Megastar Chiranjeevi's Prestigious 150th film, Khaidi No 150 is all set for a grand release in Sankranthi. The movie shooting is complete earlier last month and the movie's censor works are also complete. Ram Charan will be seen in a little cameo in the film. He will be seen in a dance bit of the film in a song.
Khaidi No 150 which is the comeback project for the Megastar is creating tremendous hype in the trade circles. The makers of this prestigious project are looking at a Pre-Release Business of a whopping 103.5 Crore including satellite and others. This is the highest Pre—Release Business of any Senior Hero till date and is even more than the star heroes of current generation.
The movie has to collect 92.5 Crore Share to be a hit and that means it has to cross the current non-Baahubali hit (Srimanthudu). Anything less than 74 Crore Share will be considered as a flop and so the stakes are very high. For that to happen, the movie has to cross Baahubali Day one numbers on its release day which means Target of 22.4 Crore Share only from both the Telugu States. To ensure that it happens, the Ticket Prices of the movie were hiked to a minimum of 150-350 at many places. The Benefit show ticket prices were priced between 500-2000
