Telugu actor Nandamuri Balakrishna is back in the news again owing to his temper. The actor was recently caught slapping a fan who tried taking a selfie with him in a crowd. The incident happened on Wednesday night when he was in Nandyal in Andhra Pradesh to campaign for the ruling Telugu Desam Party in a by-election.
According to a video on Twitter, Balakrishna, 57, is seen slapping a fan for trying to get too close for a picture. He then stares at him and walks away angrily.
The video clip has gone viral on social media.

This is not the first time Balakrishna has found himself in such a situation. Last year, during a visit to the Tirumala temple, he had slapped someone who tried to take a selfie with him.
Earlier this month, on the sets of his upcoming yet-untitled Telugu film with KS Ravi Kumar, a leaked video showed an angry Balakrishna slapping his assistant and ordering him to tie his shoe laces.
Balakrishna’s upcoming Telugu action entertainer Paisa Vasool is slated for a September 1 release.
