Tollywood is bracing itself for a clash of the titans-situation at the box office as the grapevine is rife with rumours of veteran actors Chiranjeevi and Balakrishna getting ready to fight it out at Sankranti. Chiranjeevi's 150th film 'Khaidi No 150', and Bala's 100th film 'Gautamiputra Satakarani'- both are slated as Sankranti release.

While the latter's movie will release on January 12, the makers of 'Khaidi', are yet to announce a date. They have however, confirmed to a January release. The last time the two ace actors clashes was during the 2001 Sankranti, when Balayya's 'Narasimha Naidu', and Chira's 'Mrugaraju' released on the same day. Bala clearly won that battle, which just adds to the anticipation. 'Khaidi No 15-' is a Telugu remake of Tamil superhit 'Kaththi', Balayya's film is based on the life of a warrior of the Satavahana empire, Gautamiputra.
