Presenting you the teaser of #Yatra starring @mammukka as Late Dr. YSR. @MahiVRaghav @VijayChilla @devireddyshashi #ShivaMeka @K_RiverRecords #YatraOnFeb8th #YatraTeaser”
The teaser starts with Mammootty taking a walk in the grain field and follows the plight of farmers, who are struggling with erratic water, electricity and crop prices.
Mammootty’s YS Rajasekhara Reddy then emerges as the people’s leader and hero.
YSR, as the Andhra Chief Minister was known, led the state from 2004 until his death in a helicopter crash in September 2009, during his second term in office. The Tamil movie draws its title from 1,475-km journey YSR undertook on foot to campaign for the 2004 state elections.
