A video featuring actor Nandamuri Balakrishna slapping his assistant and making him tie his shoe laces on the sets of his new yet-untitled Telugu film, has gone viral.

Balakrishna's 102nd film started rolling on Thursday.

In a leaked video clip, an angry Balakrishna is seen slapping his assistant and ordering him to tie his shoe laces.

The clip, which surfaced online on Thursday evening, has gone viral on social media.

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

For his latest project, the 57-year-old has teamed up with popular Tamil filmmaker K.S. Ravi Kumar, known for delivering blockbusters such as Muthu and Annamalai.

The new film marks the third time collaboration of Balakrishna and Nayanthara, who have previously worked in Simhaa and Sri Rama Rajyam.

C. Kalyan is bankrolling the project and the makers are eyeing early next year release.

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