Balakrishna is a serial offender. In August, the actor-politician was caught on camera slapping a fan who tried to grab a quick selfie with him while he campaigned for an important election in Nandyal, 200 kms from the IT hub of Hyderabad.
"Balayya" as the actor-politician is popularly known, is the son of legendary actor and former Chief Minister NT Rama Rao or NTR. He is the brother-in-law of Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. His daughter is married to the Chief Minister's son.
In 2004, Balakrishna was accused of shooting at a producer at his home. The star claimed that he had acted in self-defense; the producer later denied in court that he had been shot at by the actor, which led to Balakrishna's acquittal.
