Telugu actor Chiranjeevi’s comeback film, Khaidi No 150 is doing extraordinary business at the Box Office worldwide. 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.
After minting a record-breaking Rs 50.50 crore worldwide on its first day, Khaidi No 150 continued to perform well throughout the opening weekend. The action entertainer has so far collected a whopping Rs 90 crore worldwide from its 5-day weekend and is all set to join the elite Rs 100 crore club soon.
Khaidi No 150 did a mind blowing business in Andhra Pradesh/Nizam regions by minting approximately Rs 55 crore in five theatrical days. In the Vizag region, the Chiranjeevi-starrer has set an all-time first-week record by overtaking the collections of 2015 Mohanlal-Jr NTR blockbuster, Janatha Garage.
Khaidi No 150 was excellent at overseas as well. The VV Vinayak directorial has minted $ 2,002,531 to become the third Telugu film with highest opening weekend after SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning and Mahesh Babu’s Srimanthudu at the US Box Office. Khaidi No 150 also emerged as the fourth Tollywood film to cross the $ 2 million mark at US Box Office after Baahubali, Srimanthudu and Nitiin- Samantha-Anupama starrer A Aa. The film also leaves behind Aamir Khan blockbuster Dangal and last Friday’s Bollywood release, Aditya Kapur-Shraddha Kapoor-starrer OK Jaanu.
Khaidi No 150 also stars Kajal Aggarwal, Tarun Arora, Ali and Tanikella Bharani. The film marks the end of Chiranjeevi’s nine-year-long break from the big screen. His last release, Shankar Dada Zindabad, the Telugu remake of Bollywood film Munnabhai MBBS, was released in 2007.
Khaidi No 150 is expected to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in next two days.
