Star Krishna first appeared on screen in the 1965 film Tenemanasulu. It was a huge hit with audiences and earned a spot as a box office smash. The film’s popularity gave him the boost to his career that he so desperately needed.
The 1966 spy picture “Gudachari 116,” in which Krishna starred, was his first major cinema role. A huge financial success, the film also set a precedent for leading detective roles in subsequent Telugu films.
In the first ever cowboy movie, “Mosagallkau Mosagadu,” starring Krishna, audiences were blown away in 1971. The film, which featured Vijaya Nirmala as the heroine and was directed by K. S. R. Das from a screenplay written by Aarudhra, was a huge hit and eventually became a cult classic. After its initial release, it shattered multiple box office records.
In the groundbreaking film Agent Gopi, released in 1978, Krishna played yet another character that would influence the industry. He was dubbed “Andhra James Bond” after the film became a commercial smash.

Sri Sri, the film’s lyricist, got the National Film Award for Best Lyrics. Screened in the International Film Festival of India in the mainstream section at the Tashkent Film Festival, the film earned the Nandi Award for Best Feature Film.
In 1986, Krishna starred in and was responsible for every facet of the production of the epic film Simhasanam. Box office success was shared between his two roles in the picture.
Krishna and his brothers started a film studio called Padmalaya Studios. After that, he switched parties and eventually became elected as a Congress representative for the Eluru area in 1989. Krishna had a successful comeback in 1993 with films like “Pacchani Samsaaram,” “Vaaraasudu,” “Number 1,” and “Amma Dongaa,” following a string of box office bombs.
