Superstar Krishna came up the film career, the long way. From being a simple village boy who tried his luck in films, to being the darling of masses, it has been a spectacular career marked by many outstanding moments. He is one hero who was not afraid of experimenting. Be it the Western movies with gun fights, murders, girls and treasure hunts or the thrilling James Bond movies, he was the visionary who saw the opportunity to adapt the unique genres into Telugu films, and he did it with aplomb. ‘Mosagallak Mosagadu’ and ‘Gudhachari 116’ were such big hits that one wonders how he knew there was such potential, especially at times when social themes were ruling the roost.
Despite much speculation he chose to act in the film, ‘Alluri Seetharamaraju’ and saw huge success like never before. Today, you cannot imagine anyone else in the role. Then there were the first colour, first cinemascope, first 70mm – any new innovation Krishna would take it up as a challenge and each time, come out with flying colours. He has made many films that were ahead of its time in their theme and treatment.
After a long break, he has again surprised and delighted his fans by acting in the film ‘SriSri’ directed by Muppalaneni Siva. This reminds us of his second innings with SV Krishna Reddy and how he bounced back as a hero when everyone thought that he has almost retired and may only be seen in supporting roles. With ‘SriSri’ he is making yet another come back, and looking at the publicity posters and trailers, he appears as dashing as ever.
The film releases on June 3, and this time Superstar Krishna is setting a new trend by deciding to release the film online simultaneously for overseas audience on www.mflixworld.com . This will be yet another first to his credit when a Telugu film is releasing online for overseas audience.
