The incident happened on Wednesday night, 16 August, when he was in Nandyal in Andhra Pradesh to campaign for the ruling Telugu Desam Party in a by-election.

According to a video on Twitter, Balakrishna, 57, is seen slapping a fan for trying to get too close for a picture. He then stares at him and walks away angrily. The video clip has gone viral on social media.

This is not the first time Balakrishna has found himself in such a situation. Last year, during a visit to the Tirumala temple, he had slapped someone who tried to take a selfie with him.

Earlier this month, on the sets of his upcoming yet-untitled Telugu film with KS Ravi Kumar, a leaked video showed an angry Balakrishna slapping his assistant and ordering him to tie his shoe laces.

Balakrishna's upcoming Telugu action entertainer Paisa Vasool is slated for a 1 September release.
