The numbers are proof of the fact that audiences have eagerly waited for Chiranjeevi's comeback. The film collected around Rs 30 crore from the two Telugu states."
Chiranjeevi, 61, is fondly called 'mega star' by his fansKhaidi No 150, directed by V V Vinayak and co-starring Kajal Aggarwal, is his comeback film after a gap of 10 years - he was last seen before this in 2007 film Shankar Dada Zindabad. The film is a remake of Vijay's Tamil hit Kaththi and has been produced by Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan Teja, who makes a guest appearance in Khaidi No 150.
