YS Rajasekhara Reddy aka YSR is arguably the most popular and revered politicians that the state of Andhra Pradesh has ever seen. Even after years of his demise, he is widely regarded as a people’s leader and respected by millions. Yatra team is hoping to make the film as a fitting tribute to the iconic leader. Unlike other regular biopics, Yatra is an event based film. It primarily focuses on the time during YSR’s famous three-month-long padayathra in 2003, which was a changing point in his political career.
YSR’s role is said to be one of the most challenging roles in Mammootty’s career. In the posters and teasers released by the makers, Mammootty looks etremely convincing with his perfect Telugu diction and larger-than-life screen presence. Apart from Mammootty, the movie also stars Rao Ramesh, Anasuya Bharadwaj, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Posani Krishna Murali, Vinod Kumar and Sachin Khedekar.
Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devi Reddy are jointly producing the movie under their banner of 70MM Entertainments. It will be released simultaneously in Telugu and Malayalam on February 8.
