Megastar was worried a bit as to how people will receive his movie as it is a remake movie and almost every one has already seen it. And the overseas distributor was also skeptical about the amount he paid for the rights.
And finally the Boss has arrived and that to with a bang proving his Star power, as Khaidi No 150 has not only taken earth shattering bookings but it also collected 1 million USD only through premiers proving that Megastar still rules the roost of Tollywood.
As per the numbers Khaidi No:150 has raked in $1080K from 112 locations and that number may see a good raise by end of the day. So, with Khaidi No:150 performing well at box office, Chiru is likely to continue that hot streak thanks to his immense star power.
On other hand, the benefit shows in Telugu states have begun on a large scale and it remains to be seen if Megastar has that magical touch at non-US box office too.
We have to wait and see whether Megastar can break the record of Bahubali collection’s through premier shows as it stands tall at 1.3 million, and still few locations have to update their numbers so fingers crossed till the premier shows numbers are out.
