Though it is not spoken in the open the industry insiders gossip that there is a cold war on between Nandamuri Natasimham Balakrishna and ‘King’ Akkineni Nagarjuna. Neither attends each other’s events and this has further strengthened the gossip. This time, one statement from Nag has been interpreted as a punch to Balayya.
Apparently, there has been a lot of chaos regarding the Nandi Awards announced by the government of Andhra Pradesh and most importantly the focus was on ‘Legend’ getting the best movie award sidelining ‘Manam’. There is a strong element of genuineness in this question and a huge criticism followed the incident.
Anyhow, Nag finally got to respond to this issue citing ‘Manam’ doesn’t require any award because the best award they got was the hearts of the audience and their patronage. Those who could read between the lines are asking is it a punch. As such, Nag has always been diplomatic about his opinions so we leave it to your wisdom to take it the way you like.
