getting into this controversy by stating that he has no issues to even chair a meeting called by Balakrishna also.
