Ending the long-wait, Megastar Chiranjeevi’s comeback film Khaidi No:150 is finally in theaters from today. Surprisingly, the action drama, which’s a remake of Tamil film Kaththi, is making a remarkable debut through US premiers.
Inching towards 1 million mark through premiers, the initial figures suggest Khaidi No:150 has effortlessly crossed the half million mark and grossed $600K from 92 locations even before the screenings have commenced. With that, Chiru’s film takes third place while the the top 2 being Baahubali – $1470 and Sardaar Gabbar Singh – $643K.
Going by the trends, Megastar’s 150th film is likely to set a new benchmark in overseas box-office, by finishing premieres with $1 million and remains to be seen whether it will smash the Baahubali record too. Evidently, this phenomenal run says Megastar Chiranjeevi continues to dominate box-office in 2017, even after 9 nine years of gap.
With two more films, still due for release, including the highly anticipated Gautami Putra Satakarni starring Nandamuri Balakrishna and Shatamanam Bhavati featuring Sharwanand in next two days, Khaidi No:150 is set to see tight competition in the following days.
