Both Balakrishna and NTR coming together on the same stage made fans go in a frenzy. They were not on talking terms for many years due to differences. The sudden demise of Nandamuri Harikrishna has changed the equations in the family and the relations between Nandamuri stars have been revived.
NTR Jr in his speech thanked his babai coming to the event replacing his father Harikrishna’s position. “We have lost our father but Babai Balakrishna is father-like and we bow to him for gracing the event,” NTR said.
Balakrishna admitted that he had not watched Aravindha Sametha yet as he is busy with the shoot of his current movie. However, he praised NTR Jr saying that no other actor could do roles or films that he and Tarak do. “Because audiences demand larger than life roles and movies from us. They want all ingredients in our films. The seek navarasas in one film from us,” Balakrishna commented.
Aravindha Sametha is directed by Trivikram and produced by S Radhakrishna. The success event was attended by NTR, heroines Pooja Hegde and Eesha, Eeshwari Rao, Thaman, Sunil, Trivikram, Brahmaji, Jagapathi Babu, Sirivennela Seetharama Sastry and Ramajogaiah Sastry.
