Puri Jagannadh stirred a new controversy with his speech at the ‘Paisa Vasool’ audio function by supporting Balakrishna’s slapping episodes as ‘love stories’. Even though some people have taken his comments in a lighter vein, the majority of the netizens are trolling Puri for his blind support to Balayya. Senior heroine & columnist Kasturi recently criticised Puri for his remarks.
She took Twitter to take a dig at him. She tweeted that “#NandamuriBalakrishna’s fans love to be hit- #PuriJagan says. uhhh…Maybe that drug charge wasn’t without basis after all.” Balayya supporters are taking slapping episodes casually but others are slowly coming out and criticising Balayya. They are saying that Balayya should be more patient with his fans.
On the other hand, Balayya didn’t respond to these ‘love stories’ till now. As Puri-Balayya film ‘Paisa Vasool’ is slated for release on September 1, they are getting ready for the strong promotional programmes.
