Ace politician Ys Rajasekhar Reddy’s biopic Yatra and legendary film personality Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s biopic NTR were planned for release during Sankranthi. However, makers of Yatra have advanced release date of their film.
Directed by Mahi V Raghav, Yatra will hit the screens on the very special occasion of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s birthday to fall on December 21st. On the very same day, mega hero Varun Tej’s space thriller Antariksham 9000 KMPH directed by Sankalp Reddy will be gracing the theater. So, it will be tough competition between these two films.
Mammootty is portraying YSR in Yatra which is fast progressing with its shoot. It is after almost two decades that Mammootty is starring in a Telugu movie.
The biopic will concentrate on the time period from 1999-2004, when YSR took out a 1,400-km Padayatra that shaped the politics of the undivided Andhra Pradesh.
