Telugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna has landed in another slapgate controversy. Irked with his behaviour, Twitterati has condemned the erratic behaviour of the actor-turned-politician and dubbed him as 'Bullykrishna'.

Previously, Balakrishna, known as Balayya among his fans, had made headlines for slapping his assistant at the launch of his 102nd movie earlier this month. Even before that news died down, the 57-year-old actor has courted another controversy. This time he slapped a fan while campaigning for Nandyal by-election in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh.

After a busy campaign, Balakrishna was checking into a hotel to rest for the day when one of his fan from a jostling crowd of admirers and TDP supporters accidentally fell on him in an attempt to garland the actor. Without a second thought, Balayya gave him a tight slap. The incident was caught on camera and it created a huge buzz in the social media.

Several neitizens who watched the video apparently got upset. They took to Twitter to condemn his behaviour. A few even called him names. Check out the comments below:
