I have a long association with the film industry and I am working on the script for the past one year." Krishna, who is donning the role of Jesus Christ says, "I have the experience of playing Jesus Christ as I have already played it in an English film produced in Canada and the director had planned to mould the film to enable people of all religions watch the movie."
