Success of legendary actress Savitri's biopic Mahanati inspired many Tollywood filmmakers to come up with biopics on legendary personalities. Natasimha Nandamuri Balakrishna tested his luck with NTR biopic. However the film's first part Kathanayakudu despite positive reviews turned out to be all time disaster. Many felt that Kathanayakudu failed as the makers sang only the praises of NTR to the extremes completely neglecting the negatives.
YSR biopic titled Yatra is set for a grand release on February 8th. Makers of this film seem to be playing their film against NTR biopic second part Mahanayakudu. With reports coming out that NTR biopic makers dare not to show any negative qualities of NTR or Chandra Babu, Yatra director came up with a shocking statement.
He said, "In biopics, we need not to show that the central character is a god. It's enough if we show the good work done by them". Many are wondering whether Yatra attack on Kathanayakudu or Mahanayakudu will help it shake the box office.
