Stalwart actor Mammooty has stepped into the shoes of late Chief Minister Rajasekhar Reddy for a biopic titled as Yatra. As the story majorly focuses on the Padayatra taken up by Rajasekhar Reddy, the film will showcase very little of his personal life and family.
As the makers want to make this as a memorable biopic, they are looking for prominent faces to cast in the roles of YS Jagan and YS Vijayamma though they have very little screen presence. But, Mammooty is against casting notable actors for these roles. Several actors were proposed by the makers, but Mammooty is unwilling to their choice.
Not to hurt Mammooty, Yatra producers are in a quandary on how to finalize actor for YS Jagan’s role. Popular artist Saranya Mohan was considered for Vijayamma’s role, but due to Mammooty condition an unknown artist who appeared Baahubali has finally been roped.
As the release date is fast approaching, the team is a hurry to wrap up the shooting formalities by completing Jagan’s portion. But, Mammooty seems have turned to be a liability for the casting and his conditions are slightly hurting the producers.
