Actors Naga Chaitanya and his brother Akhil Akkineki condemned actor Nandamuri Balakrishna’s recent speech in which he made an offensive remark about their grandfather, the late legendary actor Akkineni Nageswara Rao. Social media also criticized Balakrishna's remarks, as evident from the reactions pouring on the micro-blogging site.

During the success meet of Veera Simha Reddy, Balakrishna said, "My father Sr NTR (Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao) had some contemporaries, aa Ranga Rao (referring to SV Ranga Rao), Akkineni, Thokkineni, and some others."

Now, reacting to the same, Naga Chaitanya and Akhil released a statement in which they stated that insulting legends like Ranga Rao and Nageswara Rao is like disrespecting ourselves. "Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao garu, Akkineni Nageswara Rao garu and S.V Ranga Rao garu's creative contributions have been the pride and pillars of Telugu Cinema. Disrespecting them is degrading ourselves," read the statement.

Netizens took to the comments section and dropped reactions in favour of Akkineki. A user commented, "How angry are you that Anna's grandfather was told wrongly...fans are also angry....keep this in mind...Brother, you...make a blockbuster movie, Anna, let's show our Akkineni power," while another one wrote, "He reminds me of a dialogue written by Trivikram garu in the movie, he says to Tanikella Bharani, Brahmaji."
