YSR biopic: Yatra teaser to be released on July 8

Malayalam superstar Mammootty is currently in Hyderabad shooting for his Telugu film Yatra, which is the biopic of late Andhra Pradesh CM YS Rajasekhara Reddy. Mahi Raghav is directing this movie. Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devi are jointly producing the movie under their banner of 70MM Entertainments. The makers have informed that Yatra’s first teaser will be released on July 8, the birthday of YSR.

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 padayatra was a defining moment in his career which transformed him into a people’s leader. One of the striking elements of his padayatra was him walking over 300 kms in shoes. The newly released poster also indicates the same.

Yatra is being made as one of the biggest ever biopics in Telugu cinema history. The recent success of Mahanati, the biopic on legendary actress Savithri, has clearly inspired the makers of Yatra. Apart from Mammootty, the movie also has some leading actors from Telugu cinema essaying crucial roles. Jagapathi Babu, Suhasini and Bhumika are already confirmed to be part of the cast.

The makers ar planning to complete shooting and post-production formalities in six months and release the film by January 2019.
