Recently on the stage of TSR TV9 awards Balakrishna was asked to honor Director Gunashekhar for his historical film "Rudhrama Devi" by T Subbirami Reddy which he did not want to do but could not refuse to do. So even though he felicated the director he did it in a way which made it plain to everyone just what his feeling were.
Instead of wrapping the shawl over the directors shoulder he wrapped it over his face and quickly moved away. Why? Reportedly he was angry that the director has asked a tax exemption for his movies when Balkrishnas movie Gautamiputra Satakarni" got it from the government. But it was refused. Reportedly Balakrishna was miffed with this. And that was the reason for his rude behavior.
