Mahi V Raghav is one of those people who was immensely inspired by the ideologies and agendas of YS Rajasekhar Reddy, former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. Reddy was widely popular among masses and had a huge following. And this was the reason why lakhs of people emerged at his residence when they learnt of his demise.
Mahi V Raghav, who has made films like 'Paathashala' and 'Anando Brahma', was inspired to make a film on the politician, especially on the 'Padayatra' part and so came up with the project 'Yatra' which is all set to release.
As per reports, southern star Mammootty will play the lead role in the film. The senior actor from the Malayalam industry fits perfectly in the role of YS Rajasekhar Reddy.
The teaser of the film was unveiled recently and has received a tremendous response from the audience.
And now, the latest reports say that the film been awarded the U certificate from CBFC and that too, without any cuts.
Mahi took to Twitter and wrote, "Except for my roots, my mom who hails away from Idupulapaya (kadapa). Our paths never crossed but was destined and chosen to tell Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s story. Finally, we did meet, all I could do is to THANKS HIM for making me his voice and for the opportunity to tell his story. #Yatra (sic)."
