Khaidi No 150 teaser: Chiranjeevi looks as fresh and dynamic as he did ten years ago
The Boss is back, and how.
The makers of Khaidi No 150 have unveiled the teaser trailer of the big budget film starring Chiranjeevi who returns to the film screen after a hiatus of 10 years.
Interestingly, this will be his 150th film. Since he stopped working in films after his 149th in 2007 to focus on his political career, his fans, well wishers and fellow members of the Telugu film industry have been pushing him to star in another film to touch the golden figure of 150.
The teaser revolves completely around the megastar and you do not get to see even a glimpse of any of his co-stars. There are no signs of life besides the voluptuous back dancers and the baddies that he beats black and blue. Chiranjeevi's towering larger-than-life personality dominates the screen throughout the 45 second-long teaser.
Given the cult figure that he is, the teaser is sure to pull the crowds into the theatres. Though the actor is aged 61, there are no hints of the fact, either on his face or in his spirit.
The film, a typical South commercial potboiler, is the official remake of the Tamil action drama Kaththi directed by AR Murugadoss. Chiranjeevi will reprise the lead role that was played by Vijay in the original film. Khaidi No 150 is co-produced by Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan under the banner of Konidela Production Company. Deccan Chronicle reports that Charan will also make a special appearance in the film and will be seen shaking a leg with his father.
The film also stars Kajal Agarwal and Shriya Saran. According to a report by The Indian Express, Hindi actor Tarun Arora will play the negative role and will be seen exchanging blows with the Telugu juggernaut.
Khaidi No 150, directed by V. V. Vinayak, is slated to release on Makar Sakranti next year, i.e., 14 January, 2017.
