Hero Balakrishna is now seen carrying his laptop wherever he goes. Even to film shootings. The reason is that Balakrishna is now watching the latest releases in Hollywood on his laptop.
After the debacle of 'Okkamogadu', Balakrishna's daughter Brahmani and son-in-law Lokesh are reported to have advised him to act only in those films that suit his age character.
Lokesh and Brahmani are now sending the latest DVD of hit Hollywood films. Balakrishna is now watching them religiously whenever he finds the time, even between shots on location of his latest film 'Pandurangadu'.
2011/9/16 17:33:34 The Central Bureau of Investigation sleuths on Friday went to Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naiduâ€™s residence as part of investigations into the purchase of villas in Emaar Properties by his daughter-in-law Brahmani.
According to sources, three CBI officials went to Naiduâ€™s residence and grilled Brahmani and other family members for more than one and half hour in connection with purchase of a villa in Emaar Properties.
Earlier, the officials served notices to Brahmani for questioning. As per CrPC rules, the officials went to her house to collect the information. However, since Brahmani and Lokesh were in the US, the officials grilled her family members and recorded their statements.
The officials completely avoided media glaze at Naidu residence.
Earlier, Naidu stated that Brahmani has two villas in Emaar Properties and they were given to her before marriage with his son Nara Lokesh by his brother-in-law Nandamuri Balakrishna. (INN)
Lakshmi Parvati is conspicuous by her absence at the engagement of Lokesh with Brahmani. She is the legally wedded wife of NT Tama Rao and by law is the step-mother to the Nandamuri clan. But the family members of NTR never accepted her and did not give her the status of their step-mother.
All this is history. But the habit of making unnecessary comments has not left Lakshmi Parvati. She has this penchant for putting her foot in the mouth at regular intervals. She now says that Lokesh is not the right partner for Brahmani.
Brahmani is a beautiful and intelligent girl and she deserves someone better than Lokesh. Her unwanted comments are only making her the laughing stock of everyone.
2007/12/20 13:18:09 Chandra Babu Naidu’s son Lokesh and his wife Brahmani were spotted in public for the first time after their marriage. The couple was in Tirumala. The couple had darshan of lord Venkatewara Swamy through the vaikuntam queue complex.
Today is Vaikunta Ekadasi – one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar. The Vaikunta dwaram as it is known, is opened only on this day in the year. As usual, there was heavy rush at Tirumala and pilgrims stayed awake all night to have vaikunta dwara darsanam.
Lokesh the son of TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu will accompany his father to the US. Lokesh is getting engaged to Brahmani daughter of Balakrishna on 24 June. He will leave for the US on 26. Chandrababu is going to the US to garner funds and support for the next assembly elections.
Lokesh will accompany his father to all public functions. It is believed that Chandrababu wants to introduce his son to the vast NRI population. Lokesh could play a key role in the next assembly elections. Babu will be in the US for a fortnight. He will also take art in TANA celebrations there.
Balakrishna is a proud father today. Why not? His daughter Brahmani got a seat in MBA the prestigious Stanford University.
Stanford is the most sought after university in the world where top and illustrious people like the Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, Yahoo founder, Google co-founder, HP founder and others studied at Stanford.
Brahmani who is married to Nara Lokesh son of Chandra Babu Naidu also bagged admission in three other major universities – Harvard, Kellogg and Houston. However, Brahmani will study at Stanford.
2007/8/7 19:57:09 Chandra Babu Naidu will host the wedding reception of his son Lokesh at his native place Naravaripalli on August 27. And Balakrishna will host another reception at his hometown Nimmakuru on August 29.
It has been reported earlier that Lokesh will tie the knot with Brahmani, daughter of Balakrishna at Hitech grounds in Hyderabad on August 26.
2007/8/25 15:31:28 The sangeet ceremony of Lokesh and Brhmani’s wedding was held in Hyderabad on Friday evening. Babu, Balayaa, Mohan Babu, Brahmani, Lokesh and the family members of late N T Rama Rao spent over two hours dancing to the tunes of popular Tollywood and Bollywood songs.
Babu dances with Mohan Babu for a few minutes much to the delight and amusement of the family members. Lawrence is choreographing the dance numbers. Some more danced programmes have been lined up for Sunday. The popular Big b number Gajarare.. Gajarare.. was played over and over again and everyone danced way merrily.
