HYDERABAD: U  Sai Krishna, aka Nani Krish, is   an example of how genes play a major role in one’s talent. Children inherit not just physical resemblances from their parents but also some passion, talent and skill, which buried in the plasma of the blood. Born to late maestro Mandolin Srinivas, Krish is innately blessed with a few skills, which is uncommon among his peer group.

At eight, he played with graphics. At 16, he made a spoof of Eega; at 19, he could come up with a documentary on his dad and now he has come up with VFX sci-fi mythological short drama Oppera.  Krish’s mom is equally accomplished. Rajashri is a painter and a sculptor.

According to Krish, he is a keen observant. He always watched his mom closely when she used to work on flash animation.

“I was just eight when I had developed an interest in animation and graphics. I started working on it slowly. I used a few tools to get a hang on the subject. I had decided my profession when I was hardly nine,” he smiles.

Krish was an active kid. To channelise his restlessness, and focused on animations and other Youtube sensations. “I am interested in making short films with subtle social messages, using graphics and animations to harness my skills and in the process I have tried doing a remake of a song from a popular Telugu movie Athadu. I post my work on Youtube and it effortlessly goes viral. It’s a kind of motivation,” he adds.

Krish became a overnight star with the path changing spoof on Eega. “I was 16, when Rajamouli’s Eega had released. I was inspired by the movie and the VFX work in it. I started my first short film by taking Rajamouli sir as my inspiration and I made a spoof on it called Eega Spoof by Kids. I did not expect that to go viral. I couldn’t believe when people were all praise for it,” he exclaims.

How he stands out from others is that he has no godfather nor does he have a mentor. He is his own trainer. He is looking forward to take up specialised training to polish his innate talent.

Though he got separated from his famous dad at a tender age, Krish wanted to pay a tribute to him. “Being a son of a man, who is one of the rulers of music, I thought I would do something for him. I have no memories with him and hence I thought I would document videos of those legends, who share unforgettable moments with him. I made a documentary which not just had bytes of famous musicians and directors but also my dad’s videos. I had released that documentary last October,” he informs with a sense of pride.

Krish feels blessed to share genes with people like his dad and down -to-earth mom. He is attached to his grandparents who are also equally inclined towards carnatic music. He has unconditional support from his grand mother. He says his entire family supports him in every step. Funds in his projects and also bought him numerous gadgets.  His idols? Steven Spelberg, Shankar and SS Rajamouli.

This St Mary’s commerce student is currently working on a sci-fi mythological epic drama The Oppera. “I’m making this short film with great determination and focus under my own channel SSK ARTS. When I had narrated the story to my friends, they were instantly in love with the script. It involves dragons and robotics and it is slated to release on the channel in a couple of months,” he concludes.
