So far, the entire NTR clan had one set of common fans and followers, particularly Balakrishna and Jr NTR who enjoyed the same fan following. Fans of Balakrishna were by default fans of Jr NTR and vice versa. But things have changed overnight. Last Friday, when Jr NTR’s much-awaited flick Dammu hit the screens, hate messages started doing the rounds within hours of the film’s release saying that Balakrishna’s fans should not support the film.
While mixed talks are continuing, there are those who are trying to figure ou the reasons for the film not doing well. And a very shocking talk has begun to make rounds.
It is heard that Nandamuri Balakrishna is one of the key reasons to kill the film. Sources say he has given instructions to his fans and followers to spread negative talk through SMS. It is also heard that with his influence he has got the police forces to be stationed across many theatres in the state.
Usually, giving ‘A’ certificate is censor board’s job but implementing it is police department’s job. However, due to their various other assignments they don’t really care. But if they have a special force or pressure they will do it. Only someone powerful can do that. Buzz is that through Chandrababu Naidu, Balayya is using influence and the police is involving and sending away family audience.
The other point is, Balayya scored hit with ‘Simha’ under Boyapati’s direction but if Dammu also becomes a hit then credit will go to Boyapati. And it is heard that Balayya wants to prove that because he was there the film became a hit. If this talk is true then it sure is a major damage for Dammu.
The question now is whether Dammu, starring Jr NTR and Trisha, will do well in the box office. Well, if it doesn’t, we know who Jr NTR would blame.
