Telugu360 was the first to reveal that Malayalam Superstar Mammootty is in talks to reprise the role of legendary politician YS Rajasekhar Reddy in his biopic. Now the film’s director Mahi V Raghav confirmed the news saying that the Superstar gave his nod for the role and the regular shoot of the prestigious project will kick-start from June. “Yatra” is the working title of the film and it is yet to be locked. The young director has been working on the script from the past few months and interesting aspects from YSR’s life have been picked up and they are worked on.
However Mahi V Raghav trashed the rumours of Suriya and Nayanthara being approached for other key roles YS Jagan and YS Vijayamma respectively. “My focus stood completely on the lead actor and once Mammootty sir came on to the board, I am working on the rest of the cast. No one has been approached till date. Will be meeting Mammootty sir soon and will work together for the characterization of YSR. We are in plans to make the film on high standards and we have done enough research on his role” informed Mahi V Raghav to a leading news daily.
Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy will produce this prestigious project. More details to be out soon.
