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.
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.
