The director of Yatra, Mahi V Raghav, is planning on his next directorial. With Yatra set for release on February 8, the director is busy with its post-production. But reports have emerged that he will be signing up Vishal and Nani for his next. Sources in the know say that the director has impressed both the stars with a good story line and have sought their approval. To be made in Tamil and Telugu, this multi-starrer will be bankrolled by Prasad V Potluri under his banner PVP Cinemas. Enquiries as to when the project would commence disclosed that it will happen soon after the release of Yatra.
Yatra is easily one of the most expected films in the Telugu film industry. Being the biopic on the late Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Rajasekar Reddy, the film has Mammootty playing him in reel life. While the Malayalam mega star Mammootty plays the legendary political leader YS Rajasekar Reddy in it, the star cast also includes Jagapathi Babu, who plays YSR's father YS Raja Reddy, Rao Ramesh as KVP Ramachandra Rao, who was YSR's closest friend from his medical college days and Suhasini Mani Ratnam as the former minister Sabitha Indra Reddy.
Directed by Mahi Raghav, Yatra is being produced jointly by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devi under the banner of 70MM Entertainments. To be made in Telugu and Tamil, Mammootty will be dubbing with his own voice in both the versions to lend credibility to his role. The Yatra team had already caught the attention of the film buffs and netizens by releasing the first look poster featuring Mammootty as YSR.
