The makers of YSR biopic titled “Yatra” announced that the film is all set to hit silver screens on February 8th. Being directed by Mahi V Raghav, the film stars Malayalam superstar Mammootty in the title role.
Speculation is rife that the makers wanted to release the biopic just before the elections in Andhra Pradesh as it will have great impact on the people. Also, it is heard that the makers wanted to release the film after the release of Nandamuri Balakrishna’s NTR biopic “Kathanayakudu”, that is scheduled to hit theatres on January 25th.
A tribute to the greatest journey history has ever witnessed. #Yatra in cinemas from 8th Feb.

Earlier, it was heard that the moviemakers wanted to release film when YS Jagan ends his Padayatra but now, they planned to release the same in February.
If buzz has to be believed, the regular shooting of the film was wrapped up a month ago and the makers are busy with the post-production work.
