The late actor Krishna meant a great deal to the legendary poet-lyricist Sri Sri

The demise of Superstar Krishna on November 15 sent shockwaves across the Indian Film Fraternity. Many actors, filmmakers, and producers, among others, from across the industries, extended their condolences and support to the Ghattamaneni family. Krishna touched the lives of countless people as a versatile actor and a ‘man with a golden heart.’ While people are familiar with his impact on Telugu cinema and the audiences, not many are aware of what Krishna meant to the poet Srirangam Srinivasa Rao, who’s better known as Sri Sri.

The legendary poet Sri Sri, had also worked as a lyricist for many films and collaborated with Krishna on a few occasions. Back in the day, Sri Sri penned his thoughts about the Superstar as he wrote, “నేను ఒక అక్షరం రాసినా దానికి కూడా విలువ కట్టి పారితోషికం ఇచ్చిన ఏకైక వ్యక్తి కృష్ణ (sic).” (Krishna is the only person who valued and rewarded me even if I wrote a single letter.)

In 1994, print media ‘Suprabhatha’ published a column, which mentioned Sri Sri’s note. Sri Sri also won the National Award for the lyrics of the song “Telugu Veera Levara” from Krishna's cult hit Alluri Seetarama Raju (1974).
