Jiiva, known for his role in the successful film “Rangam”, aimed to establish a foothold in the Telugu market, despite earlier struggles. Despite featuring in dubbed Telugu films, he faced challenges in gaining a substantial fan base. Jiiva now places his bets on the sequel to “Yatra,” directed by Mahi V Raghav, where he reprises the role of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

The team is confident about the film’s potential success, and Jiiva sees it as an opportunity to expand his market in the Telugu states. With the film poised to draw attention, Jiiva aims to overcome past challenges and solidify his presence in the film industry.
