Nandamuri Balakrishna, known for his reckless behaviour, is said to have slapped people in the past too.

Actor Nandamuri Balakrishna is known for his tantrums and reckless attitude. He has slapped people on the sets of his films in the past, has scolded public and has passed lewd comments at heroines in public gatherings. In a latest incident, Balakrishna was found slapping his assistant on the sets of his new film which was launched on Thursday. The leaked video, which shows Balakrishna slapping him on the head, has gone viral. The video also shows Balakrishna instructing his assistant to remove his footwear. Not very long ago, Balakrishna slapped a fan who tried to take a selfie with him in crowd. The video sent shock waves across industry and made everybody wonder about the behavior of a star of such stature.

On the career front, Balakrishna is shooting films at brisk pace. Having recently completed shooting for Puri Jagannadh’s Paisa Vasool, he has commenced shooting for KS Ravi Kumar’s yet-untitled next Telugu outing. The project happens to be his 102nd film and it reunites him with Nayanthara for the third time after blockbusters such as Simhaa and Sri Rama Rajyam. While he will be seen in a full-length mass-appealing avatar in Paisa Vasool, his role in his next film has been kept a mystery.

Balakrishna might also team up with Krishna Vamsi for a project titled Rythu, which might also stars Amitabh Bachchan in a crucial role. The film’s story will talk about the plight of farmers and Balakrishna is said to play a farmer. He is also getting ready to launch his son’s acting career and it’s most likely to happen next year.
