Later, Krishna bankrolled Mosagallaku Mosagadu. This was the first western movie in Telugu. Directed by KSR Das, it was a big hit at the box office. Later, many hit films got produced under a banner like Kurukshetram and Eenadu. Simhasanam, Mugguru Kodukulu, and Rajakeeya Chadarangam also got produced under this banner. Simhasanam was the first 70mm film in Telugu.
In Hindi, Krishna bankrolled hit movies like Takkar, Himmatwala, Mawaali, and Justice Chowdary. Qaidi, Hoshiyar, Paatal Bhairavi, Singhaasan, and Sooryavansham also got bankrolled under this banner. Krishna bankrolled a handful of films in Tamil and Kannada as well. Currently, Krishna's daughter Manjula is running a production house named Indira Productions.
