Balakrishna might have been a little ambitious jumping 50 feet down
recently for the film 'Nartansala'. Balakrishna fractured his ankle

strictly warned against dancing and fighting for another six months.
Nandamuri Balakrishna, the heir to Legendary actor NTR, needs no
introduction to the Telugu audience. Balakrishna, dearly called by his
fans as Balayya, stayed away from publicity and never really cared for
the media. Though he entered the field because of his father, it's his
hardwork and dedication that got him a top slot in the industry.
film industry at a very young of 14. Tatammakala starring NTR and
Bhanumathi is his first film. He acted in many films with his
father, legendary actor NTR. He acted as NTR's brother in
Annadammula Anubandham and Rowdy Ramudu Konte Krishnudu. He also
played son to his real life brother Hari Krishna in the movie Dana
Veera Soora karna, directed and produced by NTR.
It was in 1984, he did his
first movie as solo hero. Mangamma gari manavadu, Kathanayakudu to start
with. From there on he went to become the hero of the masses. Sitarama
Kalyanam, Desodharakudu, Apoorva Sahodarulu, Ramudu Bhimudu,
Rakthabhishekam, Muddula Mavayya and many more steered his career
successfully into the 90's.
Undeniably, Balakrishna is the best suitable hero to do films with
village backdrop. Village costumes, in full white, fits no one as good
as it does for Balayya. Following NTR, it's only Balakrishna who could
do justice to the mythological films. Bhairawa Dweepam and Sri
Krishnarjuna yudham - both directed by Singitham Srinivasarao fall in
the same category. Only science fiction film in Telugu - Aditya 369 - is
done by none other than Balayya.

31 films have run for more than 100 days. That is almost 40% of his
films were superhits and 6 films have completed golden jubilee runs and
4 out of them were produced by Bhargav Arts producer S.Gopal Reddy.

completing 50 days in 92 theatres. He created all India record with the
same film by completing 175 days in 30 theatres.
Balakrishna has broke his own records and set a new all India record in
80 years of southindian film history with NARASIMHANAIDU running for 50
days in 124 theatres and 100 days in 105 theatres.
