Nagarjuna issues apology for incident involving disabled fan at airport

Telugu superstar Nagarjuna has issued an apology after a video surfaced online showing one of his bodyguards forcefully pushing a disabled fan who approached the actor for a selfie at an airport.

The incident occurred as Nagarjuna was exiting the airport, accompanied by his bodyguard and fellow actor Dhanush. As the fan, who appears to be a cafe staff member, approached Nagarjuna for a photo, the bodyguard shoved him away, causing the fan to stumble and nearly fall.

The video quickly went viral on social media, sparking widespread outrage and condemnation of the bodyguard’s actions. Many commenters expressed anger and disappointment, describing the incident as “disheartening” and “unacceptable.” Some also criticized Nagarjuna for his apparent indifference, as he continued walking without acknowledging the fan.

In response to the backlash, Nagarjuna took to social media to apologize. “This just came to my notice… this shouldn’t have happened!! I apologize to the gentleman and will take necessary precautions so that it will not happen in the future!!” he wrote.

The incident has once again highlighted the need for public figures to be more mindful of how their security personnel treat fans, especially those with disabilities. Celebrities have a responsibility to ensure their staff treat all members of the public with respect and dignity.

While Nagarjuna’s apology is a step in the right direction, the damage caused by the bodyguard’s actions cannot be undone. The actor must now work to regain the trust of his fans and demonstrate a genuine commitment to preventing such incidents from occurring in the future.
