Nandamuri Balakrishnan was one of the first Telugu actors who worked with A R Rahman. However, the actor recently courts controversy for his statement in an interview.
Take a look at what he says:

For those of us who don’t understand Telugu. Here’s the translation of what he said…
“I don’t know who AR Rahman is. He won an Oscar and I don’t even know who he is. He gives a hit once in a decade”
Says the actor who worked with Rahman in “Nippu Ravva”, Irony much?
Cringing already? Wait! There’s more.
In addition to this, he further speaks about the country’s most prestigious award.
“I feel that Bharat Ratna is equal to my father’s [NTR] toenail. No award can compensate for the contribution of my family to Tollywood. So, only the awards should feel bad. Not my family or my father.”
Okay, LOL! Instead of us telling you further, we will let the audience speak for us!
@arrahman Sir, May be you don't understand telugu, Our Telugu Super Star Balakrishna is disappointed because you only worked for his Nippurava BGM and Not for straight movie, He Says you are unfit for OScar https://t.co/dA6NfSwkn2
