In 2008 he was a victim of hostage situation in one of the Mumbai’s Taj hotels. He was taken to Azad Nagar police station where he was interviewed by The Telegraph regarding his ordeal there. Krishnadas have told the newspaper that two masked men ran in with machineguns as he was about to order from the menu in the restaurant which was part of a hotel. He ducked under the table, and spent time there in fear and shock, until the employee told him and other visitors about the emergency exit. He was liberated around 8:30 am. Before that, he also witnessed how two foreigners, who tried to escape, got gunned down by the attackers and even heard an explosion.
