Career

In 2008, Krish made his debut with Gamyam, starring Allari Naresh, Sharwanand, and Kamalinee Mukherjee. The film was produced by his father Jagarlamudi Saibaba along with his brother-in-law Bibo Srinivas, who came forward after Krish vainly tried to convince many notable Telugu film producers. The film went on to become a big hit at the box office,1 and won several awards, including the Best Picture2 and Best Director prizes at the 2009 South Filmfare Award.2 Krish's next film, Vedam, released theatrically in June 2010. The film has Allu Arjun, Manoj Manchu, and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles. Vedam was the first-multistarrer film in Telugu films after more than a decade. The film was well received by both critics and audiences. Following the success of Vedam, Krish was signed to direct its Tamil remake, titled Vaanam, starring Silambarasan Rajendar, Bharath, and Anushka Shetty, reprising her role, in the main roles.3 The film is currently under production and will release theatrically on 5 November 2010, for Diwali festival.4
