Mega Star Chiranjeevi speech at Khadi No. 150, pre-release event. Accompanied by veteran Congress leader T. Subbarami Reddy, actors Allu Arjun, Sai Dharma Tej and Varun Tej, son Ram Charan and scores of other prominent personalities, on stage, Chiranjeevi addressed his waiting fans. Amidst cheers and thunderous applause, he said that he had been waiting to listen to this applause and whistles all these years. He related how the film got the title, Khaidi No.150. It was director Dasari Narayana Rao who suggested it, he said.
Over 50,000 people filled up the open spaces on the Guntur-Vijayawada national highway. The police had a tough time in controlling the youngsters who filled the entire venue with some of them even occupying tree tops. Top movie celebrities and popular directors such as Dasari Narayana Rao turned up for the event.
Chiranjeevi turned emotional as he shared his experience of making a movie after nearly a decade. Dressed in a grey shirt and jeans, he displayed energy and enthusiasm seen during his hey days as megastar. Leading lady Kajal Agarwal looked resplendent as she wore a shimmering golden yellow sari.
