Yatra : Why going back and forth on Jagan’s role


Yatra is touted to be a glorifying biopic on former Telugu Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy. Directed by Mahi V Raghav, the film has stalwart actor Mammootty stepping into the shoes of YSR.

Ever since the biopic has been officially announced, there has been a lot of buzz regarding YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s role. Initially, the makers have locked Tamil star hero Suriya for Jagan’s role. Now, it is speculated that Suriya’s brother Karthi is in talks for the role.

The reason for this indecision is Mammootty as he is reluctant to cast a top star for Jagan’s role. Sources say that he is not in favour to cast a well known face in that character.

The makers are planning to wrap up Mammootty’s scenes first so that they will have more flexibility in choosing Jagan’s character.

If both Suriya and Karthi are out of the race, it is going to be Vishal Reddy who will reprise Jagan’s role. We have to wait for some more time to end the suspense on this role.
