KOCHI: Mega star Mammootty is all set to begin shooting of his third Telugu film Yatra, a biopic on former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.

The shooting for the movie will begin on June 18, while Mammootty will be seen in the sets from June 20.

Yatra is all about the late Chief Minister’s 1,500-km padayatra that helped him steer the party to power in Andhra Pradesh twice – in 2004 and 2009.
