As we reported earlier that the makers of Yatra, the Biopic of Former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Rajasekhara Reddy which has Malayalam Superstar Mammootty playing the titular role started it regular shooting from June 22nd.
Mammootty received grand and unique way of welcome from ‘Yatra’ makers. The very next minute Mammootty entered Yatra sets yesterday, a special team welcomed him like the way soldiers hail emperor. Apparently, it was Goosebumps moment for him. The special team danced on chartbuster songs of Mammotty’s super hit films. Mammootty bears an uncanny resemblance to the iconic Telugu politician YS Rajasekhar Reddy in Yatra first look poster released a couple of months ago.
This film is being directed by ‘Anando Brahma’ fame Mahi V Raghav. He reportedly conducted extensive research into the life of the Late Chief Minister. The makers have already released the First Look Poster of the film. 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. Yatra which is a biopic of YSR is produced by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy under 70 MM Entertainments Banner.
