Huge Risk with YSR Biopic?

The Biopic of Former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, YSR is titled Yatra and has Malayalam Superstar Mammootty playing the titular role. The regular shooting of the film began recently in Hyderabad and the makers have released the First look Teaser earlier today as YSR Jayanthi Special. The response has been decent. On the other side, we are told that the movie is being produced with a whopping 30 Crore. This is a huge risk as Mammootty has no market in Telugu and it has to be sold only on YSR’s Brand Value. The makers are keen to complete the entire film shoot in a single non-stop schedule.

Anando Brahma fame Mahi V Raghav is directing this biopic which is expected to hit the screens early next year. There are reports that it may clash with NTR Biopic which releases for Sankranthi 2019. There are rumors that YSR Congress is funding this project to get the advantage in 2019 Elections but there is no confirmation about the same. NTR’s Biopic starring Nandamuri Balakrishna will be helping the ruling part of Andhra Pradesh, the Telugu Desam Party.