2007/8/28 16:29:19 The newlywed couple Lokesh and Brahmani donated bout 50 lakhs to charity. An amount of 2 lakhs to two charitable institutions from each district is being given to enable them to do charitable work.
The cheques were given to the representatives of select chartable institutions by the newly wed in the presence of Babu on Monday.
2011/9/10 17:21:50 The Telugu Desam Party on Saturday demanded an enquiry into the affairs of Brahmani Steels.
Talking to media at NTR Trust Bhavan, TDP floor leader in legislative council D Veerabhadra Rao said several irregularities have taken place in the Brahmani Steels. Besides resorting to several violations, the company's management have also taken loans from the banks while keeping the administration in the dark. Demanding a thorough probe, Veerabhadra Rao wrote a letter to Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu asking him to ask the CBI to extend its probe to irregularities in Brahmani Steels.
However, the TDP leader suspected that the Chief Minister himself could be involved in the Brahmani Steels scam. He said irregularities at such a large scale could not happen without the involvement or knowledge of the top brass. Therefore, the Chief Minister must first clear his stand and then ask the CBI to focus its probe in Brahmani Steels irregularities.
Veerabhandra Rao also criticised the Chief Minister for non-constitution of a House Committee to probe the irregularities in the allotment of land on Hyderabad's outskirts. He said despite giving an assurance on the floor of the House, the Chief Minister did not honour his words. He demanded that the proposed House Committee be constituted without further delay. (INN)
2007/8/28 16:30:20 The wedding reception of Lokesh and Brahmani was held at NaraVari palli this morning. People from the neighboring villages thronged in large numbers for the reception.
As every one moved to the dais to take a closer look at the bride and groom, a minor stampede took place. Some people were injured. The police personnel and the private security had a tough time but managed to bring back normalcy. Some people lost money and valuable in the commotion.
2011/9/11 8:28:49 Balakrishna, responding to a media question about his daughter Brahmani having a Villa in MGF venture developed by Emmar Properties, said "There is no irregularities taken place in purchasing Villa in that venture. We didn't violate rules and regulations for buying the Villa. Hence, it is not fair to drag Brahmani's name into media and create controversy about her investment in MGF."
2007/12/27 21:42:41 The TDP chief Chandra Babu Naidu is now in Mauritius. He is there purportedly on a holiday. But sources say that he is there on both a business cum pleasure trip. Babu is in Mauritius along with his wife, son Lokesh and daughter-in-law Brahmani.
Sources say that Babu will spend the New Year in Mauritius. Babu is also looking at some business opportunities in the country. He is reported to be investing in some commercial establishments as well a setting up a hotel. The year 2007 has not been particularly good for Babu and he must be eagerly waiting for the arrival of the New Year.
TDP chief Chandra Babu Naidu along with wife Bhuvaneshwari met Sathya Sai Baba at Prashanthi Nilayam in Puttparthi on Friday. After seeking the Baba’s blessings, Babu invited Baba to grace the weeding of Lokesh with Brahmani and offer his blessing.
Chandra Babu Naidu is grinning from ear to ear. Well you can notice it only if you look at him closely. The secret is not the Mahanadu. Babu is of course pleased with the way the Mahanadu has been conducted. It is the silver jubilee no doubt but he has stage managed it in such a way that the whole limelight is only on him.
Even the charismatic Harikrisha, who was received with enthusiastic response by the participants, could not steal the lime light from his brother-in-law Chandra Babu Naidu. Coming to Chandra Babu’s smile, it is due to a coup of sorts that he managed with the family of NTR. He has managed to convince Balakrishna and other family members to the marriage of Lokesh the son of Chandra Babu and Bhuvanehwari with Brahmani, the daughter of Balakrishna.
With this Babu has achieved a lot of things. The first is he has eliminated the threat of Balakrishna as a potential rival to him in the party. The move also gives him a chance to get the entire NTR’s family to rally behind him for the next general elections.
And then there are all the millions that he made and that of Balakrishna will remain in the family. However, it is said that the bride was none too willing to marry Lokesh but as prevailed upon by the family members. The marriage is likely to take place some time later this year.
