Krishna was a well known filmmaker in telugu film industry hence it was piece of cake for him to enter films but success comes only from hard work, he struggled for years to establish himself solidly in the industry.

# Earlier he had no plans for films and was concentrating on his studies in Russia pursuing his engineering degree but could not complete it due to some family issues.
# His elder brother T. Premchand was a director and died in a car accident. He has a sister, who is a dentist.
# After the death of his brother he entered the films as a director and later started to act in films. His debut movie Tholi Valapu in 2001 failed in box-office meserably. In his next movie Jayam he performed negative role and it was a huge hit, turning his career around.
“I’m not, I’m willing to be the bad guy and get knocked out in the climax by the hero if the role is justified but I don’t want to be a part of two or three fights and disappear.”
“I want to do different films. But our audiences look forward for certain kinds of films only. People don’t accept if hero dies in the climax where as some of the greatest films in Hindi and Tamil have hero dieing the climax.”
“I came to film industry with a purpose. It’s personal one. I will rebuild a school that my father opened up long back.”
“Once the film comes to sets, I just go there and do my work. I don’t interfere. If I interfere in the sets, it will hurt the ego of director. All the directors work sincerely to give best output. By hurting their ego, we are only harming the film.”
