Director Mahi V Raghav has been getting positive reviews about his recently released Yatra, a biopic on the late chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, YS Rajasekar Reddy. The film has the Malayalam mega star Mammootty playing YSR besides a host of other actors in pivotal roles.
Ever since the release of Yatra, there have been various reports about Mahi V Raghavâ€™s next venture. According to buzz doing the rounds, he will be working on a web series soon. Sources in the know say that the director understands well that web series are the latest trend and is looking to carve a niche for himself. He has begun writing for this web series but it is still not clear if he would be wielding the megaphone for it. This web series will be produced by a leading online content provider, we hear.
Besides this web series, Mahi V Raghav is also working on two feature films. Trade sources report that the director has been signed up by two leading production houses for which he is readying two scripts. It is still too early to speculate about the lead actors that will be part of these projects.
It may be noted that there were also reports that the director was in talks with Dulquer Salmaan, son of Mammootty, for a film. Apparently, the director had narrated a one-liner to the young actor and has got the green signal to develop it further. We can expect an official announcement once everything falls in place.
Dulquer is currently busy with a slew of films in different languages. He has the Malayalam movie Oru Yamandan Premakadha directed by BC Boufal, who will be making his directorial debut, set for release. The film is in the last leg of shooting with its release planned in April this year. The film is written by Bibin George and Vishnu Unnikrishnan.
