Although rumors of a rift between Nagarjuna and Balakrishna were heard from long before, it was at an award function that the buzz came into own. Today, once again at an awards function, those rumors are put to an end. At the TSR National Award event that happened in Vizag today, Nagarjuna brought up the issue and stopped the fans fight once and for all. Nagarjuna said that all the talk about the animosity between him and Balakrishna is unfounded.
As many as 50,000 people are expected to attend the event. Tollywood celebrities will grace the event.
