Balayya Hugs As Lokesh Takes Oath As MLC

Vijayawada: TDP’s General Secretary Nara Lokesh took oath as an MLC in presence of senior Ministers and leaders in Council Chairman Chamber in simple way.

Hindupur MLA, Father-in-law of Lokesh, Balakrishna hugged him affectionately as soon as Lokesh took oath. Balakrishna MLA was centre of attraction with special get up in this function.

Now all eyes are on Lokesh, who will be inducted int state cabinet in April second week. We have to see how Lokesh will cope up the issues like SCS, Agri Gold, farmers’ loan waiver, SSC paper leakage which are hurdles in  front for ruling party.

Perhaps the youngest leader to be the member of this elders’ House, Lokesh would have just two days experience in the House before he becomes a Minister in his father’s Cabinet. While he is expected to sit in the Council in the morning session listening to the other members’ speeches where a good number of them, particularly from the ruling TDP, are expected to shower praise on him. The TDP MLCs are preparing long speeches packed with phrases and praises to define the leadership qualities of Lokesh. The Council Hall is set to see the glorifying speeches of the Members to welcome a new and young member to the House.

This young member of the law-making body is all set to be the prime player in the State government for the next two-and-a-half years. Though his father Chandrababu Naidu would be at the helm of affairs as Chief Minister, it would be Lokesh as a Minister in the Cabinet, who is set to lead the government for all practical purposes. The Chief Minister wants to groom his son as the future leader of the State while he is in the office and ensure smooth passing of the power from his shoulders to his son.

Lokesh would be the second son in Telugu States to be in the father’s Cabinet. In Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s son K Taraka Ramarao has been there in the Cabinet for the past two and a half years.

Hindupur Insults Its MLA, Balakrishna

People of Hindupur constituency are angry with their MLA and film hero Nandamuri Balakrishna for not attending the problems they are facing due to water scarcity.

Hindupur: MLA Balakrishna, who was hugged by voters of Hindupur in 2014 elections, faced an insult by the same people, which led to a lathi charge.

There is a severe water problem in the constituency and people are buying water for ₹10 for pot. Even for buying, there are long queues and men are missing their work due to water crisis. This irked the women and they in protest paraded buffaloes with Balakrishna’s name painted on them.

People are serious on Balakrishna, who did not visit constituency for five months, as he seem to be busy with film shooting. Balakrishna may not contest from Hindupur in coming elections, and that might be the reason why he is not visiting his constituency, say Hindupur voters.

They further say that even if he contested, they would defeat him and teach him a lesson. Those who protested have been dealt with sternly by the police. A number of cases were booked against the people who were involved in the episode.

Balayya continues his moustache sentiment

Continuing his Simha’s sentiment, which is a blockbuster in Balayya’s career, Balakrishna personally designed his look on his own. In ‘Simha’, Balakrishna sported a big moustache. This time, he joined the moustache with his hair near his ears

Hyderabad: Balakrishna’s prestigious 100th film ‘Gauthami Putra Shatakarni’ remained as the highest grosser in Balayya’s career. Surprisingly, a sentiment is continuing for the 101st film of Balakrishna being directed by Puri Jagannath.

According to Film Nagar sources, nobody knows, how ‘Shatakarni’ looks like and there are no historical evidences. However, continuing his Simha’s sentiment, which is a blockbuster in Balayya’s career, Balakrishna personally designed his look on his own. In ‘Simha’, Balakrishna sported a big moustache. This time, he joined the moustache with his hair near his ears. The look suited him well and the film also became a super hit on the lines of Simha. So, a big moustache has become a sentiment for Balakrishna.

So, Balakrishna continued a similar big moustache in his 101st film also as he thought that he should ensure a hit not only to him but his director as Puri Jagannath is in successive failures and he needs a facelift/break. As he is doing the character of a don, he almost looked similar to that of ‘Shatakarni’. It appears that Puri Jagannath is working very hard to make the film a hit as it is very necessary for him at this juncture.

So everyone is thinking how would be the subject and film.

Lokesh Eminently Qualified For Elevation: Balakrishna

Hyderabad: Hindupur MLA, Nara Lokesh’s father-in- law, N. Balakrishna felt that Lokesh  has enough qualifications for elevation as MLC and as Minister.

Party gives priority for individuals who work hard and there is nothing wrong in elevating a hard working young man. His membership drive,   useful ideas that were incorporated in 2014 election manifesto are enough to certify that Lokesh is a matured politician, Balakrishna said.

