VISAKHAPATNAM: A festival-like atmosphere prevailed at the cinema halls in Vizag on Wednesday as the 150th flick of mega star K Chiranjeevi  Khaidi No 150’ hit the screens. The fans, who were anxiously waiting for the last 10 years for their favourite star to appear in the silver screen, thronged the theatres since morning.

The fans played dhols, performed dances amid loud cheers for the mega star. However, black marketers cashed in on the situation as tickets at the majority of the cinema halls were sold out by Tuesday evening.

It was a common sight at most of the theatres as fans argued with the managements for sale of tickets as advance booking. Many were disappointed as they did not get tickets for weekend, as the managements hung “House-full” boards.

Guggili Surya, a student from Chaitanya Engineering College, said that tickets were not available even online and when they come to theatres, house-full boards were seen.
“Even though the option shows availability, we are not able to book owing to server problem. In theatres, house-full boards are hung till weekend,” he added.

Meanwhile, tickets were sold in black for additional charges at many theatres near RTC complex junction, One Town and Two Town areas. Even some sell tickets of shows in multiplexes for `300 to 400 for morning show and matinee, while `250 for rest of the shows. Parking issues were clearly seen at the theatres.
Inebriated fan creates scene

A fan of Chiranjeevi, in inebriated condition, created a scene at Rama Talkies by slightly slitting his throat after he did not get tickets for morning show of Khaidi No. 150. He even refused to go to hospital. He started shouting at the theatre gate alleging that the management had not given tickets in a proper way. However, people took him to a nearby hospital.
