In Bal Krishna 3, we see the greater agency of R. Ethirajah and Sons, Chennai who earlier leased the license to print Bal Krishna 1; but now feel confident to commission N. Ramaswamy Raju and Sons, artists from Tirupati to create their own version of the classic theme. The classic combination of realism merged with the Tanjore inspired style, with all the basic visual elements intact, is additionally layered with a garrish rendition of the palace, with a not so subtle arched colonnade dominating over the protagonist.
