He said, "I recently did a film with Balakrishna. He will lose his cool if anybody smirks at him...He (Balakrishna) would keep pulling up someone for laughing at him. He asked Saravanan to turn the fan towards him. When my assistant turned the fan, the air slightly disturbed his wig, and he laughed at it. I was worried that he might beat up Saravanan. I requested him to forgive him, saying he was my assistant. But, he said that he was from an 'opposite gang.' He is always a bit suspicious of everyone."
