According to the latest update, the makers have locked the release date of Yatra and they’re releasing the biopic on 21st Dec, i.e birthday of YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who is the founder and president of YSR Congress. The makers are going to release the movie on YS Jagan’s birthday as a gift to him.
Unlike other biopics, Yatra does not chronicle the entire life of YSR (YS Rajasekhara Reddy). Instead, the story is just about the historic padayatra of YSR that changed the course of Andhra Pradesh’s politics.
Earlier it was heard that Kollywood star Karthi will play the role of YS Jaganmohan Reddy, the son of YSR but now as per the reliable sources, Vijay Deverakonda is playing Jagan. Anchor turned Anasuya Bharadwaj and Posani Murali are other actors who are part of this project. Versatile actor Jagapathi Babu is playing the role of YSR’s father YS Raja Reddy, in Yatra, which is being bankrolled by Vijay Chilla and Shashi Devireddy under the banner of 70mm Entertainments.
Currently Vijay Deverakonda is enjoying the success of her recent offering – a romantic entertainer Geetha Govindam and is also working for upcoming movies NOTA and Dear Comrade. In NOTA, Vijay Deverakonda will also be seen playing a politician.
