Director Mahi V Raghav has announced his next after Yatra which turned out to be an average hit at the box-office this February. The film was a biopic on the late chief minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Rajasekar Reddy. Soon after its release, the director had said that his next would be a biopic on YSR’s son and the current chief minister of Andhra YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. But this film will take some years to shape up and in the meanwhile, Mahi has announced his new film titled Syndicate.

He chose his birthday to reveal the news and penned on his social media handle, “The hardest task for me as a storyteller is which story to tell – rather than how to tell it :). Box office trends, budgets, cast… all of these statistics aren’t much help in deciding ‘the one’. It’s always been that silent whisper which I had to trust – a voice that tells me that this is the true story that rips enough to fall. My next story will be an action drama titled Syndicate. Hope to see the story come to life from the script and on to the screen someday. Hopefully, that someday is soon.”

It may be noted here that Yatra was produced by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy under the banner 70 MM Pictures. It had Mammootty playing YSR with a bevy of stars in the cast including 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. The film’s technical crew included K for music, Sathyan Sooryan for cinematography and A Sreekar Prasad for editing. In this biopic, director Mahi V Raghav traced out YSR’s political journey and his famous Pada Yatra in 2003 that put him on the chief minister’s chair.
