Long back late NTR essayed lord Krishna's roles in good number of mythological movies. Other heroes such as Kantha Rao, Sobhan Babu were also seen in Krishna's roles in some movies. As far as the senior heroes of our times are concerned, Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna and King Nagarjuna played lord Krishna's roles. Balakrishna played the lord Krishna's roles in the movies such as 'Srikrishnarjuna Vijayam' and 'Pandurangadu'. Both the movies were proved to be duds at the box office. On the other hand, Nagarjuna was seen as modern Krishna in 'Srikrishnarjuna'. This movie bit the dust at the box office.
And now, Power Star Pawan Kalyan sports the role of modern Krishna in 'Gopala Gopala'. The movie's puja formal puja was held recently and the shoot will be wrapped in a single schedule. Unlike Balakrishna and Nagarjuna, Pawan Kalyan is expected to give a resounding hit with 'Gopala Gopala' in lord Srikrishna's role.
