The budget for “Yatra” and the remuneration for Mammooty and Jeeva have been revealed. Mahi V Raghav is releasing a sequel to his 2019 film Yatra on 8th February, called Yatra 2. Unlike typical entertaining movies, this one is full of political references and agendas. It tells the story of AP CM YS Jagan mohan Reddy’s life after YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s death and his Padayatra against the wishes of the Congress high command. With elections in AP approaching, YSRCP supporters are optimistic about the film.
The Yatra 2 movie has a massive budget of 50Cr, with a significant portion 50% aount going to actor remuneration like Mammooty, Jeeva, Mahesh Manjrekar, and the rest of the crew. The chances of recovering this budget seem unlikely, but it’s not considered a loss as it is seen as a venture benefiting YSRCP. The film is not just about making money; it’s about reaching a wide audience.
Yatra 2 focuses on Jaganmohan Reddy taking on his father’s role after a tragic death, facing challenges from rivals. This Telugu drama, based on real events, is sentimental and unfolds slowly. It includes brief sequences of police brutality and has a runtime of 2 hours, 10 minutes, and 8 seconds.
