Chiranjeevi, who has been busy shooting for his 150th film Khaidi No 150 over the last few months, has taken a break to take up his role as television show host of Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu. He will shoot the first episode of the show on October 11.
"The first episode will be shot on October 11. The entire season will be shot in a week's time and it will be aired in December around the New Year," a source in the know told IANS.
Chiranjeevi takes over the reins of the show from Nagarjuna, who had successfully hosted two seasons so far.
Meanwhile, nearly 70 percent of Khaidi No 150, which features Chiranjeevi in a dual role, has been wrapped.
Directed by V V Vinayak, the film is being produced by Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan, and is slated to hit the screens during Sankranti festival next year.
