The biopic mania can be classified as two parts wherein the first part comprised of lesser known actors getting into the projects and the second part is all about bringing brand to the project using star power. ‘Mahanati’ had a long list of film celebrities doing roles and the same is happening with the biopic on the great N T Rama Rao.
Meanwhile, another biopic is also on similar lines. We are talking about the film ‘Yatra’ based on the life of the late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy. This has Malayalam megastar Mammootty as the lead while the supremely talented Suriya would be essaying the role of Y S Jagan. Helmed by Mahi V Raghav, the film has got a good list of branded artistes.
Now, the icing on the cake has come from a very powerful direction. According to sources, young rebel star Prabhas has come forward and assured producer Vijay that he should not worry about the budget and focus on getting quality faces. Buzz is that Vijay is a good friend of Prabhas and the latter is willing to pump money if required. What more does ‘Yatra’ need after the support of Baahubali.
