It is time to celebrate Lord Krishna's birthday (Janmashtmi) and kids channel Cartoon Network is making it auspicious by premiering the animation film Krishna: The Birth on August 16.

The 75-minutes long, 2-D animation movie is produced by Hyderabad-based Green Gold Animation Studio and traces the birth of Lord Krishna, the revered incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

This is the first of the four planned Krishna series to be showcased on Cartoon Network.
