Naga Shaurya is back in his comfort zone, romantic comedies, with his next release, Krishna Vrinda Vihari. The film directed by Ala Ela filmmaker Anish R Krishna marks the Telugu debut of Shirley Setia, singer-cum-actress, cast as the female lead. Radikaa Sarathkumar plays a pivotal role in the film bankrolled by Usha Mulpuri and presented by Shankar Prasad Mulpuri under Ira Creations. The film is set to have a grand release this weekend on September 23.

What's the story of Krishna Vrinda Vihari?

The film revolves around a youngster (Naga Shaurya), who's raised in an extremely protective background in a Brahmin family by a conversative mother. While he abides by the norms of his family and the traditions in the house, he's any other free-spirited youngster looking to live life to the fullest. When he lands a job at a corporate firm, he falls for his North-Indian boss (Shirley Setia) and sparks fly between the two. Opposition comes in the form of the protagonist's mother (Radikaa Sarathkumar), who opposes a match for her son beyond their community. Do the couple have a happy ending in store?

What's the USP of the Krishna Vrinda Vihari?

Krishna Vrinda Vihari promises to be a light-hearted family entertainer portraying the clash between traditions and changing norms of modern-day society. The film's good-looking lead pair Naga Shaurya and Shirley Setia share good on-screen chemistry. The film has the right mix of romance, humour, emotions and good music. Mahati Swara Sagar's music has already made a good impact on audiences, thanks to the popularity of the singles. The presence of Radikaa in the lineup adds weight to its cast.

Who play the lead roles in Krishna Vrinda Vihari?

Naga Shaurya, who scored a big hit with Chalo, is the lead actor of Krishna Vrinda Vihari. After tasting insipid results with his recent films like Narthanasala, Ashwathama, Varudu Kavalenu and Lakshya, it's crucial that he scores a success again. Shirley Setia, a singer-cum actress, who made her Hindi debut with the Netflix show Maska and also featured in Nikamma alongside Abhimanyu Dassani, makes her Telugu debut in the film.

Who's the director of Krishna Vrinda Vihari?

Anish R Krishna, who made his directorial debut with the comedy Ala Ela, has helmed the romantic comedy. He later went on to direct films like Lover and Gaali Sampath as well, both of which didn't succeed at the box office. Comedy is the strength area of the director and makes his not-so-good films reasonably watchable.
