Megastar Chiranjeevi’s comeback movie Khaidi No 150 remained strong at the worldwide box office on Thursday, taking its two-day global total collection beyond the mark of Rs 70 crore gross. The Chiranjeevi starrer, which was released as Sankranti treat in nearly 2,000 screens on January 11, opened to an overwhelming response everywhere on Wednesday. Khaidi No 150 collected Rs 50.45 crore gross at the worldwide box office on the first day. The movie became the second all time biggest Telugu film after Baahubali. It earned Rs 35 crore for its distributors on its opening day.
The VV Vinayak-directed action thriller received positive talk from both critics and the audience and the word of mouth was expected to take its business upwards on Thursday. But its business dropped considerably for two reasons. Firstly, unlike its opening day, the movie did not have early morning shows and secondly, new release Gautamiputra Satakarani became the first choice of many viewers. When compared to its opening day business, the remake of Kaththi witnessed over 65 percent drop in its collection on Thursday.
Khaidi No 150 has collected approximately Rs 20.50 crore at the worldwide box office on its second day and its gross total has reached Rs 70.95 crore.

Friday brought good figures in the account of Khaidi No 150 and total of the third day was recorded at 5.50 Crores* in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. Looks like, Chiranjeevi’s comeback film is going to break records everywhere. Khaidi No. 150 is the Telugu remake of the Tamil movie Kaththi.
The remake starred Chiranjeevi in a double role. He was seen opposite Kajal Aggarwal for the first time. The movie was directed by VV Vinayak. The film also marked Ram Charan’s debut into production. While Chiranjeevi did a decent job as Kaththi Seenu and Shankar, the supporting cast Brahmanandam and Ali ( as Dober and Malli0 were great too. The director made sure, the movie wasn’t just about the megastar. Also, the actions scenes with Chiranjeevi were brilliant.
