Fans travel hundreds of kilometers to see me and be content with seeing me even for a second. For them I should do something or the other. So, I call them and pose for snaps with them. They feel happy when I put my hand on their shoulders and pose for photos. I am the only star who poses for most number of photos with fans in India. Sometimes I stand for three hours just to pose for photos with fans. So why will I hit my fans?"
Balakrishna continued, “However few fans while posing for photos do over action. They push forward falling on me. When some important celebrity is talking they shout making noise. Is that not wrong? During that time I get angry and my hand rises. However I will never hit or scold my fans.”
