He is currently busy with the shaping up of the historical opus Gautamiputra Satakarni and here is an interesting info. It is heard that the legendary Sirivennela Seetarama Sastry was the inspiration for this movie.

Apparently, in the film ‘Mahatma’ Sirivennela wrote a song ‘Thala yetthi jeevinchu thammuda’ wherein there is a line ‘Simhamu pai teruvu purusha kesari satavahana purvajudu nee jaatiki.’ It is heard that that line created a strong impact on Krish. He got connected and decided to make a movie on Gautamiputra Satakarni. Also, all songs in this movie are single card by Sirivennela.
