Interviewing Balakrishna

By T S Sudhir

I did this interview with Nandamuri Balakrishna in May 2008.  The time fixed for the interview was 9:30 am at Balakrishna’s residence in Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad.

“We will come in by 9 am so that my crew can recce and set up the cameras etc,” I said. “No, 9:15 please,” Balakrishna said. Indeed, the security guard refused to open the gate before 9:15 am, because the auspicious time began that day, only at 9:15 am !!!

And dot, at 9:30, Balakrishna entered and sat, ready to answer all questions !

Watch Balakrishna answer candidly on what his role within the TDP would be, on Chandrababu, on Chiranjeevi and what he thinks of the films NTR and ANR did together !

This is a bit from the interview.

    Hi Uma/Sudhir,

    In our profession, we do see different kinds of people, but then Mr. Nandamuri Balakrishna sure is a class apart, would’nt you agree? HaHaHa. But then its interesting guys. Keep it up. I mean the blogging.
