The biopic trend of Bollywood has spread to Tollywood. Recently the biopics of Dhoni, Sachin and Mahaveer Singh in Hindi have scored success at Boxoffice. In Telugu biopics of NTR, Savitri, Pullela Gopichand and Uyalawada Narasimha Reddy are under production. Now Mahanta YS Rajasekhar Reddy biopic joins the list.
The director of ‘Anando Brahma’ Mahi Raghava seems to be busy working on the script to make YSR biopic whose untimely death after being elected as Chief Minister twice in the joint Andhra Pradesh, has changed the face of AP. Makers of the film have reportedly approached Malayalam superstar Mammootty and have convinced him to act in the role of YSR in this crazy project. However, the green signal has not yet come from Mammootty to act as YSR.
Mahi Raghava, who is dealing with the most crucial project before the election, is striving for the output of the film. Maha Raghava is trying to meet YSR’s son YS Jagan for the permission of YSR biopic. The film is likely to have Jagan’s role. But it is interesting to see who is going to take the role of Jagan.
On the other hand, NTR biopic to be released before the elections Balayya is doing a lead role. Even the YSR Biopic film is also planned to be released before the polls.
