Among the many biopics that are currently on the floors the one project which is currently grabbing attention is ‘Yatra’ based on the life of the late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy. So far, the pre release stints have worked and the biggest asset happens to be Malayalam megastar Mammootty who has stepped into the shoes of the iconic leader.
Since the start of the project speculations have been rife on who is going to essay the role of Y S Jagan, son of YSR. Initially it was considered that the supremely talented Suriya would be doing it because he is also the brand ambassador for Bharathi Cement, owned by Jagan. However, a new name is now popping up.
It is that of the sharp eyed Tamil star Karthi. Incidentally, Karthi is the younger brother of Suriya and there are reports that director Mahi V Raghav is planning to rope in Karthi for this role. In a way, it would be a good entry for Karthi because he has been eyeing the Telugu market since long. The coming days will give further clarity on this one.
