Noted Tollywood star and politician N Balakrishna underwent a major shoulder surgery at a private hospital in Hyderabad and is recuperating.

The star had been suffering from a shoulder injury for the past several months and finally decided to undergo the surgery that would relieve him of the pain. The actor has been discharged from the hospital.

Balakrishna was operated by doctors Deepthi Nandan Reddy and Ashish Babulkar and is doing well. A press release by the hospital states: “It was a one-and-a-half hour long operation held on Saturday and it was successful. The hospital administration kept the actor under observation on Sunday as well and he was discharged on Monday morning.”

The actor sustained the shoulder injury on the sets of Gauthamiputra Satakarni a couple of years ago. The star was reportedly performing a stunt scene when he injured himself. However, he did not opt for surgery immediately due to prior acting commitments. Balayya is now taking a short break as the groundwork for his upcoming film, a biopic on his late father and actor-turned-politician NT Rama Rao, is going on.

Balakrishna’s last film to be released was the KS Ravi Kumar directorial Jai Simha, which was a Sankranthi release. This is the first time that Balakrishna and KS Ravi Kumar joined hands and they managed to come out with a box office success. Jai Simha has Nayanthara playing the female lead with Hari Priya in an important role.

For the star’s next project, the biopic on NT Rama Rao, director Teja is busy with the groundwork and the shooting is expected to begin next month.

Reports say that a lot of research in being done to ensure that NTR’s fans and followers get to know him better. Sources say that Balayya has been interacting with NTR’s aides and colleagues in the film industry to know interesting incidents that had happened when his father was the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
