Barely has the dust settled on the incident of him assaulting an Assistant Director, and actor and Hindupur TDP MLA Balakrishna has done it again. This time, the actor is in the news for slapping a fan.
The incident occurred when a fan tried to actor-politician. A video that surfaced online on Thursday, shows Balakrishna hitting the fan, and one of his security guards also taking a parting shot.
TNM is as yet unable to confirm the venue of the incident or the details of the victim.
However, the actor was on the campaign trail for the Nandyal byelections on Wednesday, on behalf of the TDP.
Balakrishna is not new to controversies. Earlier this month, he was caught assaulting an Assistant Director on the sets of his untitled film.
Last year, he pushed away a fan who attempted to take a selfie with him.
In March, during the audio launch of a film, the actor made some controversial and misogynistic comments about women.
â€śIf I play eve-teasing roles, and just follow girls, my fans will not accept. Either they should be kissed or should be impregnated. Thatâ€™s all. We have to commit ourselves,â€ť he said.
â€śI too act naughty with the actresses... I pinch them sometimes,â€ť the actor added.
Balayya, as he is popularly known, is former Chief Minister NTR's son, and the brother-in-law of current Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.