There were satires going on Lokesh for his entry into cabinet as MLC.  Majority felt if it is through direct elections that Lokesh should have opted for. Some went on to say Balakrishna was sidelined by Chandrababu Baidu to make Nara Lokesh No 2 in the party. But Balakrishna came up openly  and supported Nara Lokesh with pride.

Line is cleared for Lokesh whom we can see as an IT Minister in coming days, according to reliable sources.

NTR biopic plan stirs controversy

  • Lakshmi Parvathi demands ‘true facts’ depicted

Hyderabad: The announcement of film star Nandamuri Balakrishna that he would make a biopic on his father NT Rama Rao has triggered a controversy even before the proposal went to sets.

Balakrishna, son of legendary NTR and founder of Telugu Desam Party, had announced the other day that he was planning to a make a biopic on his father and that research was in progress with regard to its contents. Balakrishna is also the TDP legislator from Hindupur constituency.

Reacting to the proposed biopic, Lakshmi Parvathi, NTR’s widow (second wife), declared that she would move the court if the true facts regarding the life of NTR were not depicted. She would not allow any deviations of the true facts, she said.

Obviously trying to take pot shots against NTR’s son-in-law and AP Chief Minister Naru Chandrababu Naidu, Lakshmi Parvathi said that she would not allow him to be projected as a hero in the proposed biopic. Her insistence that the “true facts” should be brought out in the biopic, Lakshmi Parvathi undoubtedly wants the role played by Naidu in “dethroning” NTR to usurp power in the undivided Andhra Pradesh.

Chandrababu Naidu has earned notoriety for hatching a bloodless coup to bring down his father-in-law from power to become the chief minister after NTR, in a surprise move, married Lakshmi Parvathi who became a power centre of sorts in Telugu Desam.

As a counter to Lakshmi Parvathi’s reaction, some TDP leaders including Bonda Uma remarked that she would be the villain in the biopic. –NSS

శాతకర్ణి సంపూర్ణ రూపంలో బాలకృష్ణ

ఒక సినిమా వస్తోందంటే ఆ మూవీ చేస్తున్న హీరోనే కాదు .. .. అతని అభిమానులు కూడా చాలా ఆశలు పెంచుకుంటారు. ఊహలు అల్లుకుంటారు. స్టార్ హీరో మూవీ కైతే ఇంక చెప్పక్కర్లేదు. ఆ సినిమాకు సంబంధించిన ప్రతి చిన్న విషయంపైనా అభిమానం పెంచుకుంటారు. అపురూపంగా భావిస్తారు. అలాంటి విశేషం ఒకటి జరిగింది.

నటసింహం  బాలకృష్ణ నటిస్తున్న గౌతమీపుత్ర శాతకర్ణి చిత్రంలో  అతని పాత్ర ఎలా ఉంటుంది, ఆహార్యం ఎలా ఉంటుంది అన్న అంశంపై కొన్ని ఊహాగానాలు సాగుతున్నాయి. ఆ పాత్ర  వేషధారణతో బాలకృష్ణ కొన్ని ఫోటోల్లో కనిపించినా … పూర్తి ఆహార్యంతో  కనిపించలేదు. ఇప్పుడు శాతకర్ణి పూర్తి స్వరూపంతో  ఫోటోలు విడుదలయ్యాయి.

గౌతమీపుత్ర శాతకర్ణిలో  బాలకృష్ణ వేషధారణ ఇలా ఉంటుంది అని తెలిపే ఫోటోలు ఇప్పుడు సోషల్ మీడియాలో చక్కర్లు కొడుతూ ఉత్సాహాన్ని రేకెత్తిస్తున్నాయి. ఈ చిత్రం చిత్రీకరణ చాలావరకు పూర్తయినా .. .. అసలు శాతకర్ణి రూపం ఎలా ఉంటుంది, వేషధారణ ఎలా ఉంటుంది అనేది ఇప్పటివరకు వెల్లడి కాలేదు.

