Telugu actor Chiranjeevi’s comeback film, Khaidi No 150 has emerged as the biggest hit of actor’s 39-year long career. Directed by VV Vinayak and produced by Chiranjeevi’s son and actor-producer Ram Charan, the film is a Telugu remake of Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s Tamil blockbuster Kaththi.

Khaidi No 150 has minted Rs. 109 crore worldwide in its opening weekend itself to become the all-time second fastest Rs. 100 crore Telugu grosser after SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning. The action entertainer was rock steady at major parts of Telangana state and the overall collection of the film throughout the opening week was at par with Baahubali in most of the places.

However, Khaidi No 150 has managed to set an all-time record in Uttarandhra by crossing the lifetime collections of Baahubali in 10-theatrical days. The Chiranjeevi starrer has grossed a terrific Rs 10 crore in Uttarandhra to shatter the record set by the 2015 Prabhas – Rana Daggubati epic blockbuster.

Khaidi No 150 starred Kajal Aggarwal as the female lead. The film is all set to have a good second weekend at the Box Office until the release of Cingam 3 and Balam on upcoming Friday, the Telugu dubbed version of Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil.
