Suriya: I am not playing YS Jagan in Yatra 2

‘Yatra’ director Mahi V Raghav has made it official that he will be directing ‘Yatra 2’. It will begin from the point where YS Rajasekhar Reddy died in a helicopter crash in 2009. It will begin from YSR’s grave and narrate the march of YS Jaganmohan Reddy since then.  

The big question is: Who will play Jagan in the film? 

‘Yatra’ saw Mammootty playing YSR. For ‘Yatra 2’ to gain hype in both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, it’s not enough for the makers to say that it is a film on the CM. The audience expect a star to play the role. 

There were hopes on Suriya, who has known Jagan for many years.  He calls the YSRCP supremo “Jagan anna”. However, Suriya has made it clear that he will not be essaying Jagan in any film. 

So, who will do the honours? Only time will tell.
