Hyderabad Badshaw Chiranjeevi

Widely acknowledged as the man who drafted a new set of rules for contemporary Telugu cinema, Megastar-Annayya to his fans- has acted in 143 movies till date. Though his movies generally fare well all over the state, he has an exceptional record in Hyderabad. 65 of his movies (till Stalin) run for 50 days or more in their main theaters in Hyderabad (precisely at X roads). He also holds the record for maximum number of direct 100 days movies (34) in the capital city and he is also the only hero to have 7 direct 100's before and after the introduction of the slab system of taxation (1984-2005) by the state government.

These records are the result of Chiranjeevi hard work, charm and mass appeal. With Chiru in top-form since returning from a sabbatical (1996) and with no consistent competition around, he is neatly positioned to create several more records in the coming years. But for now, here is the list of his movies that have run for 50 days or more at their main theaters in Hyderabad.
