The casting of ‘Yaatra’, which happens to be a biopic of late CM YS Rajasekhar Reddy is being slowly finalised and some big names are popping up now. Directed by Mahi V Raghav, shooting of this film started already.
While Malayalam superstar Mammootty is essaying the role of YSR in this biopic, we hear that Posani is playing YSR’s personal assistant Sureedu, while Baahubali fame Ashrita will be seen as YS Vijayamma. Recently heroine Bhumika has rejected the rumours that she’s playing Ys Jagan’s sister in this film. Director Mahi also confirmed that there is no scene of Jagan’s sister in his script.
Cut to other casting, we hear that former Home Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy’s role will be seen to the fullest in this film. For that reason, director Mahi is said to have roped in former heroine Suhasini, wife of director Mani Ratnam. These days she’s not being seen in many films and it looks like the script of YSR’s story has really excited her.
But what is that key role Sabitha Indra Reddy played during YSR’s Paada Yaatra is something we have to see. The lady minister holds the record of becoming the first ever woman home minister of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh state.
