Nandamuri Harikrishna's claims on Young Tiger NTR as the successor of late NTR, who takes the legacy of late NTR forward has not gone down well with exclusive Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna's fans. They are seen posting hatred messages against NTR through social media. Following message is making rounds on social media.
"If there is any actor who could match NTR's stature and stardom, then its none other than SV Ranga Rao. Recently SVR's grandson debuted as a hero and a villain, but none noticed him (Mr 7 movie). Because none of SVR's sons have debuted as heroes, the legendary senior actor lost his loyal fan base. Time made people forget him. Coming to NTR, his legacy is carried by Balayya and a loyal fan base developed for him through his father. It's the same fan base which helped Jr NTR to stand up as a hero in his initial days"
"Without Balayya in the middle, will it be possible for Jr NTR to stand up as a hero in the first case? Without those hardcore Nandamuri fans who are ardent devotees of Balayya, how come Junior would have succeeded in Tollywood? How far it is correct now to say Jr NTR is next to Sr NTR?".
NTR's fans, however, counter to above remarks saying that their hero has never been supported directly by Balakrishna and he attained todays status through his own talent.
