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.
