Malayalam superstar Mammootty will be donning the role of Andhra Pradesh’s former Chief Minister, late YS Rajasekhara Reddy, popularly known as YSR, in the film being made over him. The biopic, titled ‘Yatra’, will be directed by Mahi V Raghav of ‘Anando Brahma’ fame, and produced by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy.
The film’s unit has recently released the actor’s first look from the film and the fans seem to be quite excited. “He wanted to leave a footprint in history instead, he left a footprint in the hearts of people,” says a quote on the poster. The film’s shoot is set to begin on April 9th.
On the other hand, there have reports speculating the casting of actress Nayanthara and Tamil actor Suriya as Vijayamma and YS Jagan respectively. However, it has been learned that the cast has not been finalised yet.
‘Yatra’, the biopic on YSR, will be yet another addition to the list of biopics that are slated to thrill the Tollywood audience in the coming days. While Chiranjeevi is busy with ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’, the biopic of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, numerous directors and actors are planning to film the story of popular actor and politician N.T Rama Rao. Actress Savitri’s biopic, ‘Mahanti’, too will be hitting the screens soon.
