It was an INCREDIBLE extended weekend for TELUGU FILMS in USA. Combined biz of *3 new films* is a WHOPPING Rs 25.66 cr in USA alone. SUPERB!? taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) January 16, 2017
The other two Telugu films are Gautamiputra Satakarni, starring Nandamuri Balakrishna, and Shatamam Bhavati:

Box Office India reported earlier that Khaidi No 150's domestic business had given it India's eighth biggest opening day, ahead of Ek Tha Tiger and Dangal- it is preceded on the list by Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Kabali, Sultan, Happy New Year, Baahubali, Dhoom: 3 and Singham Returns.
Khaidi No 150 is Chiranjeevi's first film since 2007's Shankar Dada Zindabad and sees him playing a double role. In between, the 61-year-old actor-politician made special appearances in his son Ram Charan Teja's films Magadheera and Bruce Lee - The Fighter.
In the last 10 years, Chiranjeevi launched his own political party, fought and won elections, was nominated to the Rajya Sabha and served as Minister of State for Tourism. Now, he says he's shifting focus back to movies and will be seen in a second release this year.
