Hyderabad: Manjula is better known as the daughter of the Superstar Krishna, who also is an actress and a producer. The elder sister to Mahesh Babu has made some shocking revelations that has kept her away from stardom in the past. She says that she was slated to become an actress way back in the 90’s if not for her father’s fans giving her death threats. It was these threats that made her abort all plans of being in the show business.
She said, “The makers of Balakrishna’s Top Hero planned to cast me as the heroine. However, it did not materialize due to death threats from father Krishna’s diehard fans. Had it not happened, I would have made my acting debut in 1994.”
Throwing more light on the death threats, Manjula revealed, “The moment fans got to know that I got offer in Top Hero, they came with black masks and petrol cans to the studio and stood in front of father and argued, ‘If Manjula acts we will self immolate’. I did not act respecting all of them as my brothers.”
Later Manjula turned producer with Pokiri and Ye Maya Chesave and turned director with Manasuku Nachchindi. She even starred in films like Show, Orange and Sevakudu.
