I wondered if Yatra is about investigation into YSRs death: Mammootty

Speaking at the pre-release event of 'Yatra', Mollywood superstar Mammootty said that the film now belongs to the audience.  

"I can understand Telugu.  I need some more time to speak beautiful Telugu.  In 'Yatra', it's me who spoke all the lines.  Telugu is known as the 'Italian of the East'.  It's a poetic, rhythmic, beautiful language.  With a lot of effort, and with the assistance of my team, I could dub for this film myself," the veteran actor began saying.  

"When I was told about this project by cinematographer Shamdat, I was so excited to do a Telugu film for the first time in the last 23 years.  I was little confused about the subject of the movie, wondering if it's about some investigation into YSR's death.  This is an event-based biopic on YSR.  Before starting the film, I had the entire script in my hands to read it.  When I started shooting for the scenes, I could speak my lines comfortably," Mammootty revealed.  

"This is my third straight Telugu film.  A lot of people still love YSR.  I only need 1 percent of that love for me.  'Yatra' is now your film.  It's now your duty to make this a hit," Mammootty signed off.
