Megastar Chiranjeevi Konidela has addressed Nandamuri Balakrishna as a dear brother after the latter donated Rs 1.25 crore to fight Corona Crisis Charity, the CM relief funds of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Chiranjeevi took the lead and started a charity initiative to support the daily-wage workers of the Telugu film industry. He formed a trust named Corona Crisis Charity, lauded all the celebs, who are spreading awareness about the Corona and also requested them to donate. But actor-turned-politician Balakrishna kept mum on this issue. He had neither contributed to this cause nor come forward to spread awareness about it.
A lot was being speculated about Balakrishna's silence over Tollywood's initiative to fight the deadly coronavirus infection. Finally, the actor donated Rs 1.25 crore today. He gave Rs 50 lakh each to the CM relief funds of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. He also donated Rs 25 lakh to the Corona Crisis Charity.