తాజాగా విడుదలైన శాతకర్ణి అసలు రూపానికి సంబంధించిన ఛాయాచిత్రాలు  బాలయ్య అభిమానుల్ని విశేషంగా ఆకర్షిస్తున్నాయి. ఇటీవల మధ్యప్రదేశ్ లో శాతకర్ణి రాజసూయ యాగం చేసే సన్నివేశాల్ని చిత్రీకరించారు. ఆ సన్నివేశాల్లో శాతకర్ణిగా  బాలకృష్ణ సంపూర్ణమైన ఆహార్యంలో కనిపించాడు. అంతకు ముందు వరకు శాతకర్ణి సంపూర్ణ స్వరూపం ఎవరికీ తెలీదు.

శాతకర్ణి వేషంలో తమ అభిమాన కథానాయకుడు బాలకృష్ణను చూసిన అభిమానులు  ఆయనను భైరవద్వీపంలోని బాలయ్యతో  పోలుస్తున్నారు.  ఇంతకాలానికి మళ్లీ ఆ స్థాయి పాత్రలో, అలాంటి రూపంలో కనిపిస్తున్నాడని ప్రశంసిస్తున్నారు.

‘బసవరామ తారక పుత్ర’ బాలకృష్ణ

సినిమావారికి సెంటిమెంట్స్ ఎక్కువ. నటీనటుల పేరు విషయంలో కూడా దాన్ని పాటిస్తారు. ఒకసారి తెరమీద ఎవరి పేరు ఎలా వేస్తే అదే తీరు అన్ని సినిమాలకూ కంటిన్యూ అవుతుంది. ఈ సంప్రదాయం ఎప్పటి నుంచో వస్తూంది. అయితే గౌతమీపుత్ర శాతకర్ణి చిత్రం టైటిల్స్ లో బాలకృష్ణ పేరు మరోవిధంగా కనబడుతుందని  దర్శకుడు క్రిష్ చెప్పాడు. అందుకు కారణం కూడా చెప్పాడు.

పేరుకు ముందు ఇంటి పేరు చేర్చుకునేవారు కొందరైతే… ముందు తన పేరు ఆ తర్వాత ఇంటిపేరు రాసుకునేవారు మరికొందరు. సినిమా వారిలో కొందరు తప్పనిసరిగా ఇంటిపేరు పూర్తిగా కానీ, పొడి అక్షరాల్లో కానీ వాడతారు.  ఆ రోజుల్లో నాగేశ్వరరావు, రామారావులకు సినిమా టైటిల్స్ లో వారి ఇంటిపేరు తప్పనిసరిగా ఉండేది. అలాగే బాలకృష్ణ సినిమాల్లో తప్పనిసరిగా … నందమూరి బాలకృష్ణ అని వేస్తున్నారు.

బాలకృష్ణ నటిస్తున్న గౌతమీపుత్ర శాతకర్ణి చిత్రంలో అతని పేరుకు ముందు నందమూరి అని ఉండదు. బసవరామ తారక పుత్ర బాలకృష్ణ అని ఉంటుందట. అలా ఎందుకు మార్చాల్సి వచ్చిందో కారణం వివరించాడు దర్శకుడు క్రిష్. సమాజంలో  పితృస్వామ్యం ప్రారంభమైనప్పుడు పిల్లలపేర్ల ముందు తండ్రి పేరు ఉండేది. అంతకు ముందు మాతృస్వామ్యం రోజుల్లో ఎవరి పేరైనా తల్లి పేరుతోనే ప్రారంభమయ్యేదట.

బాలకృష్ణ నటిస్తున్న గౌతమీపుత్ర శాతకర్ణి చిత్రం కథ మాతృస్వామ్యం కాలం నాటిది. అందుకే శాతకర్ణి పేరుకు ముందు ఆయన తల్లి గౌతమి పేరు ఉంది. ఆమె పుత్రుడు కాబట్టి … గౌతమీపుత్ర శాతకర్ణి నాయధేయమే ప్రాచుర్యంలోకి వచ్చిందని, తల్లి పేరే ఇంటిపేరు అయిందని ఆ చిత్ర దర్శకుడు క్రిష్ చెప్పాడు. తన సినిమాలో నటీనటుల పేర్లు వేసేటప్పుడు ఆనాటి పద్ధతినే అనుసరిస్తున్నానని తెలిపాడు క్రిష్.

బాలకృష్ణ పేరుమాదిరే తమ యూనిట్ లో ఇతరుల పేర్లు కూడా కొత్త తరహాలో తెరపై వేస్తున్నారని క్లిష్ చెప్పాడు. తన పేరు కూడా అంజనాపుత్ర క్రిష్ అని ఉంటుందట.
