Kanche was a hit for Pragya Jaiswal, Krish wrote and directed Kanche (The Fence), a Telugu-language war film released in 2015. Varun Tej, Pragya Jaiswal, and Nikitin Dheer play the lead roles in the film. The film was produced by Y. Rajeev Reddy and J. Sai Babu under the banner First Frame Entertainment. Kanche is about two men, Dhupati Haribabu (Tej) and Eeshwar Prasad, who are feuding (Dheer).

In the late 1930s, Eeshwar’s sister Sitadevi (Jaiswal) and Haribabu both graduate from the University of Madras and fall in love. Due to the prevalent casteism in their hometown, Eeshwar rejects their friendship and accidentally kills Sitadevi. Haribabu later joins the British Indian Army as a commander to serve against the Axis forces in World War II, with Eeshwar as his commanding officer.

After seeing a bomb dropped by the Imperial Japanese Army stored in a museum in Vishakhapatnam during the filming of Vedam, Krish began researching the subject (2010). He spent nine and a half months writing the script for the film and called it his most ambitious undertaking. The film’s soundtrack and score were composed by Chirantan Bhatt, who was making his Telugu film debut. The film’s director of photography was Gnana Shekar V. S., the art director was Sahi Suresh, and the dialogue was written by Sai Madhav Burra. On February 27, 2015, principal photography in Hyderabad began.

In Tatipaka, Draksharamam, Kapotavaram, and Peruru Agraharam near Palakollu, Kanche was shot. Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad was used to create the majority of the sets. The film’s unit was given 700 weapons, four tanks, and a machine gun from the Georgia Military Institute, a military training academy, for the battle scenes. On July 6, 2015, principal photography was completed. Kanche was shot over the course of 55 days, 35 of which were spent in Georgia.

Kanche, billed as Telugu cinema’s first World War II-themed film, was released on 700 screens worldwide on October 22, 2015, and received positive reviews from critics. It became the 14th highest-grossing Telugu film of the year, grossing $200 million on a budget of $80 million. Kanche won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Telugu and the state Nandi Award for Best Film on National Integration at the 63rd National Film Awards ceremony. The film premiered at the All Lights India International Film Festival in 2016.
