Nandamuri Balakrishna is back in news yet again. The actor cum politician was spotted puffing on a cigarette at the inaugural match of Nadigar Sangam's Natchathirai cricket series at Chidhambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Balayya was one of the large group of Telugu stars who attended the inaugural match and he was seen cheering and enjoying the match. At one particular moment, Balayya, who couldn't bear the scorching Chennai heat anymore, even took off his shirt and lit up a cigarette while other stars were around.
Meanwhile, there has been a hue and cry about Balayya's smoking act ever since a leading English news daily published Balayya's smoking picture in its Chennai edition this morning. Many are criticising this public act by Balayya, which is prohibited according to the law.
