Megastar Chiranjeevi and Nandamuri Balakrishna have always had a box office rivalry for decades. The last time they were involved in a box office tiff was five years ago with the movies Khaidi No. 150 and Gautamiputra Satakarni.
Although both of these senior heroes have a huge market in Telugu states, Chiranjeevi always had the upper hand over Balakrishna when it comes to box office numbers. When their films Khaidi No. 150 and Gautamiputra Satakarni clashed, Khaidi No. 150 surpassed Balakrishna’s Gautamiputra Satakarni by a huge margin and made more than double of what Gautamiputra Satakarni did.
Sankranthi 2023: Chiru and Balayya are gearing up for another big clash. Balayya’s “Veera Simha Reddy” has already booked its release date for the upcoming festive season. As per our insider sources, Chiranjeevi’s Mega154 film is also expected to be released on the same day as Mega154. The Mega 154 release date and title will be unveiled on October 24th.
This time the battle will be interesting as Balayya looks to be in better form than Chiru, who has tasted back-to-back failures in the form of ‘Acharya’ and ‘Godfather’. Let’s wait and see how things work for these two big stars of Tollywood.
