"The creative contributions of Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, and S.V. Ranga Rao have been the pride and cornerstones of telugu cinema. Disrespecting them is a sign of our own inferiority. chaitanya and akhil both posted on their own social media accounts. Clearly making reference to Balakrishna's remark, the Akkineni heroes are not happy with it.
They respond courteously and positively at the same time, and their response is really deserved. It goes without saying that Balakrishna's remark was offensive. He didn't seem to degrade anyone intentionally, and it seemed to come naturally to him. But that doesn't justify his behaviour, and he ought to have exercised greater restraint and netizens appreciate it.
