Kishore made his acting debut with Vennela by an accident and is now known as Vennela Kishore. He was in the direction department of the film and director Deva Katta on an impulse cast Kishore as Khader in the film.
After playing comedic roles in a few films, Kishore turned to his first love — direction. He made a sequel to Vennela and titled it as Vennela 1 ½ instead of Vennela 2, which is innovative and attracted instant attention.
Kishore has also incorporated another novel innovation, which he calls as Live Interval. He does not give any details about this and says it will be a pleasant surprise to the audience. He says that he invented the Live Interval concept as he personally does not like the traditional interval break in films. Live Interval is for those people who do not leave their seats at the break and are treated to some fun moments.
Moreover, Vennela 1 ½ has been given an ‘A’ certificate by the censor board. It continues where Vennela ended, and is a laugh riot all the way. The movie is hitting the screens this week on September 21.
