After the controversial statement made by Nandamuri Balakrishna on legendary musician A. R Rahman, social media platforms started trending the hashtag “Who is Balakrishna ?” to troll him. The Telugu actor sparked controversy after by claiming that he doesn’t know who A.R Rahman is and doesn’t care for his music and the achievements he made world wide. The 61 year old actor made the statement while interacting with a Telugu channel and the video went viral among the Internet audience.
Despite the music of his film “Nippu Ravva” which was released in the year 1993 was composed by A.R Rahman, the statement made by the senior actor gained him trolls and criticisms. “I don’t know who is Rahman. I don’t care. Once in a decade, he gives a hit and gets an Oscar award” said the actor in a recent interview.
In the interview, Balakrishna went on to add that he doesn’t even value Bharat ratna award, India’s highest civilian award. He expressed his belief on the coveted award not being worthy of his late father NT Rama Rao. “All these awards are equal to my foot. No award can compensate the contribution my family did to Telugu cinema. I feel that Bharat Ratna is equal to my father’s toenail. The awards must feel sad, not my family or father” he said in the interaction.

Balakrishna also compared himself with Hollywood director James Cameron in the interview and said that he will finish his films sooner than the latter. “Unlike the Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron who takes a year to complete a film, I would like to wrap up my shootings quickly. I give more hit films in less time through the way I work said Nandamuri Balakrishna.
