Chiranjeevi is making a comeback in a full-length role after eight years in Khaidi No 150, which also marks his 150th film.
The film is the official remake of Tamil blockbuster Kaththi, and is being directed by V V Vinayak and produced by Ram Charan.
Over the last few weeks, some reports hinted that the release of Khaidi No 150, originally planned as a Sankranti 2017 treat, would be postponed due to various reasons.
However, producer Ram Charan, putting all the rumours to rest, has confirmed that the film will hit the screens as originally planned.
Chiranjeeviâ€™s film will take on Balakrishnaâ€™s Gauthamiputra Satakarni at the box-office next year, when they release it for Sankranti.
Itâ€™s the first time audiences will witness the box-office battle of Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna and the industry has pinned high hopes on both the film.
In Khaidi No 150, Chiranjeevi will be seen in a dual role and will romance Kajal Aggarwal. Ram Charan has confirmed that 70% of the film has already been completed.
Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi will don a new avatar as a TV show host of Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu, the Telugu version of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
He has already shot for a few episodes and is most likely to shoot for a few more before joining the sets of his film.
