Popular actor and TDP legislator N Balakrishna on Saturday said he would not like to make Pawan Kalyan a hero by reacting to his allegations and declared that he is the 'superstar'.

"I don't want to make somebody a hero by reacting. I am the superstar," said Balakrishna when his reaction was sought by media on the allegations of corruption made by actor- politician Pawan Kalyan against his nephew and son-in-law Nara Lokesh, a cabinet minister in Andhra Pradesh.

Addressing a public meeting two days ago, the Jana Sena President made allegations of corruption against the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government. He also named Lokesh, son of Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.

Balakrishna, who is also the brother-in-law of Chandrababu Naidu, declined to make any further comment on Pawan's allegations.

Balakrishna, son of TDP founder and actor NT Rama Rao, on Saturday visited his Assembly constituency Hindupur to participate in various programmes.

In January this year, Balakrishna triggered a row after he occupied Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu's chair at the latter's office in the Velgapudi Secretraiat.

Many were upset that Balakrishna misused his relationship with the Chief Minister. Balakrishna's sister, Nara Bhuvaneshwari, is married to Naidu, while his daughter, Nara Brahmini, is married to Naidu’s son and Andhra IT Minister, Nara Lokesh.

Balakrishna is constantly in the news for his short temper, as he is known to have slapped multiple people on camera, including his own fans.

Last year, during his electoral campaign tour in Nandyal of Kurnool, he slapped a party man who tried to take a selfie with him.

In the same month, he whacked an assistant director on the sets of Paisa Vasool and forced him to pick his shoes up.

In March last year, much before this episode, Balakrishna had also invited solid criticism for making misogynistic remarks against women actors at an audio release functions.
