It is known news that Malayalam star Mammootty is reprising the role of YS Rajasekhar Reddy- the late Chief Minister of United Andhra Pradesh in Yatra. The first look poster showing Mammootty’s YSR was leaked before the makers could officially release it as per the date and time of their choice. The leak forced the makers to officially release it on Saturday. The director Mahi V Raghav took to twitter and wrote, “Appreciate and overwhelmed by the interest and support for Yatra… it is not fair to leak and undermine the work of the technicians. The official poster will be shortly Out.”
Coming on the poster, Mammootty looks every bit like politician YS Rajasekhara Reddy. The actor’s broad physique and tall frame match imposing appearance of the late leader of the Congress party. The biopic will chronicle the life of YSR from 1999 to 2004.
Bankrolled by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy, Yatra is expected to go on floors in June and is expected to hit the theaters in January 2019.
