Let Us Not Make It A Race: Yatra Director’s Plea

Yatra, the story of late legendary leader YS Rajasekhar Reddy is all set to be unfold on screens this Friday.

As the film awaits the public verdict, its director Mahi V. Raghav wrote a letter appealing to all film lovers and fans of other political leaders.

“Let us not quantify it or make it a race; let it be a celebration to rejoice and cherish his (YSR) journey,” he appealed to each and everyone.

Mahi V. Raghav doesn’t want Yatra to be compared with other biopics (read NTR) and requests it to be judged by its own merits and defects.

He is also open for criticism and is willing to correct his mistakes in his next films if any.

“Both NTR garu and YSR garu are the sons of this soil and proud Telugu legends who left behind a glorious legacy. Let our difference of opinion and disagreements not be a reason for disrespecting them,” Mahi wrote.

Yatra starring Malayalam superstar Mammootty in the lead role is hitting the marquee on Friday.
