Its the season of biopics in Tollywood and already we have films on Gautamiputra Satakarni and now Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy released and in pipeline respectively. And then there is NTR being carved which showcases the life and times of the legendary actor and politician. Here is another such film.
This is not a full pledged biopic of Congress leader, former chief minister, late YS Rajasekhar Reddy, but the film will show only his iconic 'paada yatra', which voted him to power in 2004. Directed by Mahi V Raghav of "Anando Brahma" fame, the makers other day approached Malayalam Superstar Mammootty and got a nod from him.
Director Mahi confirmed, "Yes, Mammootty sir agreed to play the role of YSR. The film will be made on a lavish scale. I've to meet him soon again to decided and discuss the characterisation". And then, there comes the big news about the title of the film too. This iconic film will be titled "Yatra", in resemblance to its content.
Meanwhile, the presence of both Nayantara as YSR's wife and Surya as YS Jagan is completely rumoured. "We haven't finalised any other cast and neither approached Nayan and Surya for any role. They are just rumours" the director said.
