The audio launch of Chiranjeevi’s comeback film Khaidi 150 was planned in a grand way in Vijayawada. The audio launch is initially planned for Dec 25th and none other than film’s producer Ram Charan too had announced that the audio launch would be conducted on the eve of Christmas.
Although there was Plan-B to postpone the audio launch to Dec 30th, even that wasn’t executed. Dampening all the hopes of fans, the audio launch event has been cancelled.
In fact, all the permissions from the government, police department have come. Yet the audio launch event has been cancelled in the last minute. Instead, the makers are now planning to hold a pre-release event.
Going into details, the audio is slated for Dec 25 in Vijayawada’s KLU Ground. Mega producer Aravind and team Khaidi 150 visited Vijayawada and took note of necessary possibilities. In fact, they had also got permissions for another venue as a back-up plan.
But taking a major u-turn, makers have decided to cancel the audio launch event and instead decided to release it straight into the market. There would be a pre-release event a la Sarrainodu, Dhruva.
Public gathering is said to be a big issue. If the audio launch is held on Christmas day, since it’s a festival day, many people would indulge in festivities or prefer spend time with family.
If the audio launch is postponed to Dec 30th, again people would be busy in New Year celebrations and public gathering is expected to be a problem.
Absence of Pawan Kalyan.
Vangaveeti audio held in Vijayawada witnessed over 50,000 crowd. Naturally, Chiru’s Khaidi No. 150 should at least gather over 70,000 crowd and it’s easier said than done.
Even if the crowd turn-out, again it’s not easy to handle them and their chants, slogans like “Pawan Kalyan” which may become embarrassment for Chiru & mega clan.
Even for Vangaveeti audio, Pawan’s slogans were heard and Jana Sena flags were seen all over the place. Anchor Jhansi had lost her cool to control the mob. And if it’s a mega event, this could be more and uncontrollable.
Considering all the above reasons, makers seem to have chosen to cancel the audio event and a pre-release event is expected to held in Hyderabad ahead of film’s release.
