Muscat: Indian actor Chiranjeevi’s movie Khaidi No. 150 (Prisoner No. 150) has generated quite a buzz among the Indian expatriates living in Oman.
Such is the interest in the movie that a construction company in Oman has declared a holiday on Wednesday when the superstar’s comeback movie hits screens across the globe.
Chiranjeevi’s latest flick is expected to be released in Star Cinemas, City Cinema Sohar, City Cinema Buraimi, City Cinema Sur, City Cinema Aziaba, City Cinema Panorama, City Cinema Ruwi and in Vox Cinemas Qurum besides Vox Cinemas at the Muscat City Centre in Oman.
“We are expecting a very good response in all these cinemas this weekend,” a senior official of City Cinema said.
Al Riyad Construction and Trading LLC in Oman declared a holiday for its staff of about 70 in Oman so that all its employees can go and watch the movie. “We want our employees to enjoy as our superstar is making a comeback after 11 years,” manager of projects, Ramadas Chandika, said.
Ramadas Chandika has been involved with the noble cause of blood donation in Oman for more than two decades.
He first started donating blood, along with 15 other people, under the umbrella of a volunteer group called the Chiru Mega Youth Force (CMYF), which he started in Oman in 2001.
His favourite actor, Chiranjeevi, is his inspiration. The actor had started a blood bank in Andhra Pradesh, Chandika’s native state in India.
“Since Chiranjeevi has always been my favourite actor, I was motivated by his idea when he started the blood bank. I also thought of starting something like that in Oman.”
Khaidi No 150 is an Indian Telugu-language action drama film, directed by V. V. Vinayak and written by AR Murugadoss.
The film features Chiranjeevi in a dual role and also marks his comeback to acting after 10 years in his 150th film. It is a remake of the Tamil film Kaththi (2014).
