Mammootty to return to Telugu cinema after 25 years?
Reported By 06 Jan 2018
Director Mahi V Raghav is set to make a biopic based on the life of the late Chief Minister of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy, titled Yatra. According to latest developments, the team is weighing several options to sign on a popular star to play YSR's role and has recently initiated deliberations with Mammootty. "The negotiations are currently on. Although he liked the idea, Mammootty is yet to give the go-ahead to the filmmakers. Besides YSR’s role, the casting process for other roles is underway and an official announcement on the cast and crew will be out soon," informs a source from the production team.
If everything falls into place, the film will mark Mammootty's return to Telugu cinema after 25 years. To be produced by Shashi Devireddy and Vijay Chilla, Yatra is in the pre-production stage.
