Young Tiger NTR is a gifted orator. That is a known fact in the industry. He is also a very emotional speaker, who goes with the flow of the moment. His speeches during audio functions and public events are an example. At the audio launch of ‘Baadshah’, NTR made an emotional speech again. But this one was very different.
After learning about the death of a fan in the stampeded outside the venue, a visibly shaken NTR publicly apologised to the victim’s family and promised all assistance needed. One could see that he was in tears, as he spoke. “I always believe that my fans are like my brothers. I am nothing without you. I am deeply saddened by what has happened. I will stand by the family and support them as needed. I will take care of them. It is my promise to you all. Please go back carefully from the venue. There are people waiting at home for you”, said NTR.
The tone of his voice and the emotion in his speech struck an instant chord with his fans. Social networks and online forums were abuzz with the topic. Many fans of Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu also praised NTR for his heartful and apt gesture. “Very few stars speak from the heart. You can almost see it their eyes. That twinkle, and that passion are only seen in NTR, and P1 Kalyan”, tweeted one fan. “I am not your fan NTR, but I respect you as a human being and you have shown once again why I do that “, tweeted another.
Producer Bandla Ganesh also reacted appropriately and announced an assistance of 5 lakhs for the family of Raju, the deceased fan. “I am deeply sorry for what has happened. I know that whatever we do will not bring your boy back, but I will try to atleast reduce the financial burden”, he said.
