Director Merlapaka Gandhi could have made Krishnarjuna Yuddham without having Nani playing the double role of Krishna and Arjun. He could have made this film about Krishna’s battle for love as Arjun feels like an afterthought in the narration.

It’s quite different from everything that I’ve done so far. She’s quite bold and straightforward, and for a while, I was surprised that Gandhi had envisioned me in this role.

2. Going by the trailer, Krishnarjuna Yudham seems to offer a well-made 'masala' film to the audience. Given the expertise of director Merlapaka Gandhi, who delivered hits such as Venkatadri Express and Express Raja, we're convinced that it will be hard to find a dull moment in the film.
