If there’s one noteworthy name in the Telugu industry who benefited immensely from his foray into the OTT space, it’s hard to think beyond star, politician Nandamuri Balakrishna. His talk show for aha, Unstoppable with NBK, took him one step closer to audiences and was hugely popular among streaming enthusiasts, earning the streamer many new subscribers across two seasons.

After wrapping up an immensely successful second season of his talk show, Balakrishna is back on aha. No, this time, it’s not for Unstoppable with NBK, but for the reality show Telugu Indian Idol 2. The star, who last appeared on the show for the semi-final during the first season, will arrive for its second instalment as well and introduce the top 12 contestants in the show.


Balakrishna’s special episode (s), titled #GalawithBala, will land on aha this weekend, on March 17 and 18 respectively. That’s not all; for the first time ever, he’ll be performing a rap number on the stage, crooning for a song composed by Hemachandra, while he introduces the top 12 singers. The star also had sung for the party number, Mama Ek Peg La, for his actioner Paisa Vasool recently.

Expressing happiness about performing on the show, Balakrishna shares that music had always been close to his heart. He hopes to surprise audiences with his rap performance and says it’ll be special to share his love for music along with the contestants. “I hope everyone chases their dreams with gusto. We’ll celebrate the power of music together in this episode,” he adds.

Sruthi Nanduri, Saketh Kommajosyula, GV Aditya, Chakrapani Nagri, Aiyyam Pranthi, Karthikeya, Lasya Priya, Soujanya Bhagavathula, Sai Vaishnavi, Pyla Jayram, Manasa, Yuthi Harshavardhan are the contestants who’ve made it to the top 12 list on Telugu Indian Idol 2. Singers Geetha Madhuri, Karthik and composer S Thaman are the judges for the show hosted by Hemachandra.
