Two months ago, director Venu personally visited him at his nursing home, expressing concern for his health. Sadly, Narsingam was unable to attend the celebratory event in Hyderabad, where ‘Balagam’ received more than 100 international awards. It was during this event that producer Dil Raju presented mementos to the cast and crew, but due to his illness, Narsingam couldn’t be part of the festivities.
‘Balagam,’ set against the backdrop of Telangana, captured the hearts of audiences worldwide with its compelling narrative and exceptional performances. Every aspect of the film was meticulously crafted to resonate with the audience, and it struck a chord with viewers of all ages.
