Balakrishna turned down CM Jagans invite, reveals why

Nandamuri Balakrishna was not present as part of the Tollywood delegation that met with AP CM Jaganmohan Reddy. Megastar Chiranjeevi, Mahesh Babu, Prabhas and SS Rajamouli were present. But Balayya and Jr NTR were absent.

On Tuesday, the Nata Simha said that he had turned down the invite because he didn't want to meet with the CM on the cinema ticket pricing issue. The senior actor, who is also a politician, said that he never believes in hiking his remuneration and inconveniencing the producers of his movies.

Balayya made it clear that 'Akhanda', which hit the screens on 2 December 2021, was a blockbuster despite the low ticket prices in AP. "I had previously made my opinion about the ticket rates clear," he added.

The 'Legend' actor also said that he won't be calling on the CM for anything concerning the ticket pricing issue. However, he will always be willing to meet with the CM to discuss any issue pertaining to Hindupur, whose MLA he is.

A Government Order proclaiming revised cinema ticket prices is expected to be out soon.
