Khaidi No 150 Pre Release Business Target 100 Crores
Unquestionably ‘Bahubali’ has set a biggest benchmark for Telugu films to challenge. Star heroes and top directors are looking at this Mount Everest, making respective adventures to either reach this mark or even cross it. Looks like Mega Star Chiranjeevi is also in the race to breach ‘Bahubali’ with his upcoming ‘Khaidi No 150.’
Apparently, ‘Khaidi No 150’ pre release business is opened for many areas and producer Ramcharan is receiving plenty of calls. Given the stamina of Chiranjeevi and the way he dictated trade terms to Tollywood in 1980 and 90s, the apt tag of ‘Boss Is Back’ is giving jitters to trade circles.
If a report from our business sources is to be believed, Ramcharan and Chiranjeevi have set a pre release business target of at least Rs. 100 Crores for ‘Khaidi No 150.’ All the negotiations happening with buyers from different areas are inclined towards achieving this mark. The exuberant prices quoted by Konidela Production house are of course shocking but they are trusting on Mega Fans base to debase many records.
In contrast, Chiranjeevi’s last appearance in ‘Bruce Lee’ was a dud. How far Mega Star is capable of breaking ‘Bahubali, Srimanthudu’ records is the first question in many minds which can stop the distributors from paying advances. However, the caste and Fanism factors are above financial calculations. If ‘150’ sentiment works positively, we might have a real blockbuster on hand else Mega brand may come under a big threat depending on losses to be incurred in the future by respective area wise traders.
