Mammootty and Suhasini to come together once again!!
Mammootty and Suhasini were one of the most favourite pairs of Mollywood during the late 80s and 90s. They have acted together in a number of films like Koodevide, Katha Ithuvere, Ente Upasana, Rakkuyilin Ragasadassil, Pranam etc. After a long gap, they both are coming together once again in the YSR biopic, Yatra. While Mammootty plays the late CM’s role, Suhasini has been cast in a very crucial role. However, they both are not playing a pair in the movie.
Mahi Raghav, who has made movies like ‘Paathshala’ and ‘Anando Brahma’, is directing Yatra. Shoot for the movie commenced earlier this week in Hyderabad. They have planned to shoot the movie in multiple schedules and wrap it up by September. The movie is slated for a Sankaranti release, next January.
Yatra has been planned as one of the biggest movies in Telugu cinema in recent years. YS Rajashekhara Reddy, popularly called as YSR, is one of the most popular and revered politicians that the state of Andhra Pradesh has ever seen. Upon hearing his unfortunate death in a helicopter crash, hundreds of his followers are said to have committed suicide.
According to director Mahi Raghav, Yatra is an event based film which primarily focuses on the time during YSR’s famous three-month-long padayatra in 2003. The 1500 kilometer long padayatra was a defining moment in his career which transformed him into a people’s leader.
Yatra’s technical crew includes cinematographer Sathyan Sooryan of ‘Theeran Adhigaram Ondru’ fame and composer K. The movie is being produced jointly by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devi under the banner of 70MM Entertainments.
