Balakrishna may be 97 films old as an actor and one of the reigning superstars of the Telugu filmdom, but he feels he still is a novice when it comes to politics. On June 19, he entered the exalted portals of the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, after being elected from Hindupur constituency that was once represented by his father, the legendary N.T. Rama Rao.

In a recent interview, this is what Balayya said, “I need to learn a lot from the Assembly. I will spend as much time in my constituency as I can to study problems faced by the people who voted for me. I will not let them down for casting their votes in favour of the Nandamuri family. “I have already starting working on my responsibilities as an MLA and am formulating plans to develop the constituency. I know I have a lot of work to do.

Meanwhile, work on Balayya’s 98th film has begun and it is being directed by debutant Satya Dev, starring Trisha, who happens to be making a comeback to Telugu industry with that film.
