It seems like the peak season for biopics in the cine industry. Following the making of highly anticipated projects on legendary actors NT Rama Rao and Savitri, talks are on for a biopic on former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister late YS Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR) titled ‘Yatra’. YSR was elected as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh twice, and was killed in a helicopter crash in 2009.
It has been officially announced that Mollywood superstar Mammootty will play the titular role in this esteemed project directed by Mahi Raghav. The film is said to be focussed on the events that led to the famous ‘Padayatra’ undertaken by the late YSR in 2004. The project is bankrolled by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy. The team is yet to finalise other members of the cast.
