Megastar Chiranjeevi was visibly emotional at the pre-release event of his much-awaited film Khaidi No 150. For the first time in nine years, he donned the make-up again to play a full-fledged role and he was overwhelmed looking at the thousands of fans who had come from all over Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to have a dekko at him at the event.
Chiranjeevi thanked his fans for all the love and support, and stated that his comeback film will impress them. “I kept waiting for the right script for my comeback film and it wasn’t until I saw Murugadoss’ Kaththi that I figured out what I should take up as my 150th film. It had all the commercial ingredients which my fans expect from me,” Chiranjeevi said. He also thanked Lyca Productions and Murugadoss for giving the remake rights. Incidentally, Lyca Productions has co-produced the film along with Ram Charan’s Konidela Production Company banner. “Ram Charan has done a wonderful job as a producer and I hope he continues to produce more films.”
The actor was all praise for director VV Vinayak and said, “He was the perfect choice to direct the film and he has exceeded all my expectations,” he said. In the past, they had collaborated for ‘Tagore’ and that went on to become a blockbuster. Chiranjeevi also praised Kajal saying that her glamour will be a huge asset to the film. “She has done a wonderful job in this film. In the past, she gave many hits with Charan and I’m happy to have worked with her. Perhaps, she’s the first actress who acted with a son first and his father next.”
The pre-release event saw the entire Mega family grace the ceremony and each one of them expressed their joy that Chiranjeevi is making his re-entry to films. Allu Arjun said, “I had been waiting for the past 8 years for this moment and I’m so thrilled that I can feel my happiness from within.” Later, Chiranjeevi and others wished that Balakrishna’s Gautamiputra Satakarni, which is releasing on January 12, also does well at the box-office.
Khaidi No 150, starring Chiranjeevi and Kajal, is slated for release on January 11. DSP has scored the music and Rathnavelu is the cinematographer.
