Sometime back, snaps of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy coming with a poster celebrating Balakrishna's film Samarasimha Reddy's 100 days function went viral. This triggered a war of words between YSRCP and TDP supporters.
Many started wondering whether AP CM YS Jagan is a diehard fan of Natasimha Balakrishna. Under these circumstances, Balakrishna Fans Association President Anantapuram Jagan speaking to a channel revealed the secret behind it.
Anantapuram Jagan is a diehard fan of Balakrishna and used to do many social service activities on Balakrishna's birthday and also celebrate Balakrishna's films release days as a festival. He with his acts got into the notice of Balakrishna.
Recollecting his association, Jagan said, “Whenever I used to go to Balakrishna's shooting spot, he used to ask me to sit by his side and introduce me to others as his big fan. Once he even invited me for lunch at his house. He looks after his fans very well."
On AP CM YS Jagan, he said, “In Kadapa, YSR family itself is a big brand. So everyone looks for their support. So everyone used to tell that YS Jagan is the honorary president of Balakrishna's fans association. Frankly speaking even YS Jagan too likes Balakrishna and so it continued."
He even shared the relation between YS Jagan and Balakrishna. He said, “Once Balakrishna was shooting for his film in Kadapa. During that time YSR was the CM of the state. When Balakrishna reached Kadapa, he got a huge reception. YSR family members accorded him a royal welcome. Had YS Jagan not been there, Balakrishna wouldn't have got that reception."
Revealing the secret behind the paper clipping that went viral, he said, “In Kadapa, 20 years back Balakrishna's Samara Simha Reddy got screened for more than a year. During that time Balakrishna fans came with the poster. Though YSR family members were in no way associated with it, they never objected to the poster and the ad".
