Yatra, the sensational project that has been made from the life story of YS Rajasekhar Reddy has locked in on a release date. Featuring Mammootty as YSR and Karthi as Jaganmohan Reddy and many other stars such as Rao Ramesh, Anasuya Bharadwaj and Posani Krishna Murali in key roles, Yatra is set to hit theaters on the 21st of December, 2018.
This date has a significance as it happens to be YS Jagan’s birthday. YSR, who served as the chief minister for Andhra Pradesh from 2004-2009 is popular for his projects like Jalayagnam and Indiramma illu wherein he brought in water for irrigation for thousands of acres of lands and heavy subsidies on housing for the poor.
Yatra is being directed by Mahi V.Raghav, the director of the movie Village lo Vinayakudu and Anandho Brahma, both belonging to comedy genre. Mahi is a foreign return and was not familiar with YSR or any of his projects. While shooting for Village lo Vinayakudu, he interacted with the locals and found stories and personality of YSR fascinating and decided to work on it at a later stage. Produced by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devi Reddy, Yatra is going to be out under the banners of 70MM Pictures.
