In December, the makers of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s comeback film Khaidi No.150 faced a setback when they couldn’t manage to get permission to hold the film’s audio launch event at the Indira Gandhi Municipal Stadium (IGMS) in Vijayawada following a High Court order.
This left the film’s unit to drop the plans to organize the audio launch event altogether and instead they planned for a huge pre-release event on January 4th, surprisingly at the same venue. Ram Charan even released a video inviting fans to event. And again, the team has got yet another shock.
Local authorities have denied permission to the film’s team to organize the pre-release event at IGMS citing High Court’s previous order where the court, in its response following a writ petition 38639 of 2015, stated that IGMS should not be given for any purpose other than sports and games.
Now, this led to a war of words between the Mega fans and the Nandamuri fans. While the Mega fans alleged that Balayya and Chandrababu are behind this last minute setback keeping the epic clash between Khaidi No.150 and Gautamiputra Satakarni this Sankranthi, Nandamuri fans countered them saying that the government is only honoring the High Court’s order.
Some Nandamuri fans even reminded that the 175th day function of Chiranjeevi’s Indra was held at the same venue with the then Nara Chandrababu Naidu as the chief guest more than a decade ago. Meanwhile, Khaidi No.150’s pre-release event has now been shifted to Guntur.
