Nandamuri Balakrishna's son Mokshagna recently made it to the headlines by making his first public appearance with his father at the audio launch of Srimannarayana. But just weeks after the event, Mokshagna is back in the news and that is for all wrong reasons. The Banjara Hills police are said to have seized a Tata Safari vehicle, in which he was travelling with his friends after a weekend party.
Times of India reports that along with his friends, Mokshagna was returning home after a weekend party via Road No. 12 on Sunday night (August 19). As a part of their crackdown on drunken driving, the Banjara Hills police detained the Tata Safari, in which five other youngsters were travelling.
According reports, the Tata Safari vehicle (AP 16 BK 1), which was caught by traffic inspector K Balakrishna Reddy, was registered under the name of Venkat Sudhakar. Mokshagna and his friends, who were waiting for another vehicle, reportedly tried to avoid the media glare and left in another car.
However, Venkat Sudhakar was driving under the influence of alcohol, was made to undergo a test by the police. He was proved guilty with the breath analyzer displayed 77 mg of alcohol per 100 ml of blood as against the permitted level of 30 mg. A case has reportedly been registered under section 185 (A) of the Motor Vehicle Act and the vehicle was seized.
However, Balakrishna had recently announced that his son Mokshagna would debut in films in a couple of years after completing his studies. It was rumoured that to bring him to music release function was a publicity stunt for his son. But unfortunately, Mokshagna has created a bad name for himself with this incident.
